Big surprise for all who dont know yet :
A micro SD card is on the main board inside the Wavedrum
most Data are on the card...
backup Data + more is possible ...
basic info here (freestok) ...

http://www.korgforums.com/forum/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=63557&sid=d9dfceee7952f7241075de884c140bdf

A special cable can bring the SD card to outside , for easy access.

I dont want to use freestoks thread for discussing order details

GROUP ORDER
I couldnt find an adress for single order for this special cable
(if somebody has a single order adress , please tell me )

now I am going to order 20 (or 40) of these extension cables
+"middle bottom" protected solution
+ solid plastic encased reader , Glue on / Velcro outside
+ NORMAL SD Card size reader
(+no drilling )
+25 cm cable length

-leading the cable outside needs probably to scratch away 2-3 mm of plastic
-no experience about mechanical stability , yet
-has never been mounted before
(a little bit of improvisation is maybe necessary to mount it )

latest news :
this item has been discontinued
we have been too ZZZZZZ
I am already in contact with alibaba ,looking for a solid alternative
--->48 cm cable seems still to be available

----->25 cm cable is available again Laughing



Exclamation This thread (until now) opens an order list list FOR EUROPE Exclamation

I suggest a minimum order of 2 cables
there is no warranty for an intact cable
(maybe we keep 2 extra as a safety insurance)
Price in Europe is higer than in China
needs repacking , confirm bank transfer , and ,and ,and
so this is no business ,
but I do everybody (incl.myself) a favour ...(what an idiot Wink )

maybe its useful to open your WD and remove the the 2 screws at 11 and 13 o clock
and the plastic shield , so you can have a first impression about mounting and leading out the cable.
(no discussion about construction with me , before you opened your WD ,please.)

keep it easy for me , ....

if you want to be on my EUROPEAN LIST
confirm with email

Counter for Europe
number of orders : waterdrum 4
razzaq 2 ok
edo 2 ok (or more ,cool OK))
michael 2 OK
kenny 2 OK
freestok 1 OK
panason 1 OK
bogtrumpet 1 OK
????? means : needs to be confirmed , please

this private (non commercial) action goes over email ,
and bank account transfer , when the cables are in EU ,
so I need your confirmation per email

waterdrum[at]gmx[dot]de

if there are things to be spoken about cable details , ordering details ,
constructive thoughts , whatever ,
please post here and keep the info together.

when somebody wants to make a group order from US/ elsewhere ,
you are of course welcome to this thread with your group order
( we only should not mix up the lists Wink )

so I hope we find enough people soon.....
so long.

edited to update order list

The eBay cable you linked should be here soon. I will let you know how it goes. I suspect that same Company would be willing to make some to spec but the 20 piece lot isn't than bad. Good luck with an order I only had 1 other in the state and 1 from overseas actually confirm they wanted one. I hope it goes better for you.

I dont want to link it here again , too confusing...
the encased reader looks more stabil to me ,
but every reader should do .

@ people from US

its easier within the US
the European order is nearly finished...

as soon as the first people have their cable mounted ,
there will be more to join in , I am shure ...

Looks OK, I'm in!

We just need to work out the best way to fix the male end to the WD card slot, I haven't opened my WD yet, I'm waiting for a replacement head so I can do that at the same time.

The WD slot has a little cover that clips onto the SD card, and that may or may not work, so I'm thinking of using a little bit of silicone gel?

We really don't want't the connection to come loose while the WD is on, it may corrupt the data on the card.

the order is arranged with China now
paypal not available on the website ,
needed to be done per email .

in 2 /3 days my paypal account is filled up
(I m a paypal newbie...)
and the transaction will be OK until Friday (hopefully)

there is an additional VAT of 19 % (could avoid import tax...)
plus shipping to you
plus one symbolic beer (from a shop , not a bar)

OK ?
please watch this thread

@panason : comes a time , comes a cable , comes a solid solution.. Wink

I will wait until next week for another paypal try.
seems the manufacturer of the cables is not able
to give me a paypal account ,
where paypal makes a money transfer...(???)
I tried 5 times , sent 8 emails , 2 telefone calls with paypal.
I will try with a money transfer to a Singaporean bank.
2 dollars per cable extra.

I'm also in the U.S., and I would be interested in getting two of the SD cables.

Thanks,

@Scott
you are not alone if you want cables
@US
please open up your own list , I can not send to US
...import tax (?)...VAT.. and ,and ,and ...
please start an US list by yourself
you only need to find a fool , who does the work... Wink
paypal could be possible from the US , from Germany ...not
you need to send an email to Celia Chen
(see the cable company's website)
I can see that these cables(+big reader) will sell like warm cake

there was a lot of hassle with the cables and paypal ,

also nobody wants to exchange sounds (=much demotivating)...Crying or Very sad
(direct sound implementation is possible with card access)...Question

so I let it sleep for a while
I will try one more time these days
with the Singapore bank account

another possibility:
ask Korg directly that they could sell these cables
and open up their Wavedrum to modifications
like the Monotron family ...Cool
here is the adress
http://www.korgforums.com/forum/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=72301&sid=2cbf830c74b3859e1fd10a5b87a14925

Hi everyone,
Selling two cables like the one on the picture below - brand new, still sealed.
Cable length : 6,2 cm without connectors - 9,3 cm including connectors.
Price for one cable : 13 euros.
Shipping charges will vary depending on where you are (I'm located in France). I guess it won't be very expensive, since the cable weighs nearly nothing.
PM me if you're interested !

seems like my favourite micro sd extension cables with a "solid" normal size SD card reader have arrived in England ....
Worldwide shipping , no minimum order like 1000 or 20 cables Laughing
the cable length is 20" (10" would be enough for me),
but it can get folded easily (or even shortened by DIY action)

http://www.ebay.at/itm/SD-to-MicroSD-Card-Extension-Cable-/111172530933?pt=UK_Photography_MemoryCardReaders_RL&hash=item19e26632f5

payment with paypal is possible
(this was and is the problem with the Chinese manufacturer)

Arrow this cable makes exchanging Usersounds very easy
and I still hope , this will be happening in this forum (where else?) Wink
