    Im want to be able to play both NDS and GBA games on my DS and have real time clock (RTC) support for pokemon games on both NDS and GBA. What do I need to get to make this happen?

    It seems M3 and G6 are the way to go but I am worried about compatibility.

    Should I still get an R4 for NDS games?

    R4 for NDS and G6 Lite/M3 Lite for GBA. G6 has a limited capacity of 512 MB, m3 lite uses micro sd cards.

    which you will have to buy separately, 512MB is more than enough for gba roms, thats why i choose it.

    Thanks for the quick reply, what about compatibilty between M3 and G6?

    Also they play DS games too right?

    Why do you suggest I get R4 for DS games?

    M3 Lite and G6 have the same compatibility. The only bad thing about the ez5 Is it can only hold 1 GBA game, thata why I wouldn't recomend it.

    and EZV has no RTC right?

    One more question. If I choose M3 lite, can I use the same microSD card for both R4 and M3? Or will I need to buy 2 of them

    Thanks again for your help!

    Yeah the EZV does not have RTC. You will need 2 micro sd cards, you can find them at newegg.com. There very cheap there, a 1 GB micro sd is only 10 dollars.

    High compatibility and almost perfect with any microSD card. It is also updated quite frequently

    the reason you need an m3simply/r4ds when you pair them up with the slot 2 devices is for both the nds game play and for there passme abilitys.

    and btw heres all you need.http://www.gameyeeeah.com/r4-ds-r4ds-m3-li...card-p-240.html the shipping is alittle steap but its dhl-airmail so it'll get to your house real fast after it hits the usa.

    So the M3 lite is not very compatible for NDS games? It uses microSD too right? [​IMG]

    there both pretty good for nds games but most people use the r4ds for nds games and there slot two device for gba/homebrew. if your just thinking your going to get the m3 lite you'll need a passme card like this... http://www.gameyeeeah.com/m3-perfect-passcard-c-21_43.html
    if you get an r4ds with the m3lite it has the passme card built into it.

    yes they both use microSD cards.

    The M3 isn't that bad at NDS playback. It certainly beats EZ4D at it.

    The only thing which EZ4 beats M3Lite in is GBA playback. Pretty much everything else (other than NDSplayback) is similar. I stand by my previous statement. I think I read about this in the reviews or a friend told me. You could be right though [​IMG]

    The M3Lite PERFECT is, so far, the best solo-solution for all your needs. It uses microSD cards? Heck yeah, definately not a bad thing. The only down side I can think of off hand is the loading time for GBA games.

    One thing about it is that its a slot-2 solution. If you can get a pass device or borrow one to flash your DS then you'll have the greatest thing to happen to the DS since the lite redesign.
