I've had my flashcard from r4ds.co.uk for a week or so, and today I showed one of my friends. and I've always been aware it's not really an R4, just a new card manufacturer plagiarising an older name for marketing reasons. He said that I was stupid to buy a clone, and that because i hadn't bought a 'genuine' card there would be games i couldn't play, that the card might just one day brick my ds. Is there any foundation for any of this? I mean, the card works great, plays everything I throw at it, works with wi-fi, and download play,and the website for it even just released a new firmware to support 1mb save files for pokemon platinum etc, so it's got developer support (http://www.r4i-sdhc.com/indexe.asp) What exactly is the problem with it not being 'original'? as far as I can see it's better in every respect to the original R4, having SDHC support, and active development. He directed me here (and the r4ds forums, but here seemed more active) so I could 'read for myself' why my card was inferior, but i can see no real reason why, other than it wasn't made by the original team that made the R4, and that doesn't make it inferior, that just means it's newer, and plagiarising a well known name to boost sales. If there are serious problems with these clone cards I'd like to know, because I'd rather go and buy some other card than run the risk of damaging my ds or whatever. Any help much appreciated.
