Digital cameras', MP3 players, mobile telephones, digital videos have something in common. This equipment stores data on the internal memory or an external memory card. The digital images made by a digital camera are usually stored directly on a memory card. Most manufacturers prefer a certain type of memory card which is the reason why there is no standard in using one memory card. The digital images made by a digital camera can be stored in two ways: on the internal memory or on
a external changeable memory. Manufacturers use various memory cards or other storage media and sometimes they use a combination of storage media.
