    (sorry new to this site - hope this is the right spot to ask this question)

    I do a lot of traveling for work, so was looking to pick up a Nintendo DSi to take along for the ride. I've been reading up quite a bit, and have narrowed my choice down to the following two media adapters:


    Both look pretty reliable from what I am reading. Can anyone give input on their preference, likes/dislikes on each?

    Also - I am looking at grabbing a DSi XL. Neither of those cards should have a problem working with the XL right? (I read somewhere the XL had a better job at piracy protection)

    The XL is just a big version of the DSi, it uses the same firmware. Any sayings it has more/better piracy protection are just speculation. However, flash carts are not the exact same size as normal carts, and can sometimes be a bit loose, causing them to lose contact with the pins of the DSi/XL. You can place a few layers of tape on the bottom of the label side of the cart to make that part thicker and keeps the pins in contact.
