Using Mico SD card instead of SD

Fri Jun 21, 2013 11:23 pm

I have a 32gb micro sd card by Samsung, that is plugged into a SD card by SanDisk - the SD card has a port for micro sd cards, allowing me to essentially convert the micro sd card into an sd card.

Doing so wouldn't cause any compatibility problems on the Pi, would it?

Not at all it's just a different form factor. Half mine are micro cards

SD and micro SD cards are essentially the same thing except for the physical layout of the metal pads.
