Everdrive SD Card Slot Alternatives / Preserving The Cartridge Shell

What's the Everdrive?

The Everdrive is capable of running games, software and even music tracks from a SD card. Basically this is a SD card to classic console adapter.

Filing SD card slots in the cartridge shell has been the traditional method. You can view my old article here on filing slots on NES shells here.   I have since discovered a much easier way to use the SNES everdrive and this will work for many other flash carts as well.

There is a small micro SD adapter on the market made for Macbook Air laptops.  It's half the height of standard SD cards and perfect for this project. There are several variations on the market, purchase the one that matches my photo.

With the SNES Everdrive the adapter fits perfectly.  No drilling,filing or hacking required!

Simply assemble the cartridge back toget her an play. Very simple.  Obviously this method works best when your SD card is loaded with all the software and no immediate file changes are required.

Honestly this requires simple modification to the SD adapter but I do not consider this practical for some. Follow the photo guide at your own risk.

 To remove the SD card, find a small device like a toothpick or jewelers screwdriver and push the SD card down. This will initiate the eject mechanism.


  1. Nice guide, but if you don't have the adapter be aware that many regular SD cards just have empty space at the top. I simply used a sharp pair of scissors to cut the top end off of my card and it fit perfectly.

  2. Good website! I truly love how it is easy on my eyes it is. I am wondering how I might be notified whenever a new post has been made. I have subscribed to your RSS which may do the trick? Have a great day! 파워사다리
