Memory Cards for Electronic Games: What is Backward Compatibility?
As products such as Electronic Games improve their specifications from one generation to the next, there are compatibility issues to consider. Devices that only accept the original SD (Secure Digital) card format will not be compatible with SDHC (Secure Digital High Capacity) or SDXC (Secure Digital ‘Xtra Capacity’) memory cards. However, both SDHC and SDXC memory cards are backwards compatible, enabling them to read previous format cards. A device like a Electronic Games is backwards compatible if products designed for the new standard can receive, read, view or play older or less powerful standards and formats.
