    Well my friend just got a m3 Simply and it appears his does not have a spring loaded slot for the MicoSD card. You just slide it on in. Any one else get one like this. Because my spring is pretty much shot and the card get stuck in it. So i wana get a new one but i wana make sure i get one with out the springs.

    Then it is one of the older devices. Someplace else on the weby they said that M3 had too much trouble with the spring loaders.

    I have springs in all my M3/R4 products, no problems here. Maybe take better care of your equipment [​IMG]

    My M3DS real is brand new and it has already jammed on two separate occasions in only a few days. It has nothing to do with care. In fact, the second time, a small black fleck of plastic fell out that I believed was causing it. However, I see online now that many, many, many people have had trouble with it. Also, on one occasion, the microSD card launched out of it and I nearly lost it! If you are pushing to eject, make sure your finger doesn't slip or you will send that card flying!

    I wonder why it FORCEFULLY ejects the mSD card and yet the M3 itself can barely fit the DS (has to be tugged out)? I guess they made it nearly as thin as possible, because the bottom side of the PCB with the Actel chip fits through a casing hole and is only covered up by the M3DS real label. The raised area around the label proves that it's not "as thin as possible" though. Use thinner label paper M3 team!

    Both are manufactured by the same company targeted for different consumers. The R4, M3 and G6 team are all linked

    I take very good care of mine and it still locks up. Im thinking of getting a new one hopefully it is not spring loaded.

    The R4 I got from realhotstuff.com had no spring. But if you are wanting another M3 Simply they are out of stock.

    I don't think it does lock in the card. You should be able to slide it out without pushing IIRC. At least, every time my spring jams I can still slide it out.
