Hi, Joshua. When shopping for an SD card, how do you tell if it’s a standard or simply a micro SD card with an Adapter?

Hi Chris. No it is not. Just make sure the next time you buy an sd card that you check what class it is. Whenever I buy a new card from amazon, I'm always told the class of the card whenever I look at the details page that gives me info about the sd card. Here's my opinion about using micro sd cards with the stream. I personally won't ever buy a micro sd card with an adaptor. The only time I did use a micro sd card with an adaptor in my stream, was many years ago when I bought one by mistake. I had a bad experience with a micro sd card where the adaptor of the micro sd card was going bad, and this card damaged the sd card slot on a booksense, that I bought. For the victor stream I'd recommend just get regular sd cards since the stream can use them.
Also, when you do need to get a new sd card or two for your stream, I highly recommend using www.amazon.com, and not www.newegg.com. I did a search on newegg, and wanted to compare their prices of sd cards to amazons, but when searching for sd cards on newegg, I found, that it was very difficult to find just the regular sd cards. They had loads of micro sd cards with adaptors, but not a lot of regular sd cards as amazon did. Have a great day all.
