More and more these days, users of portable electronic devices (games consoles, mobile phones,  gps  ipods mp3s ) are storing information (data-files) on portable memory sources.( memory cards)

One of the most common and popular at the moment is the microSD

SanDisk,and Kingston are the most poular and reliable, Sandisk were the primary mafacture of thes disk which lends the SD to the name. The other part of the name comes from the tiny size of the card.

SanDisk originally manufactured the  Standard SD CARD, which was twice the size of microSD card. Then came the miniSD card, which was a bit smaller. Finally came the microSD card, the smallest of them all.

The microSD card is about a quarter of the size of a standard SD card, but it can still be used with devices that have SD card slots by using a special adapter.(micro sd reader)
