    I'm going to try and make a list of known methods of breaking the spring loader and causing the Acekard 2i fail to lock the MicroSD in place.

    1. Push it in with a lot of force.
    2. Dropping the Acekard 2i onto the ground at 3 stories and up high.
    3. After at least 200 uses, it may break.
    4. When given to an animal to chew on.
    5. When it is in a humid place for an extended period of time.

    Currently, it's like that. Are there any more? The main purpose is to create a list of these methods for people to understand what makes your Acekard 2i to fail/break itself.

    You make it sound like you're deliberately trying to break your Acekard...

    Haha, it's the best way to shock people into not dropping the acekard from a 90 story apartment and driving over it with a heat exhaust, rocket powered bulldozer though.

    Technically speaking, you can break your spring any way you want. It's basically limitless on how you could break it [​IMG]

    Just use it normally and it will break within a few months. [​IMG]

    Mine lasted a whole year before I replaced it.
    And it still didn't break, I just wanted a flusher fitting cart!

    Are you looking to release a CD of all your brilliant topics you've generated? I'd be interested in purchasing a copy.
    Although it staggers me how an R4 Ultra user running the modded AKAIO knows so, so much.......here's a recent sample (apart from this gem) of your recent work in the AK section:

    Create a weapon of mass destruction which is able to destroy the earth, make sure said Acekard is on said planet and that should do it.

    I would also asume putting it in and taking it out over and over and over would cause the spring or some part to get hot and break.

    I think it will break by itself after 200 uses.

    What if you just do the trick someone mentioned on here and pull the card out instead of using the spring?

    Then it will never break, hopefully. Our DS's are at stake here.

    My Acekard just arrived.
    And the damn spring already broke, after 20 minutes. [​IMG]

    I'm so happy.

    Is there anything I can do?

    I wish no carts had spring mechanisms.
