    So after 3 years using my original R4 I finally need to buy another flashcard, basicly because the spring inside my r4 just went #@%#%@#% making the sd card not fit anymore. What card should I buy now, I prefer it would have ds-wii connectivity and regular firmware updates.

    Thanks in advance

    Get an R4 if you dont mind using only a 2gb card

    Acekard if you want higher capacity

    Supercard DSTWO if you want GBA emulation and movie play back

    Your choice

    Well I just had a R4 and I don't want it again, since I couldn't connect to wii with it (pokemon battle revolution) and the spring problem.

    The 1:1 R4's don't have springs, so you won't have a spring problem. They will connect to the Wii, as you can use Wood R4. Best of all, they are just $6 from ShopTemp. The last Wood R4 update was on the 20th of September, and updates are frequent.

    Oh I didn't knew the r4s sold now don't have springs, since when did they stop making r4s without springs because my 3 -year-old r4 has one.

    I just ordered a new flashcard last night, after breaking the spring in my original R4 (The SD card kept firing straight out). I'd been wanting a new flashcard for a few weeks and wanted something that supported SDHC. I had been eyeing up the DS2, but after a visit to the gbatemp.net irc channel decided to get an Acekard 2i.
    The main things that swayed me to get the AK2i, instead of the DS2 were:
    • Cost
    • The crappy build quality of the DS2
    • Crappy support for the EZ 3in1
    • AKAIO is (apparently) kept more up to date
    • I'm not going to be getting a DSi, so compatibility isn't a major issue for me and the AK2i can be flashed anyway so no real issue
    • I'd never use the SNES emulator (The screen res is too low to even display the NES ffs!)
    • The CPU has no added value for me

    OP, if you really prefer Wii to DS connectivity then Acekard would be your best bet. Like what PharaosVizier has said, Acekard probably has the worst build quality out of all flashcarts.

    Which to PharaosVizier by the way (since you own a lot of EZ-Flash), would you say that EZ-Flash Vi has a good Wii to DS connectivity?

    I can safely say yes, tried my Gen IV Pokemon games on PBR and it worked just fine.

    The acekard can also have movie play black 0_o just use moonshell, and i think all flashcard scan support moonshell, so all flashcards can support movie playback. Or are u talking about the DS2 DIVX playback that has not been released yet?

    R4 is the cheapest
    Acekard has slightly better compatibility
    Supercard DSTWO if you don't mind the price tag of 40 bucks.
