Well, I would probably recommend that you read the Reviews in the Reviews section of this site. Also, practically all of the current generation Flashcarts play almost all games with no problems (any incompatibility is almost always fixed swiftly by the developers, for the good cards that is). The only cards to stay away from are the R4s and the R4 clones.

Nowadays, unless you want to play GBA ROMs/The NDS Browser/use Rumble you only need a Slot-1 Card. I think all the big current flashcarts will do what you want (i.e. CycloDS, Supercard DS ONE, M3DS Real, Acekard2, EZ-Flash V Plus, DSTT etc.), it's just a case of how much you want to pay, and what you think of each card from the reviews (the appearance of the case/position of MicroSD slot/opinions of build quality/the user interface).

SDHC compatability means its supports certain micro sd cards with the hc logo on it. Those cards are typical faster and have a larger memory.

The automatic DLDL patching is unimportant. Every card does it and its got to the point where it doesnt really matter for a user such as yourself.

another question...
if im buying a supercard DS one as slot1
and as slot 2 i buy EZV 3in1
is there any connection between the two ?
for example there are games such as pokemon that can trade stuff from GBA games to NDS games
will that be possible ?

DLDI is the method that lets a single *.nds homebrew file work on every single homebrew device out there, no matter how the flash cart interfaces with the microSD card and the code behind it. Automatic DLDI patching means you don't have to manually patch a homebrew file on the PC before putting it on your microSD card.

buy an acekard 2.1 and an ez flash 3-in-1. you can play both the DS games (on acekard 2.1) and GBA games (1 game at a time in NOR mode in ez flash 3-in-1)

your case is complete.

Im not familiar with supercard and i dont have an acekard 2.1 but will buy it.

you also need moonshell homebrew to use media files such as mp3.

    Well, can't you just select 'Don't recommend channel' so that YT wouldn't keep recommending them?
