    You see, I have a SuperCard Lite Rumble (yes awesome I know [​IMG])
    I can insert my MicroSD easily. Taking it out is the problem. I bit my fingernails constantly and it takes about 5-10 tries to get it out.
    Does anyone have a non spring loaded flashcart and installed springs in them. Or has anyone thought of that idea. I don't know if it is even possible but if it is help [​IMG]

    I do not see why it would not work, it would be a hell of a soldering trick though (especially if the pins do not line up).

    Kind of off topic, does anyone know any sites that do the connectors other than http://www.imperial-connect.co.uk/products/memory/minisd.asp as they have never got back to me (despite displaying interest in ordering several hundred).

    Why would you want to install a spring. Don't you think over time the spring will wear down? Some people have problems with the spring ejecting the SD card out and they can't use their flash cart. Since your card has the rumble feature, maybe that's why they left out the spring.

    Nope. SuperCard Lite (No Rmble) doesn't have a spring either

    If you haven't had it long give it some more time for the slot to wear in. My EZ-V was a right nail-breaking bitch when I first got it (15 mins to get the card out, ouch) but it's fine now.

    gotta use the thumb's nail, with the nail against the microSD [​IMG]

    I think I may pick some of these spring-loaded microSD slots up when I'm in HK and cut holes into my dust cover and see if i can get 2-3 spring-loaded microSD's into the dust cover =] if i manage to, i'll be sure to post the fruit of my labors

    Oh believe me I had nails when I started, didn't by the end of it [​IMG] It was too tight for your method to work straight away, I used to wiggle the card out side-to-side, forcing it left to right until it came out far enough for the nail-hook to work.
