Well if the are soldered then the problem is worst
than I thought because when I take all the packages
off the internal store. Both the Extras Drawer and
Dashboard say that there is nothing left-that the
memory is empty. So whatever they are getting this
info from is messed up as well. I am also skeptical
of "wiping". I have a back up of stuff but if it's on
the card what happens when i wipe the card???
