I am looking for a R4 cart for my DS but will consider other carts.

Would prefer one that comes with a reasonable sized mini SD card

Let me know what you got and price

I would need a USB card reader

Can you offer any sort of price match compairing the amazon (or deal extreme) prices?
#12
I don't know enough about them to really know...it's just something i saw. I haven't read any reviews or anything on them or even know what updates there is.

All i know is that i have version 1.17 and it's been working perfectly fine for me. If you go with amazon and get a working one then spot on, if not then i hope you can return it.
#13
£20 is the lowest that i will sell it for as i can eventually sell it locally for £40+
#14

from the site

*IMPORTANT* We contacted the R4 team and they told us that they DO NOT manufacture this product. We are selling this product due to demand from our customers and we are clearly stating here that this is NOT an official R4 product and therefore we WILL NOT be held responsible or offer any support services if your Nintendo DS is affected in any way.
So far, we've not had any negative reactions from customers who have purchased this item and out of 110 tested in our sample batch, only 1 was faulty. The choice is yours - This is an "R4" card that supports SDHC i.e. SD memory cards that are 4gb or larger.

The R4 ONLY accepts upto 2gb. This is a known FACT. Unless you solder 2 pins on the R4 then i think it can
#18
Strange thing is that if you go to R4 official site is says it can take up to a 4GB card and that they are up version 1.21.
#19
I bought one from the Amazon seller "technet" for about £15 which included the delivery.

Ordered it last Thursday and it arrived this morning complete with 2gb micro card and SD adapter and USB adapter and R4 cartridge.

I've had it working in my son's DS for most of today without a problem.

HTH

hmmmm. If i had a 4gb card i would try it. I have an 8gb which should be here tomorrow i may just stick that in it and see what happens
#21
How about a DSTT card with 2GB memory card, brand new, loaded with firmware so ready for plug and play.

£22 includes recorded delivery.

very very few micro SD's @ 4gb were made (same with normal SD's) that were not SDHC, but the normal standard specification, hense why the official ones "could" support a 4gb card but they were very few and far between, most manufaturers discontinued making them as they had to comply with the sd specification 2.0 if over 2gb.

Some companies still sell normal 4gb sd cards that are not SDHC, but they are hard to find, and i doubt very much that you will find a microSD variant nowadays..

The official site is http://r4ds.cn/ which is on version 1.18. The other sites have copied the layout of the R4 site and put on their own firmwares for the R4 advance, R4 VIII etc. Such as http://www.r4ds-a.com/index-en.php<- Fake, use at your own risk.

Personally i've moved over to Edge carts which at the moment are coming in nice and cheap and do the job nicely, also SDHC compatible. Placed a few orders through Amazon sellers and to start with paid £9.99 + £4.50 P&p for the carts, and £0.01 + £4.50 for 2gb Sandisk memory cards totalling £19.00. Unfirtunately that seller has now put his carts up to £13.00 plus postage, still a decent buy.

I have a R4 boxed with usb adaptor and a 2gb micro sd card. I have had it a while and it has been faultless. I sold the other one on here for £30 a while back and all is working great. http://www.hotukdeals.com/forums/showthread.php?t=139675&page=2.

I would be looking at £21 delivered. I am not in a rush to sell it, its just I dont use it that often so am willing to let it go at what I see as a fair price.

Almost all are fakes but will work for a while. Amazon don't control who sells what on there, if there's a listing for it people will sell it.

Is this genuine? I have heard there has been a lot of fakes going around which are damaging DS's. Does it have a gold spot of this one?

Would you be willing to send first seeing as you are new / no feedback?
#28
Thanks for all the info guys :)

It seems you have to be very careful when buying these carts
#29
This is all bull***t

All these cards are non genuine. How can you get a fake fake.

I have bought for my family and friends DSTT cards, AceKard 2 and Supercard DSOne and all have worked perfectly with 2gb and 4gb shdc cards playing any game.

I personally prefer the Supercard DSOne because the default skin etc is more pleasant than the other two (this can be changed easily but I can't be bothered).

So I would sugest visiting http://www.dealextreme.com/ or http://pcjerry.co.uk and taking your pick. I am sure any will work fine.
#30
I've bought two Edge cards off Amazon.. both have been great.
#31
Guys, gals, I think it goes without saying (well it should do) that no talk of amazon market place is allowed on the FS/FT forum, be careful, a lot of people are being suspended for less niggly things lately.

Market place things should be discussed in the Misc. section but still never used as a price comparrison on this site.
#32
Really? Not heard anything about them before?
#33
Buy an edge card from deal extreme. I have just had 2 of them arrive and it cost me about 25 quid for them both I did currently have an r4 and I do think the edge cards are better..

i believe the DSTT cart to be genuine. I've had no problems in the past. i'll post pics for you to check the cart. Will check for the spot you mention. I wouldn't be able to send first. I would be willing to run the card through eBay (if allowed) so there is a record which protects both parties.

OK. Dont worry with the pics. It looks like I may go for the 'EDGE'

Yes you can have it for £20 if you collect or I can drop it off if you are local. Where are you?
#37
I live in Bedford but I will be at Nottigham Uni for few days in couple weeks time (16th Sept)

Is this a genuine R4 card? All this fake card talk has made me a bit cautious.

If I take this would you be able to deliver it to the Uni for me?

Then it's obvious you aren't aware of fake carts and shouldn't mouth off as if you know it all then!

Yes this is a genuine R4 card all boxed as new. Would be able to meet you in Nottingham when you start. My bro works at Nottingham Uni but at Queens Drive not city centre so best if I meet you in Nottingham. Are you staying in halls? If so I could drop it in. Anyway I will show it to you before you hand over the cash. If your happy I will PM you my mobi number and then you can give me a bell or text when your about. Welcome to the city of women and beer!

What I was saying is none of these cards are made by or endorsed by nintendo hence they are all fake and operating on the very edge of the law so why should you trust the R4 card & website more than any other including "R4 Revolution v2 Card (not made by the R4 team)"
