Question by William MB | last reply
I would like to tether a cheap digital camera. The problem is I don't know which one - I'm watching on ebay for a madly cheap camera (I've seen loads go where they're fine except for a stuck zoom - like 6Mp cameras for about £3 - when every time I've looked at a stuck zoom a bit of twisting and brute force will get it back in to the body - and the project I want it for doesn't need to zoom!). Problem with doing this is that by the time I've found a cheap camera with 2 minutes to go, it tends to take a lot longer to that to figure out whether you can tether it. And even then you're normally limited to the provided software, I'd like to be able to write my own. So - can anyone think of a way to take an old SD card and somehow - I don't know - solder wires to the insides of the contacts maybe - and then somehow get those wires into another old SD card and plug it into the card-reader attached to a PC so that you can read the images without unplugging the "card" from the camera?

Hi all, I am wanting to start a project to make an e-reader. It will comprise text files on an SD card which are then read and displayed onto an LCD screen plus the ability to scroll up/down (and/or left/right). I plan on using a DOGM204 lcd module and probably a pro micro (sparkfun). I would really appreciate any help as to how I could make this.

If so where can I buy one? I thought this was really interesting, I was excited to put one to use in the ipod mini hackAlso anyone think it is possible to hack the mini this with sd cards or micro sd cards (I have seen sd to cf converters but the 16 gb cf card is still cheper than a 16 sd card to use with the converter, that's if the converter is even compatible with the ipod) Do sd to cf converters exist that support 2 sd (or micro sd) cards?just looking to bounce some ideas around ,Dan

Frenzy's instructable on USB dead drops got me inspired, but I don't want to set up just one! I'd like to set up several around my little town here, and I don't want to break the bank doing it. Does anyone know where to buy maybe six to twelve thumb drives or micro SD cards for super cheap? I don't need anything particularly fancy, I'm sure 512mb or 1gb would be plenty of space. I found some stuff on ebay but I'd still be paying around $35 for 10, and I'd like to get that down around $2 each or less. What do you think? Pipe dream or do you have some ideas?
Question by depotdevoid | last reply
I've created a quick schematic of the switch I want to make: http://img195.imageshack.us/img195/7481/sdcardmanualswitch.png Basically I want to make a switch with 1 input(SD-card) and 2 outputs(Wii and PC), which makes it possible for me to connect the sd-card to my PC, so I'll be able to transfer data to it. Then, by using the switch, connect the SD-card to my Wii. From what I understand the input (SD-card) has 9 pins and 2 outputs(Wii & PC) have18 pins, which means it would be possible to connect 4DPDT switches and 1SPDT switch. But that just seems like an awful amount of buttons, just to switch from PC to Wii. So my question is: is there a more suitable solution for a switch? Ps. I excuse my poor English, It aint my first language :)

Question | last reply
Hi, I am working on a project that measures temperature and current, store it on an SD card (csv file) and send them to a website. I decided to sample the signals every 5 seconds and store the data to the SD card using time interrupt (TimerOne). My plan is to sample and store data for 1 minute and then read the sampled data from the SD card and store them into 2 Arrays i.e Array1 for temperature and Array2 for the current and send the data to the website. Thus far I have managed to sample and store the data using the time interrupt. I also included a count variable in the interrupt subroutine so as to know how many times the interrupt has occurred. Since I am sampling and storing the data every 5 seconds and I want to read the data stored in the SD card every minute, so when count = 12 I would like to read the last 12 readings (24 since its current and temperature ) and store them into 2 Arrays. The problem I have is that I do not know how to read the data from the SD card and store them into two Arrays and would like your help. Note: the Reading of the SD card will not be in the Interrupt subroutine Any help or suggestions will be highly appreciated. Thanks Muundu

With games getting bigger and bigger with every new release and limited storage capacity some of you might think the same: Why not add a SD card to my Nexus 7? The lates Lollipop update basically killed the normal USB OTG funstions, so if you do want to use a USB stick or external SD card in a reader you will need a powered USB OTG cable. I am not sure if this was intentionally or another bug but it is damn annoying. After openeing my tablet to check m options I realised my main problem is space. Even adding a micro SD with a similar small reader is a major pain as there simply is no empty space left inside. So I was hoping someone here might be interested in such a mod and contribute with good ideas during the build and maybe even copy the mod (if I manage it) to confirm it is in fact doable. My findings so far: A custom rom is a must have due to the OTG limits of the original. It might be enough to just find a suitable kernel but so far I settled for the Team UB Lollipop release. It offers some mods based on Cyanogen and claims full OTG support. Other roms also added support for external WiFi and TV dongles, so there is room to play. As said space is a problem I am working on ;) For an internal mod and due to the lack of physical support on the mainboard the only option is to use the standrad USB port for this mod. This means SD, reader and OTG mod must fit inside somehow. It also means some sort of physical switch is required for the times when you need full power during the recharge - although I have to test if this still works with an external SD while the tablet is switched off. In that case I could accept 500mA charge during normal use and 1A or more when the tablet is switched off. The rom should support fast USB charge but I am not sure if this olaso works in host mode. It is possible to use some extra app and scripts to make good use of such a mod. Not only can you use the SD for music, movies and other demanding files but with scripting you can also move the big data files from games to the external storage. Works similar to the apps you can get for devices with a real SD card, where you often find the "Move to SD" option in the app manager. This mod will not be for the faint hearted as it requires serious soldering skills on these tiny components, so if you only know how to solder copper pipes you might need some training on old electronics first ;) Let me know what you think and if you would be interested in such a mod as otherwise I won't bother taking pics during the progress. And without pics there will be no Instructable follwing ;)

I'm looking for a way to play mp3's on any audio equipment that accepts aux in or something. Doesn't need to have anything flashy, just a little box, bulletproof,good sound quality, that can handle SD cards (4GB support should be enough, but more is always better). Of course it will also need the basic buttons on it for play/stop/prev/next. How hard/expensive is this to make and how to do the actual mp3 to audio conversion? (I have no experience with chip programming)

I have an (almost) brand new camera and one day when I put my SD card into it and it wouldn't stay in. Here's what's going on: 1. I take my SD card 2. I put it in the slot 3. I push it in and it pops out again. It's supposed to make a click and stay in until I push it again. I can still use the camera, but the SD card springs out whenever I open the hatch that it's stored in. If it is unfixable, I can (hopefully) still exchange it for another one or, if it is fixable, I can take it to my local camera shop. Is there a DIY option to fix this that isn't too advanced? Some info: It is a canon sx520hs It is less than a year old I think it is a problem with the mechanism that makes it lock in. Thanks in advance!

From what I can tell it *appears* I could rig up an adapter that delivers power to the device through that card slot, but am I reading this correctly? And more importantly, would this deliver as much power as a USB port? Thanks!
