Hey there folks, I was wondering if there was a special type of internal adapter to exist that would allow me to use 2, 64 GB micro sd cards in my phone. I'm looking for like a male micro sd card input-to-dual female micro sd card output adapter to connect to the female micro sd card input in the inside of my phone. It would use the same concept of the cable that is used to connect a desktop hard drive to the power source, then from the power source to the motherboard to make the drive primary or slave.... I think cuz I cant remember the name of that kind of cable?

Anyways, it would look kind of like this:
__________ _____
\_PHONE_/ __ \M-SD/
I I / \___/
I_I_______/
I _____
I____/M-SD\
\ ____ /

Why not just get a wireless hard drive? I have one and it's awesome.

I have the SanDisk 64 GB Micro SD Card. It's the Class 10, grey and red-colored one. Iv'e never had any issues with my card, I just want to be able to add another 64 GB card without having to lug around a hard drive. There was a guy who had a similar kind of cable adapter setup but it was a male micro sd card input-to-dual female (reguar-sized) sd card output and his S3 was able to recognize his total memory of 128 GB's. How expensive, how big in physical size, and how big in GB size are wireless HDD's these days??

They had something like that before, can't seem to find it, you can try to contact them.

The sandisk 128gb sd cards work with the s4, so this might be the easiest solution.

Yes, I realize the 128GB micro SD Card from SanDisk works with the Galaxy devices but I had initially asked the question way before the 128GB mSD came out this year. But still, if such a PCI type of card reader extender exists & it could let your galaxy device read (2) 128GB mSD cards.... WOW!

Ahh ha! I found it... kind of. It's basically this: http://www.aliexpress.com/item/2014-...889508912.html but has (2) strips coming off if it to tie into a set of dual micro SD TF adapters. This would allow you to input the male side of this adapter into the back of the phone/tablet, while you could potentially input (2) 128GB micro SD cards into each slot of the TF adapter. If I remember correctly, this guy's version years ago was similar to what I'm looking for but his had 2 TF slots each for 2 separate regular-sized SD cards and was able to read up to 128GB's or so with his. Im saying, take the same technology but add 2 TF adapters to input (2) 128GB micro SD cards instead and put the male end of the adapter into the female micro SD card slot into the back of the tablet/phone.

I bought a female USB to male micro USB adapter and I can plug a thumb drive into my phone. It works great for transferring files. Now I just need a splitter to power an external hard drive to see if my phone can read that too.

It also works with a wireless mouse and keyboard USB dongle.

Similar to this:

The only dual micro sd adapter I have ever seen was for the playstation portable. 2 cards into one memory stick adapter. I have used the full sd to micro sd with a 128gb card. Worked fine when formatted to fat 32.

Now that 128gb micro sdxc cards are availble, no need for that Macguyver stuff.

Now if you could find an microsd to otg cable adapter with multiple microsd slots, that would be a winner.

Yeah, now you're talking... with "the micro usb-to-multiple micro SD card slot!" Imagine if there was an OTG cable just like that with support for dual/triple micro SD cards each at 128GB's and that the OTG cable could read it on all Galaxy tablets & the S4 & S5's?! Ohhhh the insanity!! :what:
The iSheep would have heart-attacks!

I shall buy the first OTG triple micro SD card cable you make if you patent it and build it!
