External SD card slot?

Post by Happswitch » Thu Apr 11, 2013 9:19 pm

Anyone have a solution/vendor for a SD card extension setup? I'd like to look into creating an external slot on my cocktail cabinet for the SD card...

My PCB is mounted just inside the coin door, so no problem for me.... But for curiosity's sake, I just placed an oreder for this:

It's shipping from Korea, and the estimated arrival date range is over a month away, but when it arrives, I'll post my results.

Excellent! Thanks!

Price isn't bad. Let me know if it works with the board, and I'll probably grab one as well. The length would definitely work for my cabinet.

This is a really good idea. Even though updates don't happen often, it would be nice to not have to move the machine to dig inside just to get the SD card. I'll have my eye on this for the future when I get my cab.

I ordered one of these... it works fine. Just plug one end into the card slot and your SD card goes in the other. Be aware, though, if you buy the one from this eBay auction, the ribbon is only 18 inches long, so it may not be suitable for all cabinets.

Desperately holding back on "18 inches not being enough" jokes...

Seriously... I wonder what the expected application of this is supposed to be? That cable seems awfully short. Nice to hear that it connects and works smoothly.

I'm probably going to need closer to 36 inches to make it work in my cabinet, unless I drill it out near the bottom of the box...
