    Hello. Quick question here, a friend of mine has a R4 flash card, but there is no slot for a micro sd card. How do you add or remove anything from it? Please let me know. If an adapter is needed, how do I get one? Thanks in advance. [​IMG]

    No slot at the back to slide the sd card in and pull it out?
    Then it's not a R4?
    If you could post a picture of it would be nice.
    Other than that i dont know...

    Quite certain he got the fake R4/NCard clone.

    Sounds like it's actually an N-Card clone, some people were selling those as R4s a while back. If that's correct, it has internal flash memory and you need a USB thingy that goes in the GBA slot to connect it to the computer and transfer files to it. I don't know if you can get the USB thingy seperately.

    Must be a DS link with the R4 sticker pasted on it. Too bad.
    EDIT: Wait, Doesn't DS Link Use Micro SD?!?!

    Also my firend was saying that he used to insert the flash card into the computer, he did not mention anything about linking up a wire to the GBA slot. Hmmmm......

    ferrariman: The DSLink and the DS Linker are two different carts. The DS Linker is an N-Card clone.


    vt102: He probably has something like this: http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.10159

    It's an N-Card clone, but it uses a different type of USB thingy.

    Probably. Looks like it might be similar to that one.

    Yup, that's an N-Card clone. Any N-Card USB thingy should work if you can find one.
