    I have ordered DS-Link, and am eagerly awaiting its arrival

    Can you just clear something up for me, I have a 1 GB microSD card for it already, but will I need a bigger card to play 1024mb (1gb) games, as some of the card I am guessing is taken up by the GUI and moonshell etc?

    Or do the games placed on the card take the same amount of space as a pc file i.e. around 128mb for a 1gb rom

    Hope I explained myself properly

    You (like many others) are getting your measurements mixed up.

    There is 1 GB (upper case G and B) meaning Gigabyte and 1 Gb (see that little b) meaning Gigabit.

    There are NO DS games atm bigger than 1 Gb (128 MB).

    So your last statement is correct appart from the units used, remember B = byte and b = bit.
