Because my new card cost $7.75, which is less than the $5.95+shipping with the adaptor.
Also, I used an adaptor with my previous card, which the Raspberry Pi managed to break. My old 8GB microSD card isn't even recognised by my laptop any more! Therefore I don't trust SD adaptors in the Pi.
Which brand adaptor did you use? I am curious because I am currently planning to buy a few of the Adafruit ones I linked to since they have a reputation for making quality parts.
As for cost $4.99 for a 2gb MicroSD and $5.95 for the Adafruit adaptor, both with free shipping, is only a couple dollars more and still leaves you with a warranty and a card you can use in other devices.
