    Hey,

    I am going to order a DS flash card for a family of newbies, and I would like to know which card I should buy for them. The DS is used by 7 and 10 year-olds, so the interface and use must be very user-friendly. Extra features such as cheats are not important.

    I myself own an Acekard, but I'm wondering if its interface might not be a bit complicated for kids...

    Suggestions?

    Sakura might be for them. So you would need an m3i zero.

    I gave my 6 year brother an acekard, and he can use it fine. Just don't confuse them with the extra features.

    Dstt's are not updated anymore, so the kids won't be able to play any new games.

    DSTT is really simple, and there are always patches to get newer games to work. That or the original R4 are great options.

    R4 is never a great option and i don't think DSTT is either. Just get them an Acekard/EZ-Flash and as HaniKazmi said, don't confuse them with the extra features.

    Ya, i reccomend an acekard, its really use to use and isnt confusing at all. But u must remind them not to tell any of thier friends or anything that they have a flashcard or get thier games for free, because knowing how children r, if they tell thier friends then thier friends r gonna want it too and r gonna ask thier parents and u never know, one of thier parents might be a cop.

    ^ This, the EDGE cart is great for little kids as it has a strong sturdy ass cart and a non spring loaded microSD card holder. It also has a user friendly menu with three options Games, Media and Settings or Card (I'm not sure which it is lol, haven't pulled out my EDGE in awhile :3). Also I think you can set it to always open on the NDS folder where you store all your ROMs. Also it's seriously dirt cheap and still gets great updates and has an easily skinnable menu.

    In short it's a strong (physically), cheap, up to date cart.
