    Question to all members who have traveled on planes with flashcarts in your possession: Have you ever had trouble with security? Or am I just being overly cautious?

    (this is probably the wrong place, if so, I apologise...)

    Eh, it was fine when I did it. Your just being paranoid then again I only had one and it was inserted into my DS since taking your entire game library would be a pain.

    Thanks. In hindsight, this would have been better suited to Ask GBAtemp...

    The question is how are they going to tell if you have a flashcard or not?

    here
    X-ray.
    The distinct shape of a microSD card in a Cartridge.
    But, not, never, not once I had trouble with Security with a flashcart. Even in Japan, the don't give a crap to whether you have a flashcart in your DS.
    I know this from personal experience.

    My experience.
    Airport security, (talking about my DS): "Say, is that a Gameboy?"

    If you do get caught, they'll probably just confiscate it.

    I was being sarcastic, honestly you have to be way to over paranoid to even think of this question.

    I had to hop 4 times through security check points when I was going to the US and not once did they ask about the DS, although they made me take everything out of my backpack and turn on my computer to prove that it worked.
