It’s a really inexpensive way to turn any memory card (like those used in digital cameras, mp3 players, camcorders, etc.) into a transportable hard drive (aka a flash drive) to store files, pictures, etc. — or to transfer things from one computer to another.
Now, I can turn any unused memory card into a dirt-cheap USB thumb drive!
How it Works…
Simply purchase a unique Keychain Memory Card Reader made for the particular type of memory card that you have on hand — either SmartMedia, Memory Stick, CompactFlash, eXtreme Digital, Secure Digital.
They’re cheap too — no matter which one you choose!
These make great gifts, or a great way for you yourself to use all of the different types of memory cards you already have.
What a cool idea! Thanks to Steve Bass for the heads up on this one…
I like to help people find unique ways to do things in order to save time & money — so I write about “outside the box” ideas that most wouldn’t think of. As a lifelong dog owner, I often share my best tips for living with and training dogs. I worked in Higher Ed over 10 years before switching gears to pursue activities that I’m truly passionate about. I’ve worked at a vet, in a photo lab, and at a zoo — to name a few. I enjoy the outdoors via bicycle, motorcycle, Jeep, or RV.
