    Default Nintendo Display Video Compact Flash Card

    In my continuing escapades of vendors letting me have stuff they're supposed to recover I have yet another query. This here...



    ...is a CF card that Nintendo uses along with a cheapy little CF card reader in some of its store displays (the ones that just loop game videos over and over again). Nothing special about it other than the label marking it as a Nintendo display part, for Quarter 2, 2009 Version 1. The card itself contains a single .mpg video file, just shy of 900MB, super high quality as one would assume. The videos are like Mario Power Tennis rerelease, second Professor Layton game, DSi promo, Wii Internet connection overview, ExciteBots, etc.

    As with most Nintendo display things, they are expected to be retained by the vendors and sent back to Nintendo. Anyway...

    I'm assuming that these cards are recovered, sent back to Nintendo, have the video file changed out, are restickered and then sent back out to vendors for store insertion.

    Any ideas on value? Worst case scenario, it's a free 1GB CF card.

    Hmm I'd say maybe $20-$30? I don't know how much demand there would be on this one. I have a couple of these types of memory cards for PSP kiosks.

    At the very least, rip the video and see if you can encode it down to a more manageable size before selling it.

    I won't be doing that. In this case that to me is like making a duplicate of a game and then selling the original.

    In that case, document the hell outta it. The file contained, the contents of the video, everything. You -never- know when such info will come in handy.

    Nah, in the case of this I'm just looking to flip it to a collector. NFR stuff doesn't interest me like it once did, same with display stuff such as this. Fun group of items to get into collecting but just not for me anymore. Last proto is gone too (was the NES Caesar's Palace that was recently dumped and released).

    Besides, I did document the rarest thing I'll ever come across - didn't have the best camera at the time but my coverage of it should more than make up for the lower resolution images. Still haven't gotten around to writing up the feature but it is on the way. There are, what, like less than 10 of these things known to exist in complete condition...



    ...and yes, I sold it a long time ago. *shrugs* Again, something I was getting out of and really needed the money at the time. No regrets.

    One last bump for inquiry on this before I average the offers and go down the PM / e-mail list.
