    I have not had problems with the R4DS yesterday I was updating the ROMs inside, storing the save files and erasing the roms, so I could check some of the new ones, now when I try to insert the MicroSD it jumps out, wont stick in and it will work rarely, by this I mean the card will stick in, but its really difficult to get it in, is there something wrong this my R4DS, should I go ahead and open it up to check the little parts and see if maybe there is a problem? Let me know, maybe someone else has had this problem, thanks in advance.

    hey there remember me [​IMG] . This is a common issue with r4s your micro sd slot is more than likely fu**ed up. Theres no way to fix it i dont think. i have heard about people taking the spring out and helping a bit.

    Got all the info needed, even downloaded 2 videos on my PSP [​IMG] so I could watch it while I am repairing it on my GFs house... anyways I think still after this issue the R4DS is still the best out there... I prefer to do this little repair than had to replace a battery inside another card [​IMG]

    Thanks guys!
