    Which one should I get?
    What website should I but it from? - I was going to buy it at dealextreme.com for low prices. - So if you got a flashcard was it fake or real
    Which cheat files should i use? - For example xml,dat, or .cc
    Can you put all the pros and cons for each card? - Please
    What format should should micro SD card be I have a 8gb Sandisk one?
    Is their goiing to be a Cyclo DSi flashcard? - Because I have the Nintendo DSi

    Get an Acekard 2i. It's vastly superior, I'd say, to the DSTTi, but only if you use the AKAIO firmware. You can use any type of cheat file with AKAIO. You can find them in the gbatemp cheat database.

    Just a few threads down, somebody already did a comparison. You should really search a bit before asking.

    We don't know if there's gonna be a CycloDSi, but I'm assuming there will be some day. Chances are, though, that it'd be pretty expensive. As far as SD cards go, it just depends on how much you think you need. For me, 4GB is barely enough, but I tend to use up all the space on just about every device I own...

    Pretty expensive .... might be around $70-80 [​IMG] (my estimate) Acekard 2i all the way! .cc files are cheat files? Pretty sure they only store what cheats you are using per game. IMO use usrcheat.dat. Your format question makes no sense to me. You should probably buy from rhs or gbg since some guys are making fakes/clones of the hw:44 versions and it would be easier to talk/send things back to them incase.

    Oh and for the DSTTi its un upgradeable meaning since 1.4 firmware came out for the dsi it can't be used ever again apparently. Then again you really don't have to update the dsi firmware unless you want some dsi ware/dsi games/hybrid games.

    Damn your estimates way off, even the cheapest price for AK2i and DSTTi were less than $25 on DX of course like always free shipping.

    Now AK2i is down to $12 or $13 which used to be the price of the AK2.1. DSTTi cheaper, it's at $10.

    Just get the AK2i, PLEASE. I have a DSTT and I wouldn't recommend it, at all.

    Im going to get the AceKard 2i, because I dont want to upgrade to 1.4 on my DSi.
    I'll just wait for the CycloDSi too.

    if you want a cheaper card, get the acekard 2i, more expensive for better features, get the m3i zero all the way. Even tho the acekard2i has upgradable bootflash too, it needs another dsi or ds or dsl to power it to flash. But choose whatever one you want. [​IMG]

    DSTTi is a DEAD product (90% dead)

    ak2i is the no brainer selection [​IMG]
    but make sure you use AKAIO

    however, if you are getting a flash cart for your DSi
    i would recommend WAIT and SEE
    thanks to the 1.4 update
