hey guys/gals

i sent my nintendo ds back to nintendo today to hopefully get fixed as my daughter managed to drop it........when i spoke to them on the phone lastweek the lady said all i need to send them is just the ds, do not need powerpack,stylus,etc so today i walked up to the post office and sent it ,only when i got home i realised i have left the r4 thingy in the back ov it,!!!!!!!do you think this will cause problems with nintendo,is it illegal??im so stressed and worrying over this now so any advice or comments would be really appreciated,thanks paula

technically its not illegal cause they dont know you havent got the original games

the biggest worry will be weather it is actualy returned with the ds cause they tell you not to send anything else simply cause they wont be responsible for them if they arent returned with it

As long as you don't have any illegal games on it you'll be OK...

put it this way-its too late to worry unless you can get it back from the post office if it is still there? explaine to them and if you have the proof of postage they may take pity on you?
i know they are not supposed to but they have given me back before..

You utter dooly.

You're not getting the R4 back quite probably. Nintendo won't be too thrilled when they see it.

Lets face it people. The only use most people have for these carts are for the games. I'd say around 10 people on this forum use DS homebrew. So the OP could stand to be in trouble from Ninty.

Did you have games on the card? If so you may be getting a visit!

DOH! Any games on it???? They could do you just to make an example out of you!!

No it's OK.. Forgot to put the return address on it. :whistling:

Not got 1 of these R4 cards I hear bits and pieces about on here,I think if they that bothered they will drop you in a note when you get it back to remind you that you shouldn't be d/l games etc etc for it.

Unlucky you forgot it was in there,yeh they do say send back with nothing else,surprised they didn't send you prepaid for it all,thats what I got and sent back to me at no charge.

Now that would be a classic! My mate recently moved and returned his 360 with rrod and put his old address on it! Luckily its only the next street along!

Just go out and buy the games you have on the R4..
Then you are totally legal, as you own the originals.

I wouldn't do anything unless you hear from them...They may not even notice it..
What was broken?

Your child swapped something at school for it,and they got the games themselves online and you really didn't know and thought it was some cheat card.

Sorry, but that's, like, well bad!

I know that strictly it's not illegal itself as you could just be using it for backups, but how many people genuinely do that? (Of course Nintendo are up on it)

If it was me that did that, I would be very worried.

I expect that they just won't return it to you - I doubt they would bother trying to prosecute or anything.

Let us know what happens with this, please - do they have internet in prison? :giggle: (sorry)

true but 20 games or so,probably consider some them might be £25 a buy, been better not bothering to get it repaired and just bought a new 1.

Seriously I doubt anything come of it,I think you just get a reminder / warning letter that Nintendo do not endorse illegal downloads etc etc

rockyfella;2058509

Hey, welcome back..LOL...Keep it swear free please........:whistling:



T.Y

I'll try!

Now whenever anyone asks about a repair on DS I will remind them to remove this card thingy before I say what else to do just incase.

Paula, don't let people get you worried more than you should be. They will just ignore it. They are hardly going to call in the police to check whether you have the original games. Sleep easy; anyway there is nothing you can do about it now. And if needs be, you can start thinking of some good lies to tell later... It will be fine.

id buy all the games to save ur ass

hi guys/girls just a quick update about my ds....well ive just got back from work and found a dhl card in my letterbox telling me a parcel has been left with a neighbour so i went to get it and guess what after all that panicing about going to prison for illigal downloading they have sent it me back with the r4 card still in it and a invoice saying thanks for my custom lol and free ov charge also it has been cleaned and works perfectly.....either the workers in nintendo are a dozy bunch ov ******s or god is looking after me lol,anyways thanks everybody im made up now but plz remember if you need to send your ds back for whatever reason plz remove your r4 cards cause you might be as lucky as me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
