Memory cards, or SD cards, come in several different sizes and are used by a wide variety of devices. You might have a memory card in your cellphone, digital camera, camcorder or MP3 player. Most computers designed for use with Windows 7 have a memory card slot you can use to access the card. If yours does not, you can get an adapter that will allow a connection between the memory card and a different input method on your computer, such as USB.
Things You'll Need
- Memory card reader or adapter
Insert the memory card into your computer's memory card reader or an adapter. The first time you do this for the card, it will take a few moments as Windows 7 will read the card information. An "AutoPlay" menu will pop up with options for accessing the card. Choose the one you want. If you do not see the menu, proceed with these instructions.
Click the Windows "Start" button.
Double-click the memory card's icon to open the folders on it in Windows Explorer.
Tips & Warnings
- Many mobile devices have a way to connect the device to your Windows 7 computer. After connecting the device, you can access the memory card while it is still in the device. Check the manual for your device for details.
