    I don't. I actually prefer to just put it into an SD adapter and put it into my built in card reader instead since most of my USB slot is occupied

    Would regular stores such as Futureshop, Bestbuy, Wal-Mart sell a microSD reader?

    Alright. I'm just kind of pressed with money as of now and someone is selling me a DS Lite for $30 so i'd rather buy that than buy a reader. The DS is in perfect condition just FYI, although it is stolen >.>.

    No, it sucks but I don´t have another one so I find a way to make it work:
    I plugged into a USB 1.0 hub and it works [​IMG]

    But at USB 1.0 speed [​IMG]

    The bundled reader is my only reader, my problems so far. I've had it for 1.5 months.

    I got a new black nintendo ds lite for $40. [​IMG] I already have a white one. But I'm gonna sell the white one to my friend ... and keep the black one ... cuz I sorta wore out the white one already.

    And oh yeah ... back to the topic. I use my reader all the time with no problems.

    $40! How? I have other ways of reading my Micro SD but the bundled reader is the easiest for me. I have used it since Jan 3rd with no problems with my M3 DS Simply.

    I found it in those Toronto classified ads online. craigslist/kijiji ... i forgot which one. Well, it was really for $80 ... including two retail games ... but I sold the two games for $40 online ... so that makes the DS Lite $40. [​IMG] And yeah, I have an SD card reader on my printer ... but I prefer using the bundled reader.

    Nope, I used it a couple times to prove it works, but my internal 42in1 reader is faster.

    I have the black one with the 2 pyramids on it.

    The blue one (1st gen?) killed a microSD of mine. I'm now using a $9 SanDisk MobileMate.

    WOW! WOW! WOW!

    theres this guy actualy talking about how he's going to buy a stolen DS and then this other guy talking about he also would like to buy a stolen DS because of the color (?!) in a public forum...
    i didnt quote it to give you both the chance to edit your posts - and better yet: your retarded minds

    but the worst part about this is that everyone else just ignores this and only talks about card-readers!
    a truly retarded world we live in [​IMG]

    and just because i see this coming:
    no its not the same to "backup" games from a big wealthy company and to steal a gameconsole from a kid

    My wife and I both have R4's with the clear gray microSD readers ("two pyramids"), and they both perform amazingly well. I've tried readers from other flash carts, plus several store-bought ones and those ones built into PC's, printers, etc. The R4 reader is the fastest and most reliable of the bunch, and it has never overheated, not even if I do a full format followed by filling the 2GB card with roms. I have zero complaints with this reader.
