Several types of memory cards and flash drives.

Alternatively called T-Flash, TF, or TransFlash, MicroSD is an 11 by 15 mm removable flash memory card first developed by SanDisk and approved as a standard on July 13, 2005. The MicroSD is most used with cell phones and dash cams and are the smallest removable flash memory card specification.

Some laptops feature a MicroSD slot built into the front or side edge, allowing you to easily move pictures or other files on and off of them. If your laptop does not have a MicroSD slot, or you're using a desktop computer, you can use a media card reader. This device adapts your MicroSD card to the appropriate size for different slots.
