    if you mean where i got it, r43ds.org, though if you look on the fine print on the back it reads in tiny letters "www.r4isdhc.com"

    Would like to warn you that the card you bought is a time bomb meaning it won't work after a year. Your only options are to buy a new one after a year or set you date back on your 3ds.

    Okay. I think as long as you don't use the extra ones you will be fine. Not sure.
    (Never had more then one of those)

    False, these cards are just clones of clones, i got one 2013 up and running, as well as a 2014 and a 2015, 0 issues, there are some, that the kernel has an expiration date, but the fix for them its just rewind the date.
