    Sorry about posting rather frequently, I'm just getting in DS collecting and have quite a few questions so sorry about that.

    But I recently bought some R4 cards which look oddly different to my R4 card (looking cheaper/different screw) I also was thinking about buying Super Robot Taisen OG saga but didn't know if this was real... or not (this is just from ebay so I dunno)

    Then the R4 cards

    Thanks a lot if you know, I'm looking to get into collecting and such because i'm trying to build my collection of unique games and cards without getting the bad stuff.

    The R4 looks legit. The game card looks fake basing on the print.

    The R4 looks legit to me. If it has a spring where you put the microsd card it's 100% legit.

    I don't feel a spring myself, the card isn't flush inside though (pops out just a little bit)

    It's probably one of the later re-models post 2009 then. Still legit.

    Brilliant thank you, I was worried that it could break easier or something.

    On the opposite. The spring can get worn out after a few uses, which is why they (and most of flashcards at that time) removed it :)

    Ah, I hope that doesn't happen but if it does what would probably be the better option to get? DSTWO?

    Removing the spring is pretty easy:


    But, as I can understand, your model doesn't have one. You should be fine.

    What screw does the DSTWO need (the screw in the bottom right when flipped) since I'm probably getting one for my 2ds but Its missing a screw.
