    I don't know if this is the correct place to ask this and along with that I'm probably just being very paranoid but I'm currently living in South Korea and will be heading home for the holidays to the US. I have bought a bunch of r4 cards for christmas presents will I have any troubles bringing those through airport security in my carry on bag? If so would it be better to put them in my checked luggage? Thanks so much in advance. And you all have a wonderful holiday.

    I don't think there would be any problem bringing them carry-on. I have brought my DS on lots of times, and thats really all those will look like to them.

    No problems at all, I've flown both to USA and Japan with my flash cards and no one cares at all.

    I have brought it along for flights but if you're bringing a bunch then I'm not sure

    Yeah. How many is this "bunch"? If it's like a hundred then you're gonna have problems if Customs stops you.

    I had 3 flash cards with me the last time, but by a bunch I guess he means 10+

    Well, if it's around 10 there's no problem since you can say they are gifts. If it's a lot than that you would have a hard time convincing Customs that you're not bringing them in to sell. US Customs are pretty strict from what I heard. They have the rights to crowbar your checked luggage if it's locked.

    Also, why R4s? *facepalm*

    Carry on-bags are scanned for liquids and weapons. They don't care about video games (unless there's a bomb in them), and they won't even be able to distinguish between flash cards from real games.
