    As I was enjoying Sonic and Sega All Stars Racing, it suddenly stopped rumbling. This has never happened to me before, is there any way how to fix it? Alternatively, any other sites to order this (or a better quality one), apart from Deal Extreme? Would not want to wait 1 month for delivery.
    I know it's not a big deal but I was used to rumble in certain games. I have a DS Lite, I should add.

    EDIT: Just found a positive review of eWin rumble pak on this very site, but cannot find it anywhere on the net. Anyone know if it's still being made/sold?

    Maybe you should get an EZFlash 3in1; that includes rumble.

    Which slot-1 flashcart do you have? 3in1s are virtually universal now, but it'd be better to double check.

    Lo and behold, I've fixed it! \o/
    It was just two wires COMPLETELY detached from where they should be soldered. And I even improved the rumble by inserting a soft piece of tissue between the rumble thingy and the plastic case, so that it now does not rattle so wildly but has a nice, soft rumble.
    Whoever makes these things should get a Nobel prize for non-quality.

    EDIT: @ProtoKun7: Thanks for the reply, but I don't want to buy a 3in1 card, I have my PSP for the GBA emulation, I just need my rumble in the DS [​IMG]
