With memory cards and card readers, you can record and save your favorite content, then transfer media across your devices as you save, edit, and share your library.
A memory card is flash-based storage that typically comes in a slim, lightweight form. You can insert a memory card into a built-in slot on a device, via a memory card reader, microSD card reader, or with a similar adapter.
Memory cards save data on a wide range of portable devices, such as smartphones, cameras, and handheld gaming consoles — some even work with Chromebooks. Their simplicity makes them a prime choice for storage while on the move.
“Memory card” covers different types of flexible, portable data storage. One of the most popular card types, SD — or secure digital — memory cards feature a high rate of data transfer and low battery consumption.
microSD memory cards are simply smaller versions of SD memory cards, built specifically for compact devices like phones or Nintendo™ Switch™, which have limited built-in storage capacity.
SD memory cards and microSD memory cards come in multiple storage capacities to meet virtually every need, from saving family photos on your smartphone to shooting high-quality video with a GoPro™.
While 64GB1 and 128GB memory cards are popular choices for everyday uses, flash storage capacity can reach 1TB in a single card for more intensive requirements, such as 4K and 8K UHD video recording.
