    I've just received a new R4DS. I notice that the cardreader is a complete new one.
    It looks very nice(aluminium), but is it good?

    My previously one melted my micro sd [​IMG]

    Are there some daredevils to try it with a 2gb micro sd?

    Could you take a picture of it ? The aluminum one came with the first samples of M3 Simply or R4 I think...

    Why don't you people just use DSFTP ? It's a tad slow but still better to save one more thing to loose under the piles of papers on your table [​IMG]

    Because it would take 8hours to fill a 2gig microsd card and 99% of microsd card readers work fine.

    That doesn't look like new reader to me. The black transparent dual-pyramid one is the newest I think.

    The two I have are the little black ones. One from when the R4 still included both the white and black cases. The same one was included on the R4 ordered around the 1st week of Feb. Both of mine a English R4s.

    So, i tried it with a 1 gb. You know, curiosity killed the cat.

    That thing is good, no problems at all.

    In the package: a strap, cd and no spare case. It looks like this is the new batch.
