    Hi, I just found out that the 3DS XL that i bought from Ebay has a faulty SD Card and sending it back for replacement is a no go since I live from the UAE and I just ordered it using shop and ship. So can you guys tell me if the below link is a good replacement to buy?

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/INNER-SD-ME...467797?hash=item3d10006a95:g:t4IAAOSw~gRV6CQN

    The thing is they have free international shipment. If only there are 3ds parts here in this country. And SD card reader is the same for all the old console right?

    Only the o3ds, n3ds/n3ds XL have easily replaceable sd slots, the o3ds xl and 2ds would require the old adapter to be desoldered and a new part soldered in

    That part is for a small o3ds

    Is it that hard? I know a technician who works with electronics that can help me with soldering.
