Your computer has a card reader and other ports/jacks that allow you
to connect peripheral devices to your computer. For instructions on
how to connect different external devices to the computer, read the
Memory card reader
Memory cards are used in a wide selection of digital
cameras, PDAs, MP3 players and mobile phones.
Inserting a memory card
1. Align the card so that the connector points towards the port, with the
connectors facing down.
2. Carefully slide the card into the port. If you find you need to use any
force to insert the card, try reorientating the card slightly.
3. Push the card until it clicks into place. A few millimetres of the card
will extend from beyond the slot.
If the card contains some files, the Windows Auto Play window may
appear (this depends on the contents of the card) and ask you if you
wish to use a program to access the contents of the card. Select an
option here if it is appropriate, otherwise select Cancel. If the card
contains no files, or unknown files, a window will open showing the
contents of the card.

Different types of SD cards cover different capacities, while using the
same overall design. SD cards contain up to 4 GB, SDHC cards
contain up to 32 GB, and SDXC cards can contain up to 2048 GB
