    For something so small, it's amazing how durable these micro sds and sdhc are, this is considering how much arduous scraping you have to do to pull it out of the Cyclo [​IMG]
    I keep thinking I'm going to break it.
    I mean really you can eat the damn thing and not even choke on it.
    I suppose it gets easier everytime you pull it out, but sometimes I wish it was like the R4 and just pops out.

    It will get a lot easier later on. And spring-loaded slots are bad because they tend to break.

    And yes, microSDs are indeed a technological breakthrough. [​IMG]

    Apparently you've not broken one in half.

    I did.


    You don't have much to worry about in removing it from flashcarts, though.

    You're very close.
    It was in a cell phone, and the metal sleeve it was inserted in looked hinged to me.
    (indeed, the way the phone was shaped, it should have been hinged)
    but sadly I was mistaken, overpowered it, and had to buy my friend a new microSD card.

    [​IMG] I'm not a small guy.
    I have a tendency to break itty-bitty things.

    Now it's 16GB! [​IMG] But I agree on how durable microSD cards are. When I got a hold of my first microSD I thought for sure it would be broken within a week, but it has stayed strong for years! There's a higher chance of losing such a small thing than breaking it!

    the problem with microSDs isn't their durability, it's the fact that they're so damn small i keep losing em. I've lost a 2 gig, a 128 mb, a 1 gig, and a 512 mb micro sd.
