I have an Asus laptop that comes with an SD card reader, I have two 64 GB Ultra Micro SD cards.

Is there an SD Card adapter that can take two Micro SD cards? I know there is a Pro version, but that's not what I'm looking for.

Or is this something I may have to find a way to make?

A "normal" USB SD card reader is not an option? –  Oliver Salzburg Apr 22 '13 at 11:52
    
No, only because the work I do the laptop needs to be portable, without anything sticking out. Because the environment I'm in now, if I knock something over it can be well, deadly. Hence why the Pro won't work, it extrudes too far out to be allowed. –  Matt Ridge Apr 22 '13 at 12:31

There are hyper-small USB adapters, that maybe can suit your needs. The pictures should be pretty self-explanatory, but just in case, the MicroSD card is inserted directly in the USB plug, saving a lot of space.

These extend very little outside the chassis of your machine, so even if it's not exactly what you are looking for, maybe is a solution that you might consider. You can couple two of these, or one of these and a normal SD adapter.

I have one of these, I was hoping for one that seated two. I was Hoping to RAID them together to make a high speed 128GB card. –  Matt Ridge Apr 22 '13 at 13:14
    
To be honest I've never seen a dual adapter like the one you are looking for, and I'm not in electronics and hardware customization. And apparently nobody thought about producing a simple SD-card sized adapter with two slots for MicroSD. –  Sekhemty Apr 22 '13 at 13:24
    
Well, I may try. I'm no electrical engineer either, but I see a need for one. –  Matt Ridge Apr 22 '13 at 13:29
    
Anyway, usually with the proper tools and a good tutorial this kind of tasks are not very difficult. Have a good work! –  Sekhemty Apr 22 '13 at 13:37
