It's a little (about 1" long amaybe 3/4" wide) plastic card which will plug into a slot in your camera, PDA, phone, PC, GPS, PS3 or whatever else you have that has the right sort of slot built in. Built into it is a flash memory chip, so once it's plugged in, you can store data on it - either to provide extra storage on a device that doesn't have enough of its own (very common in cellphones) or to make it easy to transfer data between one machine and another (cameras often use them this way).

First thing to think about when buying one is how much storage capacity (measured in gigaBytes) you need - the more you want, the more it costs.

Note also that there are related formats - things like Micro SD which work identically, but are physically smaller, and others like XD and MS which are different both in size and the electrical detail of how they work.

Secure Digital (SD) is a non-volatile memory card format developed by Matsushita, SanDisk, and Toshiba for use in portable devices. Today it is widely used in digital cameras, handheld computers, PDAs, mobile phones, GPS receivers, and video game consoles. Standard SD card capacities range from 4 MB to 4 GB, and for high capacity SDHC cards from 4 GB to 32 GB as of 2008.

My phone show memory full,but i hae nothing on my SD card how do i move information from my phone memory to my SD card.


I had a similar issue. You need to go to the settings menu and check to see if your phone is recognized the chip. If no, power off your phone, take out the chip and reinstall it. If your phone is reading your chip, there are many apps you cc an download in google play. If your chip is not recognized, check it in a another phone.

Cant find SD card


The 4 gig card is the problem. I bought a 4 gig for mine and had the same problem. My wife had a 1 gig and I tried it in my phone and it worked fine. So I traded with her. Made a file on the computer to offload all her stuff, and reload mine. It sucks you can't use a larger card, but it is what it is!!

Write protection


Check the card. SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card. If the switch is already in the proper position, slide it fully the other way and then back again.
