    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.

    Over there.
    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.
