A memory card is a form of flash memory that is used in a range of electronic devices such as a digital cameras or video game console. The memory card stores data, images, music, saved games or other computer files.

The amount of data memory cards can store depends on the capacity of the card. As of 2018, some of the largest memory cards can now store 512 gigabytes of data. As the technology improves, larger capacity cards are expected.

There are many different types of memory cards, for example Secure Digital (SD) or CompactFlash (CF), but the majority are SD cards or MicroSD.
