    Found this on DX F-Card. I think it just a N-Card(hence the name) with a Slot-1 reader(like ahtin previously made a thread about)

    Pretty Cool. The N-Card series are great cards, they have everything except Cheat support, with no slowdown.

    So yeah, great that they no longer need a slot-2 reader.

    This was discussed a while ago on yyjoy. It is just an N-Card with a reader that looks identical to the G6 one (note that the reader ahtin was talking about did not look like that). Perhaps there can be some modification done to the G6 reader to make it read N-cards.

    Soo.. would this infamous writer allow for faster writing to the card, as opposed to the Slot-2 loaders of other N-Card clones. Are there any other differences between the F-card and Dealextreme's numerous other N-Card clones such as the DS Fire Link or.. well.. the original N-Card?

    I'm thinking about getting one of the above as a backup solution in case my R4 ever fails on me. Any recommendations?

    The only difference would be that they added the slot 1 reader. Transfer speeds will most definitely improve. I don't think there will be any internal/hardware differences, unless they recently added something which stops firmware changing

    that looks like a pretty sweet deal. The main reason i chose other cards over ncard type cards in the past is becasue of the slot two reader. and the slot one reader hasnt been readily available for a while.

    I've ordered one just for the heck of it. I'd be happy to report about quality and writer speed in about two weeks, if anybody cares.

    Shouldn't this be moved to the N-Card subforum btw, considering that this is obviously yet another clone?

    What about the firmware ? Since it doesn't have the disk writer slot2, how will it be updated ?

    Looks like a G6Real clone to me.

    Or a DSLink. I honestly don't know. [​IMG]

    The writer, though showing clear similarities with the G6DS real, isn't the same when looking at the PCB. You can see (yay for the transparent plastic [​IMG]) that there are several (two anyway, one is pretty big) ICs on the F-card writer whereas the G6DS only has 1 small IC;

    Ooh.. that looks cool. Can someone tell me the compatibility rate of the NCard/FCard? Is it 100% and does download play work?

    does that mean that the F card is supported by all the Ncard firmware up to date?
