    I had my ncard hooked up to my computer yesterday. I stood up and my legs caught the cable of the writer. The USB writer is now in two parts. The main board and the USB connector. I could probably fix it with some hard-core soldering, but it would be easier if somebody had a writer they did not need.

    I may sound cheap, but I am broke. I have about 3$ cash. I cant afford to buy one.
    People brick their cards all the time. Surely somebody out there with a bricked card would be willing to help a fellow Ncard owner in his time of need! I have contacted the store that I pruchased my card from, but they sold it to me 8 months ago, I doubt they still have any sort of owner-stupidity warenty that lasts that long.

    I need help. Have some compassion!

    Sorry, can't help you out. I feel for you though. I'd send you one if I had a spare.

    I'll send someone a GBA SP and Super Mario Advance 4 if they hook him up.

    I can buy a new writer for 10$ with shipping.
    I am going to try to solder my new one back together.
    I am going to hav to buy a smaller soldering iron though and that might cost more. Lame.

    I would take any size writer at this point. Mines been broken for a week.
    I can always do some sanding.

    Damn, that sucks paul. I really wish I had a spare that I could send to you.

    It's been a month since you first posted this though, you haven't gotten a new one yet? What have you been doing, just replaying the games that were already on your cart?

    You should get one of those new N-Card readers. Are they even out yet?

    Let us know if you ask him for one of the new ones, or if you get one. If he's really getting them for people, then I'll pick one up too.

    Hopefully the write speeds will be faster.

    What type of soldering iron do you have? Or to be more precise what sized tip? If you have a 40W one you may be able to get away with it. That looks pretty easy. You could send it to me to fix, or fix it your self. If your iron is 40 Watt don't spend too long on each solder point.

    Where do you live?
    I will send it to you, as its useless to me.
    You are going to have scrape off the plastic on the traces to solder the wires.
    Also, the 2nd prong on the right has no connection. This is not bacause I broke it off, it never connected to anything.

    I want your PITY!

    ...Nearly a year and you didn't buy a new flash card yet? Holy hell, man, last I checked you could get a DSTT and a 2GB microSD for under $30, and I know you paid at least that much for your N-Card.

    haha, because of people like you Ive brought a DSTT.

    My old NCARD I had over 1 year, now my brother has it, still works nice.
    My brand new DSTT last 3months, then it started to freak, now its like russian roulette if it works... out of 100 turn ons 1~2 works. Dont tell me about blowing in / cleaning etc, already tried everything.
