Hello

I just got my MBP, and I really like they put the Sd card slot in...

I was just wondering if there are any other, maybe shorter types of sd cards - so you could slip in the card and leave it there, as ekstra storage - without it sticking out. It would be really nice for keeping copies of important docs etc.

Hope the answer is out there

SD cards are SUPER expensive to use as "extra storage".

Use an external drive, or a pen-stick. Yes they'll both stick out, but if you really want extra internal storage, you should upgrade your hard drive.
Anything up to 500GB can be relatively cheap.

A 16GB SD card goes for 50GBP, and you could probably find a 360GB external hard drive for about the same ....

edit:// I know it's probably not the answer you're looking for, but SD cards are standardised in size and shape, and it won't take any alternative forms of SD cards (ie microSD) without a converter

Waiting for the game that takes full advantage of a 124bit, 3.5GHz, 8-core, 64Gig-RAM system.

No sorry, it wasn't the answer I was looking for Actually it's not because I'm out of disk space, I just thought an Sd Card would be a nice "internal" backup solution.. for when your'e in school etc.

But thanks anyway

I know exactly what you mean. My old Dell tucked the SD card all the way in so it could be left all the time. I wish the MBP had the same feature. It would not have been hard to do IMO.

Unless they have an indent for your fingers to get into, most SD card readers I've seen let the card stick out just a bit so that you can remove the card.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

Or they could have made a system where you could click it out... like in a camera

which you can't do it it's flush with the casing and doesn't have a thumb dent.

Hello,
i have a Olympus camera and i wanted to download the photos taken into my MBP 13". when i tried to insert the SD card of the camera (Olympus XD picture card M 2GB,) it would not go in smoothly as it goes in the camera. i did not try to force it as i did not want to damage it. Am i doing anything wrong? is there a card writer required?

The card reader on the MBP is SD, so you will need some sort of adapter or USB reader to view your photos.

I agree, they have XD to SD card adapters that you just put the XD into and it makes it SD. That would be my first choice if I were you. I have to do this with my cellphone because it is XD and super small. Rather than buying a card reader this works better and cheaper.
