    The G6 lite 4G is 4 gigaBITS. That's 512 megabytes, although the formatted size (what you actually have to work with) is only about 499 megabytes.

    The G6 is not a good cart for DS homebrew, however if you just want to play DS and GBA games it is a very good cart.

    Why on earth would you get the old model G6? Not only is it ridiculously overpriced it also suffers a number of problems.

    Get the G6 Lite. It has a GBA case included so you can use it in your normal DS.

    its 4 GB not 512MB as destructobot stated. The format they formulate it to say its 512MB but its DEFENTLY 4GB. It HAS to be 4GB with the games I have on it, you do the math.

    -------GBA-------

    FF I&2 = 130MB
    FF Tatics = 130MB
    Tales of Phantasia = 66MB
    FF IV = 56MB
    FF V = 56MB
    Zelda - Minish Cap = 130MB

    -------NDS-----

    FF III = 784MB
    Harvest Moon = 454MB
    CastleV. PoR = 360MB
    Digimon World = 432MB
    Megaman Battlenetwork 5 = 183MB
    Megaman ZX = 350MB

    Those are megaBITS, not megaBYTES.

    4 gigaBITS
    = 512 megaBYTES

    1Mbyte = 8Mbits so lets do the math
    512Mbytes x 8 = 1096 Mbits

    it will take the G6 8Gbites to have 1Gbytes. I have nothing agaisn't the G6 itself but for me thats hardly enough space compared to what the Flash cards has to offer; and those are in Gbytes not bits

    The G6-Flash 3rd 4G is the crappy old version that came out before the G6 lite. I don't know why it costs more, but it's the same amount of memory.

    the price of flash memory has come down quite a bit since the original g6 was made. That is why the lite version cost less.
