things a lot. Nintendo, you crack me up). So if mine seems like anything other than that it must be the upgraded RAM. Right?
It's tough to tell with all the 3rd party stuff out there now...there are 3rd party versions of both the Expansion Pak and Jumper Pak. It used to be really easy to tell. Basically, if it has a red top, there is a good chance it's an Expansion Pak. My 3rd party expansion pak has a red top, but it has the cover plate thing built into it. This isn't a positive way to ID one though, but it should have some type of sticker or part number on it if you remove it and have a look. That will be a pretty sure fire way to ID it. If it's the original Nintendo stuff, Jumper has a purple sticker on top, Expansion has a red plastic top with holes in it.
