I doubt the connectors on the GPIO cables people are selling are any different from those on floppy cables.thogue wrote: this was a custom GPIO cable cut from a floppy cable...... looks like I paid the price.....
What exactly broke?which result in your pi not working as the connection to the sd card is extremely sensitive, I havnt been able to finish a successful boot without the tiniest wiggle of my hand causing disk errors.
Sorry, I wasnt clear, it was cut from a floppy cable which has more than 26 pins, I just snipped the connecter off at pin 27/28. So it is slightly larger than what you would get from a home-pressed gpio cable. I used the cable for a small project and just soldered the other end of the cable onto the board of my project. I dont really know if this has anything todo with it, I fill like its harder to pull off than my 26pin from Adafruit.plugwash wrote: I doubt the connectors on the GPIO cables people are selling are any different from those on floppy cables.
The SD card slot broke. It looks like it could be replaced... but looks like it would be pretty difficult for me. Here is my attempt at an ascii art explanation from the underside view. Maybe a hack fix could be to glue a microsd converter inWhat exactly broke?
If it's the solder joints then you can probablly resolder them.
if it's the socket it's probablly possible albiet tricky to replace them.
If the pads broke away from the board you are probablly screwed.
