As you could probably be thinking, I need to connect an SD card to Arduino Severino. The thing is Severino has no 3.3v pin, so I need to transform that 5v power to 3.3v for the SD card. Can anyone tell me wich materials shoud I buy and how do I connect them?

Thank you for your help.

Then you should by a SD shield that does the level conversion.

Change the 5V regulator to a 3.3V regulator, the crystal to 8 MHz, reload the bootloader to match.

I bought a hex buffer for the i/o pins and use a 3.3v regulator on the 5v out pin and plug the regulated 3.3v into the the VDD of the sd card this way you will not have to desolder any parts and you don't have to run your arudino at half speed.

Interesting. Plugging a SD card was for logging an access control, but it seems that reading users in an SD card could be very slow (I've been reading about that topic.) But it would be nice to know how to get 3.3v. Can you provide a schematic and values? As I said before, I have no knowladge of electronics. I'm learning.

I have a picutre:Note this also interfaces with a spi ram chip I am using 2 chip select pins (one for sd card and one for ram chip) to select ram chip or sd card.

and an extremely hard to follow drawing
Code:
Sd card to arudiono
I am using the arduino uno r3 it should be the same on all revisions though
