Tethered SD card

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?

SD-card to Wii/PC Switch. Any better solutions than 4 DPDT and 1 SPDT Switches?

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 :)

Reading 12 rows of data from an SD card every minute and storing the data into Arrays using Gboard pro Arduino

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

Does anybody know how to make a SD-card only type mp3 player with a line out? Answered

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)

SD card drive won't hold my SD card in my camera. Any suggestions/help?

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!

Can an SD card port provide USB power?

I have a device that's designed to get its power from a USB port, but where it mounts there is no port available.  However, there is a fullsize SD card slot.  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?

Mod for mini DV camcorder to write to SD card.

I have an old top of the range Panasonic mini DV(tapes) camcorder which cost me 2.5g 5 years ago. The tapes are expensive and it has been playing up with some brands of tapes. I dusted it off and was experimenting with it when I discovered it has an SDcard slot. I think this is only for 'still' shots and whe n I selected 'card' and tried to video it says change to tape to record. I wonder if there is any way of modding it to record video straight onto the SDcard. With the size and quality of SDcards improving I thought this would be better and more reliable than the tape mechanism. It seems such a waste to have it sitting around not being able to use it. I have already worked out a battery pack with 6 AAs to replace the dying lithium battery.

Something like the image, but the difference would be this: The cassette would be in place of a floppy disk, and the audio jack would be in place of a more hefty storage device, whether it be a usb or sd. I intend to use this so that i can use a camera that records to floppy, but use sd storage, if that makes sense

Accessing SD memory on data logging shield

Hey again, I finished my first project recently and was looking to expand on the design. It's an EMF detector (https://www.instructables.com/community/First-project-completednow-lets-expand-it/) and it's working great. Now, I want to add memory and a USB charger to turn it into an self-contained EMF data logger. The project looks easy enough, but I have a question that I wasn't able to find answers for. Here's the question: Can the memory installed on the data logging shield be accessed through the Arduino USB port? On my cell phone, whenever I plug the USB into my laptop, it connects as a drive. I'd like to do the same thing with the EMF data logger. Or will I just have to remove the SD card every time I want to extract data from it? Thanks LorienD
