Secure Digital

Supported by the SD Card Association (SDA), this compact type of memory card allows for fast data transfer and has built-in security functions to facilitate the secure exchange of content and includes copyright (music) protection which makes them more expensive than the similar MultiMediaCards which we will discuss next. SD cards have a small write-protection switch on the side, similar to what floppy disks have.
