    [I dont speak english everyday, it is'nt my fault language. sorry for bad english]
    hi, i'm new in this forum. i write this post because last day my friend gift to me a broken old 3ds because he tried to make an hardmod but he failed. i cleaned all with my solderer, flux and a lot of patience and finally the 3ds resurrected, but it dont read any sdcard. i tested in any way al the points of sdcard reader and i noticed it works. i think the damage is in the motherboard. i noticed with sorrow that there is a black component with 8 pins (4 per part) that is burned. in motherboard his name is RA1 and its writed in white color. i found a photo on internet that can explain better. the component circled in red looks the same as mine, i cant shot hd photos now. anyone can help me? i'm not sure this is the cause of issue, and if it is the cause of issue anyone can tell me its name and where i can buy spare part? thanks in advance.
