    I bought this R4 card off of http://www.ctrlgames.com/ around December (Christmas present to myself).

    Anyways, from what I read, it seems to be an authentic R4 DS v2 card and it does not have a spring in the Micro-SD slot

    Here's some pics of the box, R4, and accessories (pictures taken on my iPod touch, if they are too blurry I can upload some taken with my digital camera):

    I'm hoping someone can tell me if this is an authentic card or a fake??

    Thanks in advance!!

    EDIT:
    I bought it from here:

    1:1 clone of the original, but works exactly like it. It's fine.

    It's probably a 1:1 clone. That means that is fucntions as a legit R4 but was produced recently. I could be wrong though and it may be an original production.

    So, is it worth using??

    What's the downside of a 1:1??

    Does that mean that it is authentic and just manufactured recently??

    It's not "authentic" in that it wasn't made by the original team at the original time, but it works.

    Think of it like a re-printing of a book.

    It doesn't matter.

    The original has not been produced in years. What you have appears to be a direct copy, so it'll work the same.
