    Hello,

    Since my M3 Simply is often not reconized by my DS, I decided to open it up. The problem seems to be the contacts: they seems dirtier than on my other DS cards.

    How would you clean those? And, btw, is there a way to fix a broken MicroSD spring?



    Many thanks,

    gabou



    EDIT: Cleaned with an eraser, and putted a small piece of paper behind the contacts. The card now fit more thightly in the DS slot, and it seems to be reconized all the time. Have I done it right?

    I dont know about the eraser, but several places have I seen a paper padding mentioned so yes, I guess its right.
