    Hello,I'm new here and I'm barely going to try and learn about these cards so I have some simple questions for the more experienced users here.

    What are your recommended sites to buy the card?

    Has the "forbidden game" problem been solved? The most I've read was that it was an isolated case.

    The best place to buy it in my opinion would be www.realhotstuff.com They have cheap two day shipping and the acekards usually come with a microSD card. As for the other thing, I don't know.

    Do you know if it comes with a reader, or will I have to get one on my own?
    Thank you, and the deal looks good by the way.

    No prob. =) If you ordered it today, It will ship early Monday and get to your home on Wednesday. =D



    EDIT: If you ordered it berfore 2:00 on Monday, it would ship out the same day. Thats why I like them.

    I don' think that the forbidden games gave been solved but I recommend another card reader of the things I've heard the acekard one can actually break your micro sd card.

    I still use my AK card reader and it works perfectly...

    Though you could order 1 or 2 from dealextreme if you are worried

    Ive dealt with Realhotstuff for all my ds/dsi flashcard needs. If you live in the US, they seem the best to buy from.

    Ive bought several flashcards for the ds from them over the years, M3 simply and the M3 Real and they all still work perfectly. As mentioned above they ship extreamly fast.

    I just ordered an Ackard 2i with 4 gb kingston last night for my wifes matte black DSI.

    Even if they state speed doesn't matter, I'd recommend at least 6 (some faster cards seemed to have problems).

    I think I got lucky, I've got a speed 8, 8GB ... still some room to spare. Transcend brand :?

    I wouldn't pay too much attention to those "forbidden games", from what I've seen it's only 3 cards/people and most other people can't get theirs to crash even when trying. I'd suggest just to try it out, in the rare occasion it actually does crash: send it back for a replacement.
