    Hello,

    I want to extend my macbook storage by a 128GB SDXC card but the problem with macbook is that the card exceeds the body and can't let it permanently on it, so i was thinking if it's possible to connect the sd card internally on macbook with some wires (9 for sd card) without welding so I can change it if I want without loosing warranty.

    If someone think thats it possible and can help with some information it will be very cool.

    Thanks a lot

    Maybe the NiftyDrive can help?

    And why was your thread titled "samy 1 Asked 6 minutes ago Can we install an sdxc card inside a MacBook Pro?"? Did you put that "samy 1 Asked 6 minutes ago" in there?

    I can't use nifty for 2 reason:
    There is no nifty minidrive for my macbook.
    128GB microSD don't exist in stores Know.

    For the title it was just an error :)

    Thanks for helping

    You might be able to modify a 128GB SDXC card so it'll fit without sticking out. There is a chance you could damage the SDXC card while modifying it and you would definitely void your warranty on the card.

    I don't know if the sd card is completely or just half full with memory and electronic circuit and even if I do that it will exceeds, and also I can't risk of damaging a +100€ SDcard

    But you are willing to risk damaging a 1700€ notebook.

    128GB SDXC, even the fastest UHS-I class, peaks at 80 MB/sec for read and 40 MB/sec for write (vs. 400 MB/sec. for internal flash storage). I think you are better off saving money for OWC's flash storage replacement.
