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.

Step 2: Preparing Your Circuit...

Step 3: Finally

<p>Works like a charm! I'm made it into a PCB, Might do a YT video on it, thanks again!</p>
<p>Good Job</p>
<p>how to program the arduino to read media like songs and play it on speaker ?! <br>please need help</p>
<p>Didn't work for me. I went out and bought one that also has a LAN connection. Great project tho thanks.</p>
<p>The problem is in PIN10. Try changing it to PIN4. &amp; it must work....</p>
<p>I read that in the comments below, and tried that but still didn't work. Thanks for the reply.</p>
Arduino says Card &quot;initialisation failed&quot; 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. <br> thanks
Try changing the pin 10 to pin 4. i hope it will work for you.
Thanks. final got it working.
Good Job............. <br>
Great advice thanks. <br> <br>Is it possible to read the data from the SD card to display on an LCD screen?
Yes.... this is possible. i tried with 16x2 lcd display
Good post. I wish only the photographs were crispier.
Sorry for that. Actually my mobile camera is not good enough.....
