    It might be able to be fixed, if the spring came off... but if something broke, then no.
    There are tutorials on how to remove the spring, so that it doesn't cause problems.

    explain further please?

    But BTW it might not be broken. The spring is designed so the slot can be locked down so you can use it as if theres no spring, you just push the microsd in and pull it out like an R4. To lock the spring you just push the microsd in then pull it out.

    I wouldn't suggest messing with it. Doing so may cause an accidental bridged connection, and it could fry your DS. I've heard this happen with R4s, but not with Acekards.

    the spring-loaded sd slot is encased with thin metal, so the spring won't bounce around in your cart and ruin your card.
    i suggest not messing with it, since it is more likely to be broken by trying to open it up [​IMG]
