    My R4 came with the metal card reader and I have had no problems with it. I have used it tons of times.
    Transflash is microsd yes.

    Yes transflash is microSD. Looks like a decent reader, but it's quite expensive for just a USB reader :S. The one that comes with the R4 should be enough though - they've mostly mixed the reader problems so it's much rarer to receive a dodgy card reader.

    i use the black transparent one with little lumps and its worked fine for months. it lasted longer than my R4 did [​IMG]

    i put it through the washer AND dryer. it still works.

    also, am i supposed to format the microsd card before i use it?
    Is there any to do/not to do things i should know about microsd cards. and how to back up saves?

    To anyone who has that reader, is it neccesary to install the transfermate program, what does it do anyway?

    no formatting necessary. nothing to "not do" really, pretty self explanitory.

    and u shouldnt need to install any programs. unless ur on like...windows 95
