    Hi,

    My daughter is travelling into the US this year for a two week holiday, if she takes her DSi with a flashcart is there the chance of any problems when going through immigration?

    I know my flag shows as USA but that is only because mt country isn't available as an option.

    Why would it be....would they actually recognize it as a flashcart and proceed to check it for commercial roms

    I don't know.. A friend of mina has a modded Wii and went to his family in Tunesia. He has burned Wii games and they saw those games. he would be getting a huge fine but he cried and stuff and said it was his birth day so he didn't get one. So be cautious!

    Wow...You could try to remove the sticker or put another sticker over the cart from a real game

    When I went abroad they didn't check my R4, I just stuck it in the scanner and they didn't say anything.

    Aren't the scanners damaging to the data stored on micro SD cards? They could get wiped.

    As for me, nothing happened to me while i was traveling to taiwan from singapore with my EDGE flashcart.

    As long as you are not telling them that this is a device that plays back up games or tell them blatantly that you are pirating games, how will they know?

    @Blaze: i really doubt that or my 20 hours of megaman starforce would have been lost.. but there it still is. In other words, i really doubt that.. since my save files are still save and sound, playing my ds at my hotel 9 hours+ later and i was still able to load my game and save my game.

    Nothing to worry about mate! [​IMG] I'm in Manchester right now, took all my microSD's with me, my flashcarts, my flashed DS, my modded PSP, my computer with a bunch of illegally downloaded games yet they didn't say a word and nothing bad happened to my microSD cards either.

    I went to the US with my R4 last summer, and I had no problems at all. She should be fine.

    Well, I had a couple of burnt CD's (about 15) with me to give to my uncle, and they didn't say anything about those either. Although for some reason they won't play on his CD player, but I think that might be because of the fact CD-RW's don't always work on CD players.

    If you keep the flashcart in the DSi and just shove it into the scanner they will never take a look at what's inside the cart..

    Besides, if you are really that paranoid and you own an acekard, just load up Danny Phantom and turn autorun on [​IMG]

    That might explain why all my data kept going corrupt.
