Hello crossztc,

thank you for your tip at thingiverse (Ksanto here), before that I didn't even knew that this is a thing.

Du you use my Card design? Did you use something else before to hold the card? Do original Cards still work?

My Ditto Card is from the third Batch (got mine in april). If yours is from second Batch, then you should have the Ditto mini for a longer period of time. For how Long did you use it approximately?

Edit: Sorry, didn't read till the end, had in mind your post from the other thread. When one card of 3 is not working, then indeed I would assume that this is a hardware issue.

Hello Sprinter ,

Thank you for making the 3D model. It's great! I'm ready to print it out and use it for my Ditto! :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

Before that, my first Ditto Card used the official game shell. The broken card was just received recently (I live in China and mail arrives slowly. :cry: ). When I opened the box and used it for the first time, something went wrong.

Yes, you're right. this is a hardware issue.There may be problems with chip welding I think. :cry:

Please try something. I had a version that was released early - like before the final production run that was initially released. It had issues after having used it a few times and I didn't do anything to the card that would have caused stress on it, but the solder was weak on one of the chips. This will be covered by the seller, so definitely contact him at [url=mailto:[email protected]][email protected][/url].

Meanwhile, please try something to confirm it's a soldering issue. Try pressing lightly on the small black chip that is below the white connector while programming the DITTO mini. If it writes successfully, try putting it in your Pokemon Mini with the front of the shell off and use something to apply light pressure to that same chip while starting it up. I had good luck using the battery cover for this. It was believed the solder issue had been resolved with the manufacturer, but it seems like that's very likely what the issue is.

Since you have had success with other circuit boards, we can rule out an issue with the the flasher, but that is a possible cause for this issue if anyone else has something similar.

That sounds like the issue i had.
I had the last batch. worked for a bit then either froze or get the no game message.
Then it gave me falures verifying.
They replaced my dito and now it is fine. When i get more cash i will buy more.

Any word when the new writer software that will support multiple roms will be out?

Hi, thank you very much for your idea!

I've tried it. Yes,as you said it's a soldering issue!the solder was weak on one of the chips. Thank you! :D

Now, I need to contact them to help me change a card. :)
