    I just got a DS Lite and I have been looking at the 1 million different products for slot 1 and 2 'stuff'
    Need some help as its really confusing figuring some products are the same just different names or they included rebranded things etc etc.

    I really want an all in one package that:
    Comes with the slot 1 and 2 cart
    Patches the home brew automatically.
    (hipefully) can play NES,GB,GBC, GBA, SNES.
    Ability to use other emulators. (for above reason)
    Easy to use (meaning I 99% of the time things will just work)
    The flash carts wont stick out of the machine.

    Any input would be great.

    Also,

    Where are good places in the USA that you can order said product from? I was looking at nxpgame.com

    Umm, I'd go for the Top Toy DS. Sounds the most user friendly, "It-all-comes-in-one-package-esque".

    From what I see it only comes with the rumble pack (which I really don't care about) and not a slot 2 flash card.

    I'm looking at dealextreme.

    M3Real
    EZV+3in1
    TTDS

    R4+EZ 3in1 is also good choice

    Ok, the picture at dealsextreme only shows the rumble pack thats why I was confused.
    EDIT--
    dealextreme shows the M3real as only having rumble pack and not the slot 2 cart.
    EDIT 2--
    I notice some of the cart say rumble ram pack and I"m guessing that means the thing ats as a rumble pack and the exspansion pak.

    Also, Is getting the homebrew emulators working tough?

    There's a M3Real package with a gba expansion, but dealextreme doesn't carry it.

    I just found someone with the m3real package in Canada (which is close enough)

    No one seems to have R4 and finding the the (real) DSTT seem to be pretty hard to do. Has anyone ever order from Sky2k.com?? They have the Boxed version of the dstt (some places seem to sell a rebranded version that only has the rumble pak)

    EDIT --
    think I'll go with either
    http://sky2k.com/shop/dstt-rumble-pack-gba...pack-p-352.html
    or
    http://www.gamersection.ca/product_info.ph...products_id=709

    decisions... decisions....

    I think the EZ Flash V and the 3 in 1 expansion would best suit your needs, the expansion works out of the box, and it is a relatively cheap card.
    Although it has no SDHC support.

    well, so far its a no go. I can't get ANYTHING to read the memory card. I tried the reader with the ttds, I tried the sd reader, I even tried the ds reader in my digital camera.

    Finally got the card to work but it sure is a pain. Only works one PC (my work laptop)

    So far its worked like a charm with the 6 or so roms I tried.
