    So i finally outgrew my first microSD card for my flash cart. What the hell do you do to store your spare cards? they are so tiny! I found a neat solution that some others might find useful. I glued a microSD card slot to the screen! lid still closes, it doesnt look that awful, and its nice and secure.

    Why don't you just put it in your GBA dustcover?

    But +5 internets for that [​IMG]

    Have you ever actually tried that? the card gets stuck between the connector a lot, and is difficult to retrieve when you are on the road. I thought the SD slot would be a lot cooler if it were inside of a modified dust cover though

    Spare slot-2 cart shells might be a good starting point for this. The M3 comes with several extra shells in alternate colors.

    Hah, really neat idea...

    I toyed with the idea of storing stuff in the Slot-2 dust cover, but unfortunately there's not a lot of empty space to work with...but it's something to think about. There might be a passable way to dremel out a storage container in the dust cover....

    It looks terrible imho. I would have gone with sticking them in a DS case, or gluing those to the inside of the dust cover vertically.

    Pfft, thank God I have my mobile memory kit case so I won't have to come up with hairbrained ideas like this. A little offense is intended :D

    While I think that looks like a hell of a hack-job, if you were to improve it, I could see it being interesting.

    By "improve" I mean cover up the DS slots. The way they look now are an eyesore. Perhaps something as simple as a bit of electrical tape, dunno.

    Also, you need to include pictures of it closed on it's side.

    it is a neat idea i'll give you that - but a very ugly solution.

    Ew. I'd rather just keep it somewhere uncased.
