    Alrighty, sorry to bug you guys but I can't really make up my mind on what to get. I've read a lot of reviews on varying carts, and even looked up product reviews from various online stores. I think the major thing holding me back though is that I don't even know what I'm looking for exactly. If anyone would be willing to help me out, I'd greatly appreciate it.

    What I'm really looking for, is a cartridge that I can play Japanese games on. I own hard copies of them all, but it's quite the hassle to deal with them when traveling. For that same reason, I purchased an R4DS. If it's possible, I'd love to have one that boots from the R4's Slot2 option. I do intend to play Pokemon, I know that was an issue brought up in several of the reviews and previous topics.

    I have roughly 10 games that I'm looking to put on this cartridge. I don't quite understand how file transfer compression works, but I don't think I particularly need to get a cartridge with large capacity. Cost isn't a tremendous issue, but if the only major difference between two cartridges is the capacity, I wouldn't want to pay extra for space I may not use. I'm not sure if this helps any, but the total size of the files (unzipped) are 120Mbs.

    This is not a make/break factor between the cartridges, but if possible, I would like one that can transfer between the DS and DS Lite. Possibly even the Gameboy Advanced. Like I said though, this is not terribly important, but it would be a nice option.


    So, a quick summary for those who don't like walls of text:

    Must:
    -play Japanese games
    -work with Pokemon
    -work on the DS or DS lite

    Would like:
    -a smaller cartridge that can hold roughly 10 games.
    -the ability to switch between the DS and DS Lite.
    -the ability to boot from the R4's Slot2

    Based off of what I've been reading, I'm looking at getting the M3 Perfect Micro-SD Lite.

    Can I have thoughts from any owners or past owners? And if it's a good option, what reputable place can I buy it from? With the exception of http://shop.01media.com/info.asp?ProductID=16647, majority of the links contained in the GBAtemp review either didn't have them listed, or had them out of stock.
