    i'm shopping for an Acekard, can't decide whether to get the 2.1 or 2i. I just have a DSLite, no plans for getting the DSi. Anyhow, on the realhotstuff site, it has for the 2.1...
    Package includes:
    1 x Acekard 2 cartridge
    1 x USB reader

    for the 2i it has..
    Package Includes:

    1 x Acekard 2i Cartridge
    1 x microSD reader

    By name the readers are different, but are they not the same thing?

    Sorry for the dumb question.

    My Acekard 2i was ordered through Console Source and it included a MicroSD reader. Very convient to so I'm happy to have received it.

    Just so you know, these USB microSD adapters which you receive with flashcarts are all crap. If you care about data, you really should buy a branded USB adapter, or a proper card reader.

    Well, the R4 Original's one was good. Working for 2 years, lol. It is even compatible with SDHC.

    I have received one with my Acekard 2i, it's the tiny retractable type on a string, fully made of cheap plastic. Worked exactly once.

    Realhotstuff gives you a free MicroSD reader.

    None of my DX Acekards came with one. I got one with an Acekard I bought elsewhere, but it does not work reliably. Most computers have an SD slot so I typically use a micro-normal SD adapter; I think I have about 10 of them since every microSD card seems to come with one.

    i didn't get one with my acekard, although they promised it would be in. Got one with my r4i though, which is falling apart. On my last r4ds i got one that was made from steel, and it's still working after 3 years

    Yes, aluminium to be precise. This one is rock-solid, and is compatible with SDHC.
