    hmmm, it fits fine already, just slightly tight but no reason to go sanding it. if you had a supercard lite you'd know what tight is.

    well, when i pull it out of my gf's pink one, i can see it pulling on the little piece of plastic between it and the top of the bottom part. it's nothing big, but i see it and it bothers me. lol. i keep thinking i'm going to bust it, and then she'd kill me.

    well, if you do it, put some extra fine sandpaper down on a board or other flat surface, and tape it in place. then lightly rub the M3 on the sandpaper. that way your sanding is even and flat. what you dont want to do is hold the sandpaper in your hand and rub the M3 with it.

    just a few strokes on each side would do it just fine right?

    That will depend on the sand paper and how you're sanding. do you have experience in sanding or with tools?

    Yea, i was in construction for a stint. but now i'm thinking, i switch it between the two ds's alot, well, i dont, my gf doesnt get the concept that it's not saved on her DS, it's saved on the cart. so everytime she wants to play, she sticks it into her pinkie, and i figure enough of that and it'll wear down and eventually not connect, so im not going to help it any.
    thanks anyways!!

    best solution, buy her her own so she'll leave yours alone, that's what I do.

    well, thats the plan now. but the m3 was my first entrance into this whole scene. but i was planning on just giving her the m3 and me getting a SCL, so i could compare the two. but now the M3's have pink cases. and she really really wants it to match her pink one.

    if you want a supercard lite, let me know I've got 2 lying around that I use barely as testing units now. Basically brand new and I'll sell @ a discount of the price I got @ realhotstuff.
