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 got my first computer in 1986 and immediately started writing, saving documents, and organizing my entire life on it. Thus began my love affair with gadgets and all things tech. I built my first website in 1998 in old-school HTML code — before websites were "a thing". Blogs weren't invented yet. It was the same year that Google was born. My husband and I created TheFunTimesGuide.com in 2004 — before YouTube, Twitter, Reddit, and Mashable were launched. That was the year Facebook started and 'blog' was the Word of the Year according Merriam-Webster. Ever since then, anytime a new electronic gadget hits the market… I have to have it. (My husband's impulsive nature to try out every new tech gadget invented is even worse than mine!) When I'm not trying out fun new tech gadgets, you'll find me at the corner of Good News & Fun Times as publisher of The Fun Times Guide (32 fun & helpful websites).
