    My R4 spring is ruined and now i cant insert my Micro SD card anymore.
    So im gonna buy a new card and im thinking of either an Acekard 2(ver 2.1) or SCDS1(ver 3.0)

    So can you tell me the good and bad sides of each of those flashcarts?

    Also how is the build quality of each card and do they fit perfectly into the ds slot(by perfect i mean like a game cart)?

    Since both are them are spring loaded like the R4 how good is the spring, does it break fast like the r4?

    Does these cards firmware fix games with piracy prevention methods(like DQV),or do i need to patch them myself like with R4?

    First of all, i would go for the acekard2i or SupercardDSOneI cards, you never know if something is going to happen to your old ds and you decide to buy a dsi console... .
    I now own a itouch2 , wish is great, however i also preordered the above said cards, so i don't really know wich is the best. Acekard with AKAIO is propably the best bett (atleast userfriendlyness), however supercard has the options to have a realtime guide and realtime save, and also has the reputation to have 100percent rom support.

    I like the real time features of the SCDS1.

    However i read that for SCDS1 i need to make a cheat file for each indiviual game.

    And this card needs a file with data on each game save size or otherwise it cant save.
    Which is kinda troublesome because if a new game comes out i need to wait until the SC team updates this file before i can play it

    Also i saw that some cards have a battery problem(something about psram).

    Is all this trouble worth it because of the real time save,guide and cheats or should i just get an AK2?

    scdsone i is a decent card!
    if possible why not get both [​IMG]
    one for the game compatibility and solidness
    one for the features and the usb firmware writters

    wireles,
    for your info not everyone speaks english and i don't think you get what i am trying to say
    that also makes me wonder why are there so many english speakers playing made in ore (J) ?
    I will also assume many of us who doesn't speak japanese would play kingdom hearts (J) before the english is out
    ya.. what happened with MLRPG3 (J) ?

    WEIRD?

    anyway back to topic, whether a game is in english or japanese or whatever language
    all we want is a TEAM SUPPORT! Thats what Team AKAIO is providing!

    So is it it true that i have to make an individual cheat file for each game and have a file with save file sizes for each game in SCDS1?

    And is the psram issue only on a few cards or is there a high chance of me getting a SC with a bad battery?

    Good to know [​IMG]

    Now about this psram issue how common is this defect?
    Also is it supposed to happen(incase the battery is defected) in the first couple of days or it can even happen after a couple of months?

    Tnx for the help.

    btw i read your SCDS1 vs CycloDS Evolution comparison.
    I might get a CycloDS now since it also has real time save and guide like SC, although its more expensive.
