Fixing an SD Card that is breaking apart

11 months 3 weeks ago #692388 by Addicted2Photos
I have a SanDisk 128GB Extreme Pro card that has started to split on the end with the metal connectors.  Can I use Gorilla glue to bond this back together?

PLEASE DON'T!

This type of glue will produce nasty fumes that are cause by the
chemical reaction that made the bond so fumous famous. :rofl:

The fumes themselves attack just about anything… even metals.

OTH, I have nothing else to suggest for that patient… :pinch:

I bought top 64 GB CF card some years back… 278 € each.
I just ordered the same yesterday… 44€. Really laughable!

isn't that the truth!  sadly i remember the astronomical cost of a 16mb card and what a game changer a 32 mb card was.

If you are judicious with the amount used and give it sufficient drying time, you should be fine.

Really?  Had no clue, thought any plastic model glue would work.  Good to know!

+1 pick up a new card, too cheap to worry about fixing old.

Is that the 170 or 300 MB/s card?  If the 170, those are only $39 bucks right now.

Is it a Genuine card? As others have said, it may be cheaper to just buy a new card. I'd still call SanDisk and let them know. They may just send you a replacement...
