Introduction: Memory Card Shield for Arduino UNO

Picture of Memory Card Shield for Arduino UNO

This type of shield is originally cost up to 4000 BDT (in Bangladesh), which is around 39 USD (without shipping) . But by this way you can make your own microSD card shield only at 120 BDT ($1.6 USD). Don't surprise, because it don't support Ethernet connection. You can use this only as DATA-LOGGER support for ARDUINO. Lets do it..

Step 1: Parts That You Need...

1. 1 X useless memory card reader or SD card socket.
2. 1 X SD Card (or microSD card with Adopter).
3. 3 X 4.7kohms Register.
4. 3 X 10kohms Register.
5. Some male connectors rails.

Didn't work for me. I went out and bought one that also has a LAN connection. Great project tho thanks.

The problem is in PIN10. Try changing it to PIN4. & it must work....

I read that in the comments below, and tried that but still didn't work. Thanks for the reply.

Arduino says Card "initialisation failed" it actually did succeed once but then when I tried again it failed for many more times, what would have gone wrong here, I checked everything is wired correctly.

Try changing the pin 10 to pin 4. i hope it will work for you.

Thanks. final got it working.

Good Job.............

Rahul Mitra (author)Albertle2013-12-12

Yes.... this is possible. i tried with 16x2 lcd display
