multi card reader SDHC support

multi card reader SDHC support

On most of my desktop and laptop computers I have various memory card readers but they all seem to be missing the one I need – this been Micro SD. While out today in one of these cheap shops where everything is £1 ($1.50) – I Spotted this all-in-one reader. My reasoning here is that you cannot go really too wrong given the price, I knew it would work as in picking up the device so I took the plunge and bought the thing.

Construction

The top of the device was literally falling off and had I not broke out the super glue – it would have been lost in next to no time. I choose the colour as per the picture, there was a bright pink model which was not to my taste. The device consists of a the top part (clear plastic as you can see) with one small circuit board inside and the USB Lead is underneath.

In operation

We can see it supports:

Support SD, MMC, RS-MMC, Mini SD, T-Flash, MS / MS PRO, MS Duo / MS PRO Duo, M2

Mini  SD, T-Flash, M2 use without adapter

Underneath we have the USB Lead which folds into the device and once out – only has about one inch worth of lead, no USB Extension lead is supplied.

Judging by the size, maybe they assume you will attach this to your keyring – while this is possible, it is not something I need to have on my person all the time.

In Use

This thing does what it says on the packet and it perfect for me to use both at home and at work. You cannot really go too far wrong with the price and do not expect it to last too long in heavy use. This allows me to quickly move files onto my Micro SD Card on my Android phone.

    Ha! That’s great for the price!

    Why don’t you SSH into the phone? I haven’t tried with mine, but I think you can.

    Actually SSH into the phone is a great idea – let me look into that. I can plug the USB lead (supplied) on my phone and it comes up as a device but this saves me from using that. As I say though, Shoddy build quality and very cheap indeed – you do get what you pay for :)

    Yep, but hey it works. Just ran a quick Google and came up with this project on Google Code. It in essence makes the phone an FTP server. Only drawback from what I can see is that the phone and computer have to be on the same WiFi network. I’m gonna test it and write a blog post about it at the end of the day.

    What I would like is VNC Server for the phone so I could control the phone on my computer instead of typing away on the phone.

    Already researched it ;) Got a huge bookmark bar of to-do things with my Android. Check here. You just need to upload a modified ROM.
