    Fake DSTT?

    Today I received a DSTT cart from focalprice and am having some trouble establishing whether it's fake or not. Anyone out there an expert on the subject?

    My cart doesn't look like any of the ones in the pictures at ndstt.com. It's not got a silver metal microSD reader, it's got a black plastic one which isn't spring loaded.

    It's almost exactly the same as this one: pix.gbatemp.net/110…jpg

    Anybody?

    Does it work?

    Yeah it works fine. I'd rather not run the risk of using a fake one though as I've heard they can blow the DS's fuses?

    I've tried running the dsttflashcheck software but it doesn't recognise the cart (probably because the software predates this particular version of cart).
    Anyone got a link to the official NDSTT fake check software? The official site only has the one used on DSTTi..

    That's good to hear. Was just gonna bin it if it turned out to be a fake as it was only £3.. but might as well hang on to it if it works ok :thumbsup:

    there was lots of stories about them knackering the consoles up, but thousands upon thousands have them and you hear the odd story it has, both my kids have insurance via argos (3 yr replacement warranty) so am happy to use them, but i still believe it was all hype and bull from the originol makers of the dstt

    Wouldn't be surprised if that was the case. Thanks for your info, repped :thumbsup:

    any card probably has the chance of breaking a DS, i have read reports of most cards doing something but the cases are so limited its not worth worrying about.

    the whole "fake" thing can just be ignored its silly - something is made in china, it sells well people copy it job done.....
