    My R4DS can load Wood R4 and no problems at all, but mine doesn't have a spring loader. Other than that, the colour is the same as a DS cartridge.
    It also doesn't have the name of a site in it.


    It looks like (I don't have a camera)
    ------------------------
    R4 |
    |
    Revolution for DS |
    (NDSL/NDS) |
    ------------------------

    Sorry I couldn't do it well.

    They all are.

    Unless you bought it 5 years ago.

    that's what an original R4 looks like.
    there is an original batch of R4, then there was another production with exact same things. (not a clone)
    I don't think original R4 ever had a spring loader.
    besides, you don't want that anyway

    The first one did. Then they made a version without the spring.

    The official R4 Team produced 2 Versions of the R4,
    v1 has the Spring Loader and was available in Grey and White,
    v2 hasn't the Springloader, was only available in Grey and have 2 identitations.

    Here is an picture of v1:

    ^ This is a pic from 2 R4's and 2 M3 Simply's it's Version 1 of both [​IMG]


    But the guy's which posted before me are right, only R4's which bought 3 years or longer ago are able to be genuine.

    Thanks guys. Now I can peacefully play my DS ROMs without thinking that my R4DS might be a clone or a fake, due to the popping up of fake R4 cards.

    Mine's V2. Yay.
