    Hello.

    I'm not sure if this is a stupid question, but I haven't got an answer for it.

    I've ordered my son a Nintendo DSi XL which is coming sometime this week. I've never seen one of these and I'm told they haven't got a cartridge slot. I've been reading up on the DSTWO, but why would I need the cartridge if there is no slot? Couldn't I just download the DSTWO firmware, slap it on a memory stick then bobs your uncle? Or am I mistaken somewhere.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Matt.

    The DSi hasn't a slot 2 like the DSLite has to play GBA games.

    The DSTWO is a good choice of card.

    I'm sorry? What do you mean by "It doesn't have a cartridge slot"? The DSiXL has a slot-1 for NDS games of course, and the DSTWO has a MicroSD slot to put games and homebrew on. There are no softmods for any DS system, so you can't just put stuff on a memory stick and have it work. You would put the DSTwo firmware on the DSTwo, make sure it works on your DSiXL, and then put Homebrew/ROMs on the MicroSD card and put it in the DSTwo.

    Pretty much answers my question. I was told it only had an SD slot. But thats cleared that one up.

    If you're asking if you can use the DSTwo's firmware on another cart, no. The DSTwo is different physically and does the special emulation onboard.
