What To Do Before Buying a Memory Card

What To Do Before Buying a Memory Card?

There is no memory card option for entertainment and memory storage including pictures, songs, videos. Understanding the need for fake memory cards in the market, it is necessary to buy the original memory card. This article is about these important aspects of memory cards. Memory card A memory card is a type of semiconductor-based secondary memory. It is a type of memory that is currently used in mobile devices such as mobile phones, tablets, cameras, televisions, media players, etc. SD card

SD Card

The card that is most used now is the SD card. SD cards are now being used in everything from mobile phones to various players and digital cameras. SD cards are even being used in today’s digital SLR cameras, replacing the CF card. The main reason why SD cards are so popular is because of their low form factor. At the same time, its availability is also considered. SD cards are of three form factors. These are – SD card, mini SD card and micro SD card. Micro SD card is the smallest of these cards. However, anyone can meet the needs of the SD card by using the adapter with the micro SD card. This means that if someone’s device has SD card support and if he has a micro SD card, then it is possible to run the device using only an adapter without buying a new SD card. The same goes for mini SD cards.

MMC card

Usually, this card was used more in mobile phones before. This card is especially popular on Nokia mobile phones. At one time this card was used instead of an SD card as it was cheaper than an SD card. But now the use of this card has become limited. This card could be used as a change in the slot of the SD card. However, in that case, you have to use the second generation card of MMC card.


Micro SD cards often have SDHS or SDXC written on them. It reveals a different format, which explains exactly what amount of data it is capable of storing. The full version of SDHC is Secure Digital High Capacity which is capable of storing data up to 32 GB and the full version of SDXC is Secure Digital Extended Capacity which is capable of storing data up to 64 GB and above.

Memory card Class

You also need to know about the speed category to know which card will be the best. In terms of speed, memory cards are generally divided into 8 sections, Class 2, Class 4, Class 8, Class 10, UHS 1 and UHS 3, respectively. The SD card’s class speed rate is numbered round. The higher the card speed rating, the faster it can read and write files. Just as a Class 8 card can support speeds of up to 8 megabytes per second, so a Class 10 memory card can move at 10 megabytes per second. But on a UHS standard card, also called Ultra High Speed, it can move up to 320 megabytes per second.

No memory suitable

Users can purchase any card from Class 4 onwards if they want to use a memory card to store data stores such as movies, songs and pictures. This will not be a problem. Now if one wants to do HD recording and save it on that recording card then one should buy at least class 8 memory. Otherwise many frames may not be saved while recording. Again the video may get stuck while playing or the video and sound may be back and forth. So you should use a minimum class 8 card for HD quality video recording and watching. Then if one wants to do 4K video recording and also capture photos at the same time, one should buy at least one UHS 1 memory. The same rules apply to the use of SD cards in smartphones as well as cameras. Again, many people use all the apps on their phones by moving to the memory card. In this case at least one class 10 memory card is required.

Easily recognize the original memory card

The simplest rule for recognizing an original memory card is to engrave the brand name on it. Transcend, Sandisk, Aperture, Kingston brand cards are more in the market. Most of the Samsung brand memory is found, but it is doubtful whether it is genuine. Some memory cards come with a one year warranty. So it is better to buy this kind of memory card. However, it is better to check the brand and buy it.

Perfect memory within budget

Considering the speed and storage, the user needs to know which memory is required first. Then you have to buy memory according to the budget. Currently, 4 GB memory cards are available in the market from Rs 200 to Rs 250. 8 GB memory is available at Rs 250 to Rs 400, 16 GB memory card at Rs 400 to Rs 600, 32 GB memory at Rs 800 to Rs 1000 and 64 GB memory at Rs 1,200 to Rs 2,000. However, 128 GB memory cards of some low-quality brands are also available in the market now. However, there are questions about the quality of these.

Recover lost files

If the memory card is suddenly opened or disconnected in any way while transferring data, it may be damaged and become useless. Sometimes the memory card with the necessary data can become unusable due to the virus. Although many useless memory cards can be activated, data recovery software has to be used to fix completely damaged and externally damaged cards. Most of the time it is possible but it cannot be said that it is possible to get back 100% of the data.
Remember, nothing else can be deleted from the memory card you want to recover or no new files can be kept. This is usually the case if the memory card is not replaced with something new because once you add something new, the previous data will no longer be in the empty memory of the card. Recova is the most effective software for recovering deleted photos or data from memory cards. You need to download the software from the link http://www.piriform.com/recuva . Once downloaded, you need to install the software. Once installed, the software needs to be turned on. Then a list will appear. This list will contain pictures, data, songs, movies, etc. You have to select the type of file you want to recover from here. Multiple format files can be selected. Then you have to click on the next button below to go to the next step. Now you have to select the folder in which the deleted files were. Now if you click Next, the software will start scanning the specified folder of the memory card. Once the files are scanned, click on the ‘Recover’ button to show the location to be saved. Now we have to wait. Because the files will take a long time to recover.
