How to Store Your SD Memory Card Properly

An SD Memory Card is the most common type of memory card in use in compact cameras. It's a very durable little memory card but it still needs to be cared for properly. As long as you take care of the memory card it should be reliable and last you for a long time to come.

Storing in the Case

Normally you will receive a free plastic case to keep your SD card inside. This is a fairly simply way to keep your SD card safe and unharmed. By putting it inside the case you will minimize the risks of touching or damaging the contacts. These are not waterproof so you will need to carefully store the memory card.

If you lost your case then you might want to store your memory card inside your camera case to keep it safe and out of harms way.

Keeping Dry

Memory cards are delicate electrical components and it's important that they don't get damp or wet. If the cards get wet then they will probably stop working completely. You can try to salvage them by drying them out as quickly as possible.

Out of Harm's Way

SD Memory cards are very small and if you have small children then it's very easy to get them lost. You will find it much better if you store the memory cards out of harms way to ensure that they aren't damaged.
