    well my memory card sticks in fine but to take it out i have to pull it out manually instead of pushing to use the springs. is there a way to fix this easily?

    thanks

    Hmmm..I often see a lot of people with this problem, I myself have never had it though...

    I guess you could try getting a really small screw-driver and open your R4 and try to fix the problem, or you could just leave it. so what? you will just have to pull instead of push.

    Does your R4 even have a spring? The redesigned version does not have a spring loaded microSD slot.

    I have an old version R4, and I took the spring out when I had the same problem. There's tons of Youtube videos on how to do it.

    Why would you bother? my spring broke months ago and i much prefer the manual pull out option, rather than the springs 'will it, won't it' sketchiness.

    Seriously, does the spring have any real benefit?

    Well one time on my old R4, it launched my SD card across the room.

    Is projectile launching abilities a benefit?

    Well, you probably could take out someone's eye with a MicroSD as a Projectile.
    Use it for good.. [​IMG]

    You really don't have to remove your spring, until it starts screwing up, that is.

    It always pushed my Micro SD card out slightly while playing games, making them freeze. Just take the spring out, it's nothing but trouble.

    The spring pushed out the MicroSD by itself? Wow, you must've had one screwed up spring then.
    I've never had spring problems on my old R4DS. I have a new, springless one, so I don't have those troubles.

    It happened when I touched it accidentally when playing, or when I put it in my pocket and take it out a while later to see a frozen screen.
