There are some reports appearing online that suggest that Nintendo’s new console is overheating and melting SD cards. Further investigation however debunks this theory and highlights that the problem actually lies with a faulty batch of SD cards being sold via online retailer Amazon and not the Nintendo Switch itself.

Some consumers are taking it upon themselves to write up reviews which clearly indicate that the issue is with the SD card with some individuals pointing out that the SD card took a turn for the worse when used in their laptop.

The problem isn’t going unnoticed as SanDisk are keen to reply to product reviews rather quickly with the following generic message:

We are sorry to hear about the issue that you have faced while using the card with your laptop . We would request you to please not to use this card on any device SanDisk® stands behind its commitment to quality and warranty on its products.

  1. Nintenmau5 must be a witch! Burn him! To the wicker Man!

    Seriously. He’s been a decent addition to this circus, does he really deserve to be jammed with the “clickbait” Pitchfork? Sure we get a couple of charged particles now and then, but this site has never been click baity.

  2. That’s weird. I wonder what kind of manufacturing defect gives a plastic a really low melting point. Maybe the issue is a little bit of a. Issue on both ends? Anybody ever here of this happening in other devices?
