    heres the deal...

    I want to download pics from an SD card right onto my HTC Incredible. I have an SD reader and the female end is for a miniUSB, my phone takes a microUSB... therefore, I need a cable with one end miniUSB and the other microUSB.

    1. is this cord out there?
    2. if so, is that transfer possible?



    thx

    What you're proposing isn't possible. You can't just hook up any USB device to another device and it work. One has to be designed to be the host (like your PC is always the USB host). All other devices plug up to a host and the host controls the data bus. Neither your Incredible nor your SD card reader are designed to be a host, so neither would communicate with each other.

    Just copy the pics to a PC then copy them into the Incredible.

    Something designed to have something plug up to it and read things from it. Computers, some TVs and home receiver systems, car stereos that feature a USB port, etc.
