Part 3. What Are Multimedia Cards

Multimedia cards are portable storage devices that carry flash memory or files from one system to another. Siemens and SanDisk using Toshiba's NAND-based flash memory created these storage devices back in 1997. The newly created devices were small, could transfer large amounts of data and had better interface. The first multimedia cards were used for transporting and sharing of music files, pictures and the rare videos. MMC became a hot topic for debate when music labels felt that the devices would encourage piracy and easy sharing of music without paying for it. It is a stark change to what has happen over the years.
