Question Mobidapter: MicroSD to USB adapter

This adapter can be used as an alternative for the USB-Host functionality but I was afraid the microSD part wouldn't be long enough to fit the HD2 MicroSD slot.

So I managed to get its microSD part length according to expansys' product image:

The length is only 17mm but the minimum length to get it work with HD2 must be 20.5mm. I used a calliper to measure that.

So, I was hopping anyone would come up with an idea to use this adapter with HTC HD2.

Please notice that the adapter price is 29 excluding the shipping cost so I prefer not take the risk to disassemble it for extending the microSD length if it isn't possible.

Thanks in advance,

What is it for, are you trying to use a USB stick instead of your micro SD card?

If so, why?

a portable HDD caddy LOL

shame though, the MicroSD port wont put out 5v 500mah

although its probably enough to power a CF/MSproDUO/XD type of reader for example to clear some space on your digital camera card without deleting images (or simply to view them on a bigger screen )

Sometimes you really need work on a USB stick but you don't have access to PC.
Or as quasi_mojo said you can connect a card reader to your device...

Will I be able to play some mp3's directly from a pendrive with this device? Because I have about 25GB of music and I can't afford a 32GB microSD card.

i THINK (i could be wrong...) a pendrive would require more nearer 5volts to work...

opened up my SDcard reader a few days ago, plugged into usb with a 2gb sdcard...it was pulling 3.4-3.6volts while accessing the card, which is damn close to the MicroSD maximum voltage...

Default Nook Color option

It would be cool if someone could make a Micro SD socket adaptor (with a usb converter cable) that would allow the ability to connect to and drive a scanner and a printer. One would need the appropriate app designed for it too. A nice option for the Nook Color.

Hi there,
I had the mobydapter here, but it didn't function with my galaxy 7 inch tab. Pity I had to send it back. No function beside beeing very unstable by nearly dropping out of my tab. Oh I forgot it was blinking. ;)
