This board is a unique board recommended by a SparkFun customer. When playing with SD, you sometimes need to view what the SPI traffic is doing, whether for hacking or debugging. The SD Sniffer allows you to hook up an external device, such as a logic analyzer or microcontroller, to view what signals are being passed back and forth. Insert one side into a regular SD socket and a SD card into the SD holder, simple as that.

This skill defines how difficult the soldering is on a particular product. It might be a couple simple solder joints, or require special reflow tools.
Skill Level: Noob - Some basic soldering is required, but it is limited to a just a few pins, basic through-hole soldering, and couple (if any) polarized components. A basic soldering iron is all you should need.

I used it together with a selea logic analyzer to fix a problem using SPI. It was very easy to do. Worked without a glitch.
Makes it easy to debug. I am glad I ordered two sniffers. Insert/removal is fragile. One stopped locking the card after couple of inserts/removals. Not sure if it was because I am using a wifi card which is way more heavy than an SD Card. I also ordered micro SD card sniffer. It is working well.
Fill out a return ticket for the unit with the broken SD card latch and we may be able to get you a replacement: https://www.sparkfun.com/returns
