You know on the recall thing (if you find a link) you don't need to prove to anyone that you have a slimline, or that you need the free cable at all.

Every now and the nif I leave it on too long my sister's wireless dance dance revolution mat doesn't work and it has to cool but otherwise it is awesome.

svalbard 04-08-2006 03:19 PM

corim123 12-08-2006 10:57 PM

Well jsut the mat. But I have to let the whole thing cool down. I got my adapted 2 days ago. But then I checked again and saw it was exactly the same. lol, free cord that I don't need. If anybody wants I'll sell it to you new in package.
