I want to get my flash cart ASAP.. and wanted to buy from discoazul.co.uk

just wondering if anyone dealt with them? and how their experience was?

I emailed them 2 days back, no reply, their live chat does not connect to anyone.. also i tried calling them many times today and everytime i get an automated answer that all our lines are busy, please call later

also seeing my budget and requirements I think this card will be best for me: http://discoazul.co.uk/r4-ds-microsd-engli...crosd-2-gb.html

but i dont want to end up with a brick that doesnt work with my ds..

I have teh Nintendo DS Lite and will be playing games on it only, no readers movies, music etc.

so I was wondering if the card above will work for me and if its compatible with wood r4 (which i guess is the best firmware)

Thnak you

I recommend buying from a store like ZhuZhuChina.com, they are verified on Shoptemp and their prices are very low. You can see all flashcarts, their reviews and shops on Shoptemp. It is the shop-indexer of GBAtemp.

Oh, I forgot to say that the card you are interested in is the card where WOOD R4 was made for.
It is guaranteed WOOD R4 works on that card. However that site is not verified so they might send a clone, but the chance that'd occur is very small.

OK so I finally got my r4 cart today, was super excited so I had an 8gb microSD card in my phone, took it out and plugged it in the r4.. but when I turned on the device it just says loading.. wont do anything else..

Am I doing something wrong here?

Forgive me if I misunderstood but did you format the sd card and put the firmware on it?

hello
original r4 flashcard support only no SDHC microsd, so usually 2 GB
your 4 gb memory probably is a SDHC memory and is not compatibile with this flashcard
ciao!
LOL

Now that is what I call good after sales support. Pity you aren't based in the EU.


On topic - Get your self a non HC SD card.

DO NOT USE DISCOAZUL!!

They seriousley are the worst online company I have come across. I wouldn't say there custome service is bad, it's none existant!? Just pay the little extra and buy from someone reputable. AVOID!

Apologies, it wasn't closed so I thought I would add my input from my experience with the company. It's always best to help fellow buyers I think, you have been warned!
