For many people the microSD card has been something of a mixed blessing. This is because sometimes you encounter a computer or laptop where there is no SD card adapter, or more commonly, you simply don't have the SD to microSD card adapter with you. When this happens you are not able to access the data on your microSD card. That can be frustrating. It can cause business delays, and it can create personal problems if you can't access important family photos. This is especially true if you have important photographs or documents on your card that you are unable to access.
Fortunately there is a new type of microSD card being shipped, and you can either purchase these new microSDXC cards, or you can purchase a standalone adapter. In the tutorial below we are going to show you exactly how to use one of these new microSDXC cards. We will be using a Kingston 64 GB microSDXC card. This is a class 10 card, which means it suitable for media such as videos and burst photography or large format rapid data transfer files.
Push out on the back of each section, which will cause the components to fall out one at a time. Make sure you do this on the table or other secure area, so that you do not lose or drop any of your components.
Additionally, you may also slide the lock button up or down to prevent read-and-write capabilities on your microSD card
Note in the photo below that we have the lock button in the midway position. It is halfway between locked and unlocked. To lock push all the way down towards the bottom where the microSD card is inserted. To unlock push all the up to where the Kingston text appears.
The purpose of this adapter is so that you don't have to constantly carry around your microSD card adapter. It will allow you to have a USB device handy, where you can insert your microSD card into the USB adapter.
