    How do you guys get out your mirco SD cards? It takes me like 2 minutes to pry it out of the R4, its a little frustrating.

    Its spring loaded, so I just push in and it pops outs. It takes one second.

    It seems to get easier after using it for a while, but yeah it does hang in that little notch thing.

    Just push it in with your index finger or your finger nail and it springs out. I was suprised how small a Micro SD card was when I first saw them..

    ah okay. Its still not perfect, I think my spring isn't working all that great. It doesn't pop out that great, but I can get it down to 30sec. though. Best to just load up on roms and keep it in their for a while. Thanks [​IMG]

    It should'nt take you more than 5 seconds. If you think the spring is faulty, I'm quite sure most retailers will allow an exchange

    LOL I think is more to blame on the R4 external memory card slot design not because the MicroSD is too small hence the name "MicroSD". IMHO I think the R4 team should scrap the Spring Loading design its more hassle to use it for all its worth also the fact the spring might eventually fails like others have reported. The Supercard Lite didn't have any spring loading but it works like a charm. Still the R4 is great. [​IMG]
