Do you mean as in the part that inserts into the console, or inside the cart its self?

If you post a picture then I may be able to think up a solution, I've repaired a lot of circuits in my time when I was fixing TVs and other stuff back in the day. You'll be surprised what can be fixed when others say "no way!"

inside the cart. Here is a blurry photo from my phone...

As you can see, I killed five of the pads and my eyes aren't good enough to see anywhere else to solder to.

here is a less worse photo...

Damn! That's a mass/mess of wires.

Time for a new one?

Me personnaly, I would get some enamelled copper wire, the thin but stiffish wire from a mains transformer will be fine, then trace the track from the break to both end points and then solder just the right length of that wire to those points. You could also scrape the varnish off the track a few millimeters just each side of the break and then solder some of that wire to form a bridge, but if theres any tracks either side of the broken one then you run risk of shorting out.

Not all is lost as long as the components themselves are not damaged.

The problem is the size more than anything, I can't tell exactly where the pads were connected and if I could, my soldering skills aren't good enough to repair the damage.

The cart still works fine though, apart from being unable to use an SD card. So I'm stuck with only one n64 game at a time.

Have you got another identical card?, if so then you could figure out what to connect and where.

nope, if I had another card i'd be attempting to remove the sd connector on that one

if anyone is wondering, im trying to fit an odd n64 flash cart into a regular game case, but the bloody thing uses a weird gba cart adapter for storage. a very odd decision.
