    Hi,

    I'm in the middle of a Magic V install. I attached all the wires to the modchip, but I can't seem to solder the ground onto the mainboard, it comes right off. Is there an easier way to solder gnd onto board?

    Thanks.

    if you are using the ground trace on the edge of the board its going to require more heat than a normal connection. you should definately use flux this will clean any impurities from the metal. also there are several alternate ground points that might be easier check your diagram
