Alright so I got my switch Thursday *ordered off ebay* switch worked great... Friday I got my SX Pro dongle and tried to use it, it wouldn’t read my SD card ? So I took it apart and the SD reader wasn’t plugged in so I plugged it back in, put my switch back together, put the SD card in formatted it... everything seemed ok... went to the store for 15 mins and came home and the back of my switch was melted the kickstand was melted to the back and the back was melted right to the SD card slot.. so now I’ve ordered a new SD card reader for it and took back the melted SD card to Walmart, which they let me exchange ..... now what @.@ what the hell!?!?! Why would it melt like that?!?!?

I have seen this before. When microSD cards get cracks they go nuclear and short. As for why they crack in the first place i don't know.
This is what happened after getting the melted crap off I seen the SD card was broke... at first I thought it happened when I took the melted stuff off but thinking back when I changed the backplate I never took the SD card out before putting it back on so must be when I put the plate on it snapped the corner off
