Adapter xD/SD


xD part
An xD cards is a standard NAND flash device, but engineered in a different type package.
The adaptor allows us to have access to memory at its lowest level.

SD part
Works through classic/basic SD interface arrangement.
We can read the SD card differently and avoid bad blocks, which usually would hang Microsoft Windows.

When you put SD card in regular card reader (like end users use at home or work), below is a list of possible outcomes.
1. Microsoft Windows hangs -> 90% of these situations the Soft-Center SD adapter will help.
2. Don't see disk/storage device in Image Explorer at all -> Only 1% of situations Soft-Center SD adapter helps
3. Open disk with Image Explorer, all sectors = CRC Error -> Remove NAND Chip & Attempt Direct NAND Recovery

1. Setup xD / SD adapter
2. Insert card
3. Attach USB connector
4. Read NAND_Reader.exe as usual
