    Hey y'all. I just bought a new double din Navigation head unit for for car. One of the many media features is that it excepts a micro SD card. What I would like to be able to do is create a micro SD card from my Mac. What will be on the card are photos. I am not sure if you can put music or movies on it but I have an 80G ipod that I use for that. If I can put photos and images on it I can have them on the screen for the start up screen or as back drops. It would be great to have a photo of my wife and young children on there or a entire library of photos.
    Anyway, I am not very computer savvy and need some guidance on how to do this.

    Thanks

    A micro SD card is a physical product. Your Mac is not a factory. If you mean you want to disassemble your Mac and create a micro SD card from the components I would advise you not to do that as it will significantly devalue your computer.

    It will make much more economic sense to buy a new micro SD card, for which you will need a card reader that accepts rather than than excepts the format.

    You need a USB card reader the accepts your micro SD card. Plug it in then the SD card will look just like a disk drive. Drag any files you like to the card. Eject the card and you are done.

    I'm not sure which Mac you have but if has a spot for a regular SD card than this product will work. It is a micro-sd card with an adapter so you can use it in a regular SD port.

    If your Mac doesn't have a SD port on it than you should probably get a SD card reader that connects using USB. Newegg has a couple that should work.
