Did you put the microSD in the right direction? I know that sounds like a dumb question, but we all make dumb mistakes.

take it apart and either remove the spring or attempt to fix it. there are many tutorials in the forums and on google.

I thought that would have been obvious unless its some kind of special new expensive device which modified its physical form according to data.

e.g. a robot, that when you install a new firmware, turns into a hypnotoad

Open up the R4 and take out the spring. Just be careful. Easy. And it's bound to happen to some people, sooner or later.

And, off topic, change that thingy in your sig to DarkAura, not dark_aura Arvina.

Mine's exactly the same, don't worry, I'm sure nothing's wrong with it =P it's
just that ours is more wide o_o and allows more room so it doesn't bounce =] lol... o.o

anyways on topic, I'm glad you got it fixed, I got the same problem with my M3,
I couldn't fix it so I just got a r4 recently =P

Wow. Ive had my R4 for the better part of 9 months, and its safe to say, that I havent had ANY problem with it whatsoever. I REALLY hope my CycloDS Evo (in the mail) is the same way. Better not be a defect like a lot of them are turning out to be.
