    My SuperCard CF is *very* hard to remove from the GBA slot. I really have to pull very hard.
    Inserting is not easy either.

    Now I'm scared the case will break. The purple plastic is already getting white:

    Yeah, I guess an M3 would have been a better choice :|

    But is there really nothing I can do? Like cutting some edges of the card or something? I don't know what exactly is causing this, though. It seems to be the same size as real carts. [​IMG]

    It will get better once you've had it in and out for a couple of times.

    Pull it out with slight side to side movemnts, but mainly hard pulling (keep the mem card in or the SC flexes, because of the gap)

    As said, once in and out a few times it loosens.

    When I first got my gba sp a few years ago I found my xtreme 512mb flash card wouldn't fit without forcing it into the slot. What I did was file it at the sides. It then fitted in the sp like a glove. You could try doing this with the supercard.

    I guess my SuperCard is too "fat". I cut the sides a bit but it didn't help. I guess it's just too thick.

    After comparing with an original GBA cartridge, the SuperCard IS thicker. >_<
    But how do I cut *that*!?

    Done. Thanks, it fits now. But now seems to break into many parts when used often. I guess I filed too much.
    Oh well, next time I'll get a M3. [​IMG]
