    Ok I just ordered this because of the low price, but now I'm seeing a bunch of thread talking about fakes and bricking DS's and etc., so now I'm worried. It hasn't been shipped yet so I might have a chance to get a refund.

    TL;DR

    Might be fake, idk need help plx

    and the link isn't working, but if you go to www.priceangels.com and search "R4 SDHC" it should be the second one.

    and it would look like this

    Your DS system should be fine using it, though good luck with getting a rom to work on it.

    It's fake because it says SDHC on the box.

    No but R4 aren't very good for new games, they almost always need patching which is really annoying, I used to have 1 until I got my DSi then got an AK2i.

    alright, thanks for the help, maybe i'll just return and try for the acekard

    so is the acekard much better for this? since I heard the R4 team is pretty much dead.

    Acekard is a hell of a lot better there are developers who work on it like Normatt who makes AKAIO. R4 is pretty much dead now yeah.

    I'm using r4i from http://www.r4i-best.com/

    tried using a different firmware, got a msg that my r4 card is fake.....................

    anyway it works fine with the firmware, just takes a HELL of along time to create a save game.

    I don't think WoodR4 works on SDHC clones.


    Also, 1 1/2 lines being "TL;DR" and using "plx" make your post sound retarded.
