Frequently Asked Questions

How do I use this tool?

The memory finder uses four fields to find you compatible memory or storage options. These are:

  1. The category of your device (Camcorder, Desktop, Camera, Smartphone, etc.)
  2. Your device’s manufacturer (Kodak, ASUS, Canon, etc.)
  3. The manufacturer’s product line
  4. The device’s model

All of this can easily be found either on the device itself or within the manual. If you have trouble finding your owner’s manual, be sure to check the manufacturer’s website for information about the product.

What brands are available?

Your purchase options depend on what you are looking for (SD card, RAM, etc.). Newegg carries a wide assortment of options from brands like ASUS, Samsung, Sandisk, G-Skill, and many more.

How much memory (RAM) do I need for my computer?

Your RAM needs will differ depending on what you plan to do with your computer. Our Newegg Insider experts recommend a minimum of 4GB of RAM. 8GB of RAM will cover most users’ needs, and if you are a power user, 16GB is a good amount ( Source).

What size SD card should I buy?

SD cards come in three sizes: Standard or Full SD, Mini SD, and Micro SD. Check your owner’s manual to make sure. If you are unsure about the right size SD card, you can always look at your device’s memory slot because, a lot of times, these slots will have the memory card size imprinted on the device next to them.
