    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?

    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.
