    I say flashcart but sometimes use the other when responding to someone who uses "flashcard".

    Cards are thin and have nothing inside them. Cart means it carries something inside of it, like RAM or a CPU or some device. People who use flashcard are not talking about flashcarts.

    Flashcart but only because I saw everybody else using it but never used Flashcard and the option for "The is poll is boring and I refuse to vote" makes you vote all the same [​IMG] I've been tricked.

    Flashcart, because Nintendo uses CARTridges, cartridge with flashable memory is flashcart!

    microSD CARD is medium that we put into flashCART.

    I used to say flashcards, but after a while I realized that flashcarts does make more sense.

    Both work - nintendo have traditionally reffered to "Game cards" (such as HERE).

    I call them flashcarts, but I will occasionally type flashcard by accident. Either way, I'm sure people will know what I meant. I voted flashcart, but it doesn't really matter in the great scheme of things. Kinda like how I will tend to call microSD's just SD's in reference to a DS flashcart's memory slot. I tend not to squabble over semantics. Life's too short.

    I call then Flashcards but I think it doesn't matter how you call them, because everybody knows what you mean and both are correct!

    Flashcarts allow you to play downloaded game dumps on a DS system.
    Flash cards are used to help one memorize information. Question on one side of a card, answer on the other. Repetitive learning at its best.

    Flash cards will help you do better in college.
    Flashcarts will help you waste time in college.

    However, i'm sure there is a Flash Card homebrew, which, if you choose, you can install on your flashcart.
