    Sometimes the microSD doesn't stay in the slot and I have to try a few times to get it to 'click' and lock in. Is this a common problem?

    And is the problem only with R4s or other ones as well?

    I have that problem too. Sometimes, when I was playing halfway, the screen jus freeze. I tink is cos my SD is loose from the R4 ...

    No wonder many people switch to DSTT for its spring out MicroSD function ...

    It's about time for you to upgrade! For a great cheap cart, I recommend the Acekard2. If you're willing to spend a little extra for a great GUI and excellent GBA support, go with the M3DS Real. If you want the top of the line cart and money is not an issue, the CycloDS is for you.

    On my old M3 Simply (my girlfriend is using it at the moment), spring was firm and solid, never had any problems with it (and I still don't)..I prefer spring loading mechanism, over springless carts..With spring mechanism, I don't have to take my cart out of NDS..

    Also, moved to appropriate section!

    I have the problem sometimes (rarely). now my MicroSD spring is broken. So i have to gently put the MicroSD in.

    Almost never happens to me, and by the way, my R4 works great, but what is the best card, that can read more than 2GB memory?

    The best I assume you mean: The greatest compatibility and most options.
    That would be the Cyclo DS.
    Its in my opinion the best cart out there for NDS. (for now)

    It's odd i seem to be the only one with an R4 card that doesn't have anything wrong with it.
