    This is why there's a sticky.

    Be very, very careful with the name or you'll likely end up with a bad cart.
    "R4i Gold" is NOT the same thing as "R4i Gold Plus", for example.

    That's about the cheapest you'll find from a shop that's recommended by people here.

    Buy a dstwo, and you will never regret it. Sure, they are more expensive, but it's definitely worth it.

    You only need wood for the R4i Gold, and it's on the official site.

    The reason people love wood is because it brings R4s up to par with other flash carts. Other flash carts didn't stop updating like the R4 did.

    Wood is not above other flash cart softwares, it's just above what R4s used to have.

    So I'm getting a 16 GB MicroSD amazon and a R4i Gold from digitopz, that's about $9 for the SD and $16 for the R4i. $25 total
    Is digitopz or zhuzhuchina a safe site? Are there cheaper sites that ship from the US that are reliable and take visa or PayPal ?
    Also, are there any better flash carts that are around 15 bucks?

    Ok, on another thread people are tell a guy to get an AceKard 2i from Realhotstuff. I read about AceKard and it sys it has trimming so it removes the crap out of files. Should I just but the AceKard 2i? My intention is to buy A flash card thr works for my ds lite but i can still use it on a 3ds if I decide to get one next year.

    The acekard 2i is a good card but the DSTWO is a better card, it totally depends on your budget, i would say the DSTWO is probably more likely to be fixed sooner by the Supercard team for the future 3DS updates than the acekard.

    The DSTWO is double the price of an AK2i or R4i Gold, what's so special about it?

    I would get it but it's too expensive, I'd have to buy a lower capacity sd card to fit my budget, unless you can find me a cheap and reliable seller In the us.
    That would be great!

    I did say it depended on your budget, if i was you i would get either the acekard 2i or the R4i that Rydian suggested
