 Bigger Bigger  Smaller Smaller  Reset Reset

Has any of you connected a microSD card to an Atmega8, using just the Arduino IDE? Is it difficult or you just have to follow the Arduino tutorial, in the examples section?

Thank you!

Atmega8 supports SPI? Then I would think it could interface to uSD card if the mega8 has enough SRAM to support the fat16lib SD library.
You will need 3.3V power & logic level translation to avoid damaging the SD/uSD card.
