Introduction: How to Hide SD Cards Inside Video Games
Do you have information on SD cards that you don't want anyone to see? Do you like hideing things where no-one will find them? Do I sound like a person from an infomercial? Anyway,this instructable will teach you how to hide SD cards inside video games.
Specifically,how to hide SD cards inside Gameboy Color and Gameboy Advance games. This is my first instructable,so comments telling what I did wrong,if I did anything wrong,would be appreciated.
Step 1: Stuff You'll Need.
You will need:
A Gameboy Color game
A Gameboy Advance game
A mini SD card
A Micro SD card
A small flathead screwdriver
Scotch Tape ( not pictured )
Step 2: Color or Advance?
Decide. Color houses mini SD, Advance houses Micro SD. For Gameboy Color instructions,go to the next step,for Gameboy Advance ,go to step 6.
Step 3: Gameboy Color-Mini SD
Flip the game so the label is faceing down. You will see a REALLY odd-looking screw on the back. You could find an odd-looking screwdriver that matches it (I couldn't) or you can open it with the flathead by putting the head into one of the grooves and pushing it counterclockwise to loosen it. Sorry my camera couldn't focus on the screw.
Step 4: Inserting the SD Into the Color Game
Open it in the similar way to the Gameboy Advance game on step 6. Once it's open,put the SD EXACTLY where the picture illustrates. Failure to do so may result in permanent damage to your SD card. It may take some pressure, but close the game again and screw it back toghether. See picture.
Step 5: Color-Done!
Done! For alternate construction,go to final step.
Step 6: Gameboy Advance-Micro SD
This one is far easier than the Color one. Flip it so that the label is faceing down. Near the top,you will see a tri-head screw. This can very easily be opened with the flathead screwdriver by just twisting it. That might take a few tries. Once the screw is out,flip it over again so the label is faceing up and slide the front of the game cartrige down. You should just be able to pick up the front now that it's been slidden down. Put the SD in where it's shown in the picture and close it again.
Step 7: Final Step
Alternate construction for both versions is the same. It's better if you don't care if the game still works or not because it gives you more room and you can use Scotch Tape to prevent the SD from rattleing around in the game houseing. For alternate construction,when you have the game open, just take out the game's circutboard ( the game itself ). This will leave an entirely empty game houseing to tape your SD card inside.
Step 8: DONE WITH EVERYTHING
Well...Until I make another Instructable,I hope you enjoyed this one. I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DAMAGE TO SD CARDS DUE TO IMPROPER USE OF THIS INSTRUCTABLE.
