    Hey peeps, I have a 1GB Sandisk MicroSD. I bought it about a year or two ago, alongside a SCDS1. I've been using it in conjunction with this SCDS1 up until recently, in which I switched the MicroSD over to an Acekard 2. After a few weeks of use with the Acekard 2, the black sticker on the back of the card began to become pulled back. This became bothersome, so I considered pulling the back sticker off completely but immeaditly stopped when I saw a few circular contact-looking objects under the sticker. What are they, should I find a replacement sticker if it eventually does come off?

    Many thanks in advance! [​IMG]

    Those are speed holes. They make the card go faster.

    I really can't tell if you're being serious or not.
