Hey guys, I've been having this issue for a while now where my adapter was half ass reading my microSD cards and lately it's been gradually getting worse, I mean regular cards work fine but this one particular adapter just refuses to read unless it feels like it. Anyone have any idea as to what the problem could be?

Dirt on the contacts, or just the contacts wearing down. If it's one of those cheap MicroSD adaptors you get for free with some products (like the M3 Real) then they have a life expectancy of 2 weeks. If it's one of those multi-media readers, then they have a life expectancy of 4-8 months.

When dealing with MicroSD, I prefer the MicroSD-SD adaptors you get with most MicroSD cards. SD is so much easier to deal with than MicroSD.

My AKi broke down on me.
Bought a new one for the same price as the card itself

    wouldn't worry about it to much
  • DinohScene @ DinohScene:
    altho I do advise you to turn up the fans to 65% orso in Dashlaunch
  • ILeo @ ILeo:
    is that safe a lot of people told me not to mess up with the fan also the guy who i bough it from said that too
  • DinohScene @ DinohScene:
    turning the fans up is better then turning them down
  • DinohScene @ DinohScene:
    if the fans blow harder, your 360 will run cooler
  • ILeo @ ILeo:
    ok doin it now
  • ILeo @ ILeo:

    What is the recommended banner resolution for groups?
  • Flame @ Flame:
    i dont think they is one just get the biggest banner you find for your 70's computer group
  • IanSkinner1982 @ IanSkinner1982:
    70's and 80's! (maybe 90's too, I forgot when CBM went bankrupt)
    And alright.
  • DinohScene @ DinohScene:
    putting a 360 in a pc case is a big project... I'd just leave it at upping the fan
  • RedoLane @ RedoLane:
    so much for making a decent group.
