    Well, I'm wanting to get a flash cart for the DS (I have a EZFA 256mb for the GBA), and it's time I get something for my DS.. However, as much as I look, I keep finding things for DS Lite. Does anyone know what the best choices are for the old brick DS? Thanks a bunch.

    I would go with an R4. They're great. Read my review here

    Ditto.
    I got a few slot 1 linkers. Both R4DS or M3 simply (same stuff different brand) work nicely (and are cheap).
    Don't forget to get yourself a good ol' made in japan micro sd and you're set.

    I don't really understand... You need a R4 + something to go into the GBA slot? Or do you only need the R4?

    EDIT: Like, can I start flashing games onto my R4 after buying an R4, or would I need some other stuff? Because in your video review, you mention some supercard thing in your GBA slot so... It'd suck having to dish out some more money.

    Also, something I forgot to ask... Do flashed games (on the R4) work fine online?

    By flashed games you mean just games running on the R4 right?
    Yes they should all work online.

    Yeah, like... Do I need anything in the GBA slot? Or can I just flash something to the R4, pop it into my DS, and start playing the game that I just flashed onto the R4?

    I think you're a bit messed up with the "flashing" concept. You don't need to flash anything. It's drag and drop onto the card.
