    My sd card slot not working and despite sending it back to nintendo have ignored repairing it.
    Is there a way to do hacks with maybe a hard drive?

    Maybe try to find someone to do an unlicensed repair. Could be something simple to fix?

    Tell them you're paying for their services and now that you've paid shipping (there and back) they should be obligated to repair it. I'd honestly be pretty PO'd if I were in your shoes.

    if you're under warranty they have no choice but to repair your sd card slot, tell them that.

    correct me if i'm wrong, but cant you sue if they refuse to repair a device under warranty?
