N21 & SD (MMC ?) card

2020-01-03, 23:44 PM

Hi,

Purchase a used N21 and trying to use "SD/MMC" card reader slot (to expand my memory config)
And a standard SD card doesn't fit into the slot. Is this normal?
Are we only supposed to use MMC cards?
(which are impossible to find with capacity > 1Gb)

 

Is anyone using regular SD cards sucessfully in N21?

Solved! See the solution

Hi BkCali,

 

Welcome to the Community Forums.

 

Kindly provide the MTM of your machine, so I can look up the specifications for this.

Hope this helps.

Hi BkCali,

 

Thanks for the information.

 

The N21 uses a 2-in-1 card reader that supports SD/MMC in this case you would have to use the adapter that usually comes with the SD card to use it with this machine (photo below for reference)

 

 

Hope this helps.

Great, thank you!

ANY idea where to find one?

Hi BkCali,

 

I checked and it is possible that we do not provide these on the Official Lenovo website.

 

As an alternative since you are in the US, Sandisk SD cards are available on Amazon for $11 or more.

 

You can also head on over to your local tech store since SD cards are easily available and prices are not bad as well.

 

Hope this helps.

SD cards don’t fit natively, not without the un-available adapter, correct? 

At least they don’t on MY model!

Hi BkCali,

 

Yes the SD/MMC port requires you to use the adapter of the card.

 

Let me know if you have any questions.

Hi BkCali,

 

These adapters are usually included when you buy the MicroSD card.

 

You can also opt to choose the SDXC variant of the SD card which removes the need for an adapter (image below for reference)

 

Standard MicroSD Card with Adapter


 

SDXC Card.

 

 

 

Thanks.
