Knowing Types of Memory Card

If you use digital camera or Smartphone, you must know card memory well. On the previous article, I have covered about some tips on preserving this smart card so it can last long and is always ready to be used anytime. But do you know that there are so many types of memory cards in the market? And if you did not know, you may change your card with one that can perform faster with much bigger capacity.

Types of memory card

1. SD (secure digital)
SD card, so far, is the most common memory card. It is compatible for most digital cameras.

2. SDHC (Secure Digital High Capacity)
This one is actually an SD memory card but it has bigger capacity to go with. SD card can only accommodate data no more than 2GB while the SDHC card can be used with maximum capacity of 32 GB. These two cards have the same size and shape, but for the type of media, they are different. Though, the slot of your camera can afford to match the SDHC card, yet you have to be careful because if the camera model is made before the card is created then maybe it cannot recognize the card.

3. SDXC (Secure Digital extra Capacity)
This one is classified as SD card but with much bigger capacity and faster speed in processing data. This type of card has maximum size of 2TB (Terabyte). Alike with the SDHC, SDXC card can be attached into regular SD slot, yet most cameras may not be able to recognize this new technology. So it is better for you to do some checking first. Your computer has to be able to read the exFAT type of file in order to be compatible with this card. For now, the operating system of Linux, Windows 7, Mac, OSX (Snow Leopard) and some new versions of Microsoft Windows are compatible with this card.
