    well, the contacts are getting shoddy on my trusty M3 CF. so much so that i can hardly get the thing to boot up anymore. to make matters worse, the pressure on the Slot 2 connector has made it loose enough that even real GBA carts are getting unreliable. so, only one thing left to try...solder the M3 directly to the slot! all i've gotten complete so far is the wires soldered to the connectors.

    next, when i have time, i'm going to solder the other ends of all those wires to my M3, put it back in it's case, and superglue it to the bottom of the DS. if all goes according to plan, i should have a DS with a permanent, built in M3 CF. [​IMG]

    Okay now I understand. I thought that you were putting the CF inside the case. Like completely inside, and I was wondering why since it wouldn't fit.
