Create Your Own External Card Reader from Old Desktop Parts

I have this broken desktop computer that was useless for quite some time. So I came up to this idea that I will use it again and make a portable external USB device, a external card reader.

This USB device is much faster as compared to those that are available on the market today. Little modification is needed and it’s good to go.

  • Old cellphone charger chord- we will only use the USB socket.
  • Soldering Gun & lead.
