Repairing Raspberry Pi SD holder. Kevin writes-
Do a quick Google, and you’ll find a lot of people have broken their Raspberry Pi SD card socket. Justin Shaw and I both broke ours within 15 minutes of each other while chatting on the Internet. In my case, I put my finger on the card while unplugging the HDMI cable. Adafruit makes a nifty half length Micro-SD to SD slot adapter. If I had this to begin with, my slot probably wouldn’t have broken. When I saw it, I thought maybe I could glue it in to restore function to the broken Pi.
Each Friday is PiDay here at Adafruit, be sure to check out our posts, tutorials and new Raspberry Pi related products. Have you tried the new “Adafruit Raspberry Pi Educational Linux Distro” ? It’s our tweaked distribution for teaching electronics using the Raspberry Pi.
