    DO. NOT. BUY. FIRECARD. EVER.

    Why on the earth did you considered Firecard?!?!?!?

    Yes, I'm using CAPS and overuse the marks in shock.

    The Firecard is alright, the EZ V PLUS probably be best from those two.

    whats wrong with a firecard? theyre less expensive, and you dont have to buy a separate microSD card. and so far, all games i tried have worked, and i have a 2GB one and it has plenty of space to store my games. i dont have an EZ-Flash V, so i dont know how good it is, but i know it needs a microSD card. and i havent had corruptions so far, well besides one but that was because of a bad rom dump.

    I had a FireCard and it died on me after only 3 months. I always had problems with it. Don't pick this card if you are not experienced in flashing scene.

    EDIT: Zelda doesn't work on Firecard.

    I'm sorry, I've never had a nice experience with FireCard.

    Both carts and microSD carts are so cheap nowadays that having onboard memory is a quite small advantage, considering the disadvantages it carries.

    I've changed the save setting, updated the firmware and did all the possible way on how to get it working.

    No. Don't buy firecard.

    EZ flashV is the better choice. IMO

    thanks guys - why am i limited? well i ended up having both in my hands due to some busted deals (and LONG shipping from Dealextreme). Now I must choose which to sell and which to keep. I think I'm going ezflash plus.

    If anyone wants to buy the DS firecard (which has worked well thus far) - pm me.

    Ive got both flashcarts and I prefer my firecard, i thinks its easier to move info to and fro, had many more problems with the ez flash V plus after awhile I gave up on it, once you set the firecard up it works with no problems.

    get the firecard! it's corrupted for me a few times, but it is easily fixable. YOU CAN'T BREAK THE FIRECARD UNLESS YOU PHYSICALLY CRACK THE CARD!. you also don't have to buy seperate memory. i reccommend the 2g version. it's just the right amount of space . you can store about 40 games on it, depending on size. not to mention some vids for moonshell.
