Dead on arrival. DX wants me to pay for replacmnt!

  • wmtoh Thursday, September 03, 2009 3:17 AM Reply
    Can you believe that DX wants me to pay for getting a replacement when in the first place, what they sent me didn't work right out of the plastic case?


    I'll post a follow up once I can get some resolution from DX.

    there's nothing in this to make it not work... just a pin-to-pin adapter.

    -Did you check your micro SD to make sure it's not dead ?

    -Some of these only work for non-SDHC (direct pin-to-pin with no chip inside)

    example of the internals:

    That is a Micro to full SD, but these have the same layout.

    and before anybody says "Micros have 8 pins, Minis have 11"... notice the 3 center pins aren't used.

    sky to the ground !

    Mine was also dead on arrival and i took pictures and send a detailed description of why they dont work and they send me 2 new ones free.

    one of them just did not work.
    the other one i could not get the card in it.

    i tried taking mine apart and its a sealed unit and it does not come apart.

    In essence, the microsd card (256mb...note!) works in full SD adapter but not in the mini sd adapter (that I bought from DX).

    MiniSD card reader socket is working cos its tested with a minisd card.

    Conclusion...minisd adapter is not working.

    probably uneven pins... lightly tap it in the center with a small flatheaded hammer.

    I had to do this to a Micro SD - Pro Duo adapter.

    Thanks for the suggestions. I've tried that, and also tried squeezing it a little before inserting the card. I tried jiggling it a little as well. Just doesn't read the microsd card.

    Hmm, normally you get what you pay for, and in this case you do, a bit of useless plastic.
