Micro SD extension cable?
I like to make periodic backups of my mirror’s Micro SD card, but it’s a real pain in the butt to have to take the whole mirror down from the wall each time to do so.
I’m thinking of using this to route the Micro SD slot out the side of the frame. Has anyone used one of these? Are there any gotchas i should be aware of?
@j.e.f.f I don’t know about that, but i’ve heard booting from usb is available, but not sure.
@Sean I did a bit of digging on that and there are two ways to boot from USB: One which requires an SD card with the boot partition on it before handing off to the USB storage – which still leaves me with the same issue – or a second way which involves a permanent change to the One Time Programmable memory, which would mean I could never boot from the SD card again even if I wanted to.
Maybe I’ll just buy the extension and give it a shot. It’s an inexpensive experiment.
So I went ahead and ordered one off of Amazon, and I’m happy to report it works just like I had hoped. Now I don’t have to pull the mirror off the wall anymore any time I want to make a backup of my SD card!
