1 GB MicroSD Card To Store Video/Audio on the Samsung Blackjack (AT&T Wireless/Cingular)
In our last post, we discussed how to convert regular video files to 3GP format so that you are able to watch them on your Samsung Blackjack. But the onboard memory can fill quite quickly with applications, photos, etc. One really big suggestion is to install anything and everything on the microSD Card if possible. When installing new applications, you typically have a choice to install it on the “DEVICE” or “STORAGE CARD”.
If you take this 2nd route of loading data onto you storage card when possible, you probably should invest the couple of bucks needed for a larger micro SD memory card. Already, 1GB MicroSD Cards can be found for only $3 (and that’s with free shipping offers included!)!?!?!? At these prices, there’s NO EXCUSES for not getting one right now, even as a back-up! (The microSD Card is SO SMALL that if it pops out, you’ll never find it on the floor or street…which I learned the hard way, when my 2.5 yr old toddler figured out how to open the slot and pop out the microSD card himself when I wasn’t looking! So much for handing over the Blackjack to watch cartoons unattended…).
What I do is keep one in my blackjack and another in my USB card reader in my desktop computer (almost all micro SD memory cards are sold with a standard SD Adapter — which basically is an shell the side of a standard SD card and fits into any regular SD card device like a card reader). Thus, when I’m ready to go on a trip or a full day in the city for example, I’ll load up the microSD card in my card reader with new audio and video files to take with me, and simply swap them out. And when I’m traveling, I’ll have tons of stuff for all that dead-time when waiting in lines, for the train, plane, taxi, or my next appointment.
