Hi, I'm Ben from the Cellphone Broker in San Jose, California. Today, I'm going to show you how to save files to your micro SD memory card. Micro SD is the smallest memory card available on the market right now. This particular one is 512 megabytes, but these cards are now made up into 16 gigabytes. 16 gigabytes is the largest available right now. Traditionally, they'll include a small adapter, which is the regular-sized SD card. You can then slide the small card into this one and then slide this into your computer if your computer has a regular size SD slot. The other format, which is in the middle of these two, would be the mini SD. Mini SD is available in up to two gigabytes, and these are really not too popular anymore. Most people are going after the micro SD because that's what most phones these days support. So what you want to do is you want to take the micro SD, make sure it is inserted into the card slot. On this particular device, the card slot is right here on top, but on many devices, it can be find...found under the battery or on the side under a little door. Then you can power on the device. Make sure the device is turned off when you insert the card, otherwise the device will not recognize it immediately. So you can then go into menu. Go into your media gallery on this phone. Find some pictures and take that picture and select the menu key. Scroll down to switch storage device, and it's got two options here. It says phone, and it'll also say trans or T-flash. T-flash is the memory card that we just inserted, so we're going to move the check mark, which is now on the phone, onto the T-flash, the memory card. And I can then either take a picture or move the pictures that are already saved on the phone onto the memory card. Right now, it's just switched storage devices, which means every picture that I take right now or every ringtone that I download on the phone will be saved on the SD card instead of on the phone. So once you have the information saved on the micro SD card or the regular SD card, what you can then do is remove the SD card or the memory card from the device, insert it into another device, and then you will have that file be accessible on the second device that you insert the card into.
