    Look at this picture i just took of the USB MicroSD reader that came with my R4DS. Everyone else seems to have a see through coloured plastic one.... Does this mean mine is fake? I hope its not! I mean, it has worked fine, and will continue to, i hope, but i would hate to have a fake one! [​IMG][​IMG]

    You forgot to put the pic in your post. I wouldn't judge whether or not your R4 is kosha from the USB reader, the R4 team have used a few different types of readers since they first started selling the R4DS.

    The fake ones have built in memory, and the R4 has come with lots of different typs of card readers anyway. They probably just use the ones they can find cheapest at that time.

    Can't see ur image, but the latest usb readers are black and silver and have MicroSD USB2.0 written on them.

    hope that helps.

    I have that Micro SD Card reader.

    You have NOT got a fake R4.

    People have the 'see through coloured plastic one's' because they got the 'early' batches, the R4 change the stuff from time to time hence the reason you, me and mostly more new people who got a r4 have that reader/writer.

    Good, thanks for the help.

    I think it looks nicer than the see through colour ones.
    No offence to people with those. [​IMG]

    Yeah, the see through ones look horrible and it is said that they can damage your Micro SD Card.

    but the new ones are more stable.

    I got a clear plastic one with my M3 simply & it sucks.

    MAkes a horrid crunchy sound when I put the micro SD in. Im convinced it'll kill the card one day.

    That's too bad... But why don't you buy a cheap SD reader and use your adapter that came with the MicroSD card?
