    I ordered two Acekard 2's from Realhotstuff.com and they both came with a different microSD adapter. it seems very cheap like realhotstuff.com opened the packaging and took out the real micosd adapter and replaced it with these. they work but they are supercheap anybody know why?[​IMG]

    Ouch you may have gotten screwed over or Acekard is getting lazy.
    If the plastic molds perfectly to the ghetto adapter then that means that acekard is just getting lazy.

    looks like they might of opened it and lost the original, and substituted a DSTT reader instead, so not cool.

    They are known to come with these readers now.

    The original ak2 readers have been known to corrupt cards.

    If you're still using yours, I suggest you stop.

    I wrote that before it was well-known that it corrupted cards.

    And that still remains true. It does look nice.

    Which one is the original? The all plastic one (without the metal USB connector)?

    I would recommend it. You probably have a hundred other readers lying around.

    When you guys say "corrupt," does that mean the card is rendered useless? Or can you reformat it and the card is fine again?

    Also, can't you use the microSD to SD card converter adapter? That way you can just stick the whole thing into a regular SD reader?
