    Well, after 2 weeks, my spring broke on my r4. I've heard a lot of people whining about it, so I wasn't surprised.

    My question is this.... why is it a problem? my r4 still works fine, it's just a pain to put new files on my microSD.

    Oops, it's not as broken as I thought... if I squeeze the card a little, it works fine.

    Same with mine. I would advise you yo put tape over the sd slot or else the sd card will shot out.

    Mine too. [​IMG] Although if his spring is broken, there is no reason to put tape over it. If the lock is busted, then maybe tape will be a good idea.

    Is this the spring on the R4 catridge for the transflash?

    If so it would be funny as to see the transflash going flyign accross the room as your playing a game [​IMG] [​IMG]
