    I recently bought a DSTT at our local mall. When I opened the package, it only contains the Cart and the card reader. No CD inserted either. Was I scammed?

    I didn't get a CD with mine. Your card is probably real, since there aren't any clones for the DSTT.

    There is some talk on the DX site about fake or shoddy DSTT cards, were the contacts aren't touching the sd card.
    I have just ordered one so hopefully this won't be a fake/shoddy piece of crap.

    THERES several versions .. TTDS on its own

    TTDS with RUMBLE PACK

    TTDS with GBA PACK

    TTDS with BOTH GBA and RUMBLE PACK

    and theres also NEO TOP TOY a kinda OEM version that also can be bought in the versions above .. all the SAME slot 1 card just different SKINS and STICKER on the fronts [​IMG]

    a lot of card makers dont put disks in the bundles as they often need updating on a regular basis so they just put the website on the CARD STICKER or on the BOX/PACKAGE for you to visit and download the latest software build [​IMG]

    I just got my DSTT a few days ago from DealExtreme, and it works like a charm. I've experienced no problems and the contact problem is not present. I haven't seen too many DSTT complaints lately, so you should be just fine [​IMG]

    It's not a fake. Mine didn't come with a rumble pack either, just the flash card and microsd reader. It works fine.

    The rumble and GBA expansion paks that are sometimes bundled with the DSTT are just rebranded eWin rumble and 2-in-1 GBA expansion paks. If you look around, you may be able to find them. Psxboy.com is usually the best place to find the eWin 2-in-1 GBA expansion pak, but it's been out of stock for a long time. I believe the eWin rumble pack can still be had for around $6 if you look around.

    You can also get the EZFlash 3-in-1 which has both GBA expansion and rumble in one cart. Although the rumble isn't as good as the eWin, it's in a single cart and the GBA expansion works just fine with the DSTT. dealextreme.com carries the EZFlash 3-in-1, as do many other stores.

    You'll need to download GBA ExpLoader from the download area to get either the eWin or the EZFlash GBA expansion paks to work with the DSTT since there is no direct support for any GBA expansion built into the DSTT menu.
