Huh? Wheres the infrared port?

I compared the top of my Pokemon Diamond and Pokemon HeartGold carts, and they look exactly the same, I thought Heart Gold has an infared port on the top of the cartridge to use with the pokewalker?

It's there. On the top of the cartridge, if you look really closely, you'll see two small, shiny rectangles right above the seem where the top piece of plastic meets the bottom piece.

HG's cart should look a fair bit different. If it doesn't, you might have a counterfeit game.

Just try to connect to the walker and see if it works.

Yeah, it's there, right along the seam on the top edge. It's tiny, which is why the range on the thing is so minuscule. But that's good because it makes the battery last longer.

Look at the two games in the light and you'll realize there's a red film around the HG/SS game on the inside.
That's the IR.

Why would one look different than the other?

I honestly can't see any difference between my HeartGold and my Diamond cart other than my HeartGold cart is black and my diamond cart is more grey-colored.

I can kinda see the inside of the HeartGold cart's circuits from right below the edge of the label though on the front.

But there is no way it can be a counterfeit, it was a preorder from GameStop and it came with everything, including a valid code to register it at Nintendo's site.

I just.... can't find the IR transceiver.
