Walking my dog early in the morning gives me some excellent opportunities to score the stuff some see as rubbish and take it home for projects.
I have scored loads of good stuff and this was no exception. I’ve wanted an sd card reader for a while as the Linux book doesn’t have one and I am constantly thinking “ill just buy one”
The computer this came on was stripped but a few goodies remained. Essentially it’s as simple as cutting the motherboard pin connectors and using an old USB cable to attach to the wiring for the reader.
It fired straight up on my machine with no issues. Apart from changing the red heat shrink it just goes to show how much you can get from just a simple walk around the block!
Until next time, Happy tinkering!
