    As u guys may have heard, a few weeks ago, my r4 spring broke. so i was forced to rip it out. all was good, and everything was working fine. however, now recently, when i shake the ds slightly, the microsd card would slide a bit, and would cause the ds to freeze. when i turn the ds back on, it wouldn't work until i remove the sd card and put it back in. any suggestions on how i can secure it in there? like a piece of metal or something :S

    please keep in mind i remove my sd card frequently to put in anime and such so taping it down or something is not a good solution.

    I was going to suggest some sort of tape but if you're frequently taking it out then that might not be a good idea, but the thing is, if you want it to stay and keep the ability to take the card out, tape might be the best option. Maybe a small piece of duct tape, big enough to secure it but small enough to easily remove.

    Otherwise, you could take this as a reason to upgrade to a better card. [​IMG]

    Unless I misunderstand the spring removal process, there should be a little metal thingy that you should have bent down to secure the card in place with friction.

    Ouch that stinks. I would try to open it back up again and bend the two metal tabs on the front bottom of the microsd slot in that may help.
    Next time I would put a small spot of super glue on the spring insted of ripping it out. It works and your card dont slide too far in or wiggle in the slot.
