    "Most of the cameras don't support "micro SD cards", instead, they support "SD cards", but if you got a camera, you know that already. The thing is, the card itself (especially micro sd card) is not a solution when you want to transfer pictures to your computer simply because Personal Computers (excluding laptops) don't have SD card slots. The item you need for that procedure is a USB card reader and not a card itself, let alone an unsupported micro SD one."
