    I recently bought an R4 for the ds, only to find out it was a fake, the r4 card is identical to the real ones, no new stickers ect..., but i put my mini sd into someone elses r4 it worked perfectly, the only differance is, at the bottom of the cartridge at the back, mine was just some metal strips, but on my freinds his had copper stripping underneath wich probably connects it all, im not an expert on this stuff but i can tell its a fake, also the disk is differant, everything else is perfectly identical,

    ANYONE ELSE ENCOUNTERED THIS?

    (Also, when slotting the r4 in, it just comes up with a black screen with LOADING... on there in white for ever)

    I don't get it. How can you tell it's fake? You gotta provide more information than that. Include some clear pictures. Did you compare to the images in the announcement about fake r4s thread?

    Toss your R4 to the nearest wastebasket and buy a CycloDS. [​IMG]
