    if someone says "Google is your friend" I will rip their balls out.

    Tell ya what you better do old buddy
    Basically search for reviews of different flash-carts and find the best one for you (CycloDS *wink wink*)
    A good size is 4gb or 6gb, which will hold all the games and homebrew you'll ever want to play.
    Modding is not required, just stick it in man.

    And please, if you have any problems, hesitate to ask and search first

    Go for either the cyclods or the acekard. I would suggest at least a 4-8gb card.

    buy a cyclo DS, acekard2, edge, or one of the other currently supported carts. Just make sure you avoid anything that says R4 like a bag of free AIDS.

    you will also need a micro SD card, I recommend you buy a class 6 8gb card, anything slower will have slowdown problems, anything smaller won't save you a lot of money.

    my website is your friend [​IMG]

    Like people have said, you want to get something good support like the CycloDS Evolution or M3 DS Real. Both have many features and good support. The acekard is also a good option, as it is cheaper and has great support as well. However, it lacks some features that the cyclo and m3 have (such as slow motion).

    The best would be the CycloDS Evolution, as it has the most features and greatest stability. However, it's actually become rare to hear from their development team recently...

    R4's are worse than that. They're like AIDS you have to pay for.

    You pay for AIDS too or else where else do you get it from? [​IMG]

    Anyways.... Acekard 2 with AKAIO .... Or iTouch DS.... its cheap and has nice functions such as Real-Time Saving, Slo-motion and of course the standard cheat support! [​IMG] And 8 gig is best.... you never know when you need extra space.... [​IMG]

    I would really recommend the CycloDS Evolution.
    It's build quality is amazing, I never had any problems with it.
    The Real Time Save works brilliantly, the menu's are quick and responsive, the support is very good.
    It can play multimedia files with Moonshell perfectly.
    It's well worth the extra money if you ask me.

    You can buy it from here for example:


    That's a great webshop, with great support and I've heard nothing but good things about it.
    You can get memory cards from there too.
