    I have an R4, and it's great... however, I'm also looking for a good flashcart(up to par, or higher, of R4 in terms of compatibility) that doesn't use a microSD. Mainly I want something simple, no need for anything advanced... as long as it can play roms.

    Is there anything like this? And if so, does it come with whatever is needed to connect it to a computer?

    The G6 DS Real or Acekard RPG (both onboard AND microSD slot) could fill your needs. Reviews

    The G6 Real isn't available any more. The only other slot 1 flashcart I can think of that has internal memory is the N-Card and its clones.

    Inconsistant. It's good if you get a good one, it's not good if you get a crappy one (mainly save problems).

    I'd really recommend going with a microSD based cart. You've got a lot more choices, and they tend to be more reliable.

    I was just hoping to find a cart that is suitable for a younger player, and not worry about losing the microSD or something.

    Why not look for a cart that has a side loading micro SD slot such as the EZV? Makes it harder to lose if you don't take the cart out of the DS. [​IMG]

    Or something that at least doesn't use a spring loaded microSD slot (CycloDS Evolution, EDGE, etc.)

    Hmm... the EZV looks good, side loaded and no spring.
    Any recommendations of where to find one legit? I'm looking at DealExtreme right now.

    You could always go with the DS-X [​IMG]

    I kid, i kid.

    Please disregard this post as anything useful. I just felt the need to be a dick. That is all.

    (oh man... DS-X... whew...)

    DealExtreme.com is legit. They're slow shipping wise, but you'll rarely find a lower price.

    If you're getting a new EZ-V make sure you get the EZ-V Plus. Same cart, only it can use SDHC memory cards.

    Gambia, The
    you may get a package with a EZFlash 3-in-1 expansionen, which allows you to play GBA games, use the DS browser and let your DS rumble.

    Afaik the EZ V+ with the 3-in-1 deals are cheaper than buying it seperatly later

    Dealextreme is legit, i bought two EZ - V from there, one for me, one for a friend.

    And since your order will be relatively pricy for dealextreme, they give you a tracking #, so just because of that, it gets to you a bit faster. My usual orders from dealextreme take about 15-16 days to get to me. When i order a larger amount, or something like a flashcart, they give me a tracking # and it takes less time. I just ordered a Ez V Plus from them and it took about 7-8 days to come here.

    The DS-Linker is also a cart that doesn't use micro sd cards.
