I recently put an USB OTG cable for Samsung Galaxy Tab and a tiny microSD card reader into a LEGO brick. This is the connector I use:

And this is the look of the tiny microSD reader:

I took it apart:

And solder it to the connector:

Here is the final look:

The top view of the connector:

Compare its size to a 5-in-1 USB memory card reader:

Please repost the pictures
It sound like an interesting design. The pictures however are not visible. I googled the thread title and an alternative link also had the images missing. Please repost them if possible.
