Re: My internal flash card reader no longer functions

I'm amazed CF readers last more than a few dozen insertions with all those 50 tiny pins waiting for a chance to bend/break. Evidently they're rated at 10,000 insertions. Note that the same type of sockets used in some military gear are rated as low as 5 insertions in order to meet contact resistance specs.
