    I'm wanting to mod some hardware with an SD reader in it, but I don't want the SD to stick out, so I want to get a spring-loaded SD reader and mod it. Does anyone know where I can get such a device? USB only please. I know they do exist... Wii, Many laptops, cameras, etc...

    Thanks,
    Your Friendly PC-Building Egg

    This was all I could find that is confirmed to fit flush and be spring loaded. Hope you have a MacBook Pro with an ExpressCard slot [​IMG]

    I need USB... The SD doesn't have to be flush inside the reader, as long as its spring loaded.

    A lot of USB card readers that aren't the cheapy $1 ones off of DealExtreme are spring-loaded.

    It's so common now that it's not advertised in the product's description as much... but I'd rather not take my chances and suggest a reader that God forbid is one of the few that aren't spring-loaded.

    Also, I thought you didn't want the SD card to stick out of the reader?

    It's going to be part of a game console case mod. I can adjust the reader to any position to make it wherever I want it to be in the case, including depth. I just would like spring load, so that I don't have to leave room for fingers to grab it.

    P.S. It's going to be a NES PC... Sssssshhhhhhh... I didn't tell anyone...
