What else does sd mean?
- The cards are known as “Secure Digital” because they have copyright protection built into them. Key revocation, which is a security feature that protects card data from being read by unauthorised devices, means the cards can be used only to access protected data. You can choose between secured or unsecure areas for both copyrighted as well as non-copyrighted data. Visit the SD Card Association for more information. (in Computer Dictionary)
