    Is there like a leading cause of death among SCSDs?

    I finally decided this after it stopped booting in my DSL and i tried it in my GBA and it still wont work.

    So I guess I need a new one. Any ideas? I need the RAM for the DS Browser stuff, and being flush with the DSL is preferable.

    You could try sticking a bit of folded paper in the slot to make it touch the contacts better, but this might not help.

    I'm not completely sure if the contacts are the problem--but i will try this.
    Reasoning behind this: I can plug in the cart at any time and it'll hard-reset the DS.

    EDIT: Tried it, still didn't work.

    Tested it in my GBA and it still didn't work [​IMG] So at this point i think i can confirm it dead.

    check if the board inside the cart has moved or slipped out of place

    but it's probably dead

    That happens with most slot-2 Supercards, including my own. Shame to hear your Supercard is dead though.

    EDIT: hold up, you never really specified what exactly the issue was. Do games not work anymore? Or can you not boot it at all? Does holding L+R at bootup do anything?

    omg. this is awesome. i did not know this existed. (Perhaps upload it to the download centre?)

    but it doesn't work... [​IMG]

    EDIT: FOUND MY ISSUE! Turns out the MX chip is cracked CLEANLY in half. >< Perhaps if i can solder THAT much better, maybe, just maybe i can get a new one. :\

    EDIT #2: My soldering skills aren't that good. Plus i couldn't find the damn chip on mouser or digikey D= FUCK! No mp3 until my dad lets me buy a new one (hopefully a M3 Perfect lite) [​IMG]
