I have a 16 gigger.

14.8 actual space.

11.1 gigs for the NDS folder, 401 games.

1.44 gig GBA, 260 games.

Thinking of getting rid of the GBAs in order to get more space for NDS. I only have like 1.5 gigs left

Can't wait for the 32 giggers!

No music or videos.

8GB. Have to rotate out games now depending on which I play more. Or, sequels that I probably won't play until beating the original. Something tells me I will be getting a 16GB soon so I won't have to worry anymore. 1GB GBA, the rest DS. With 300 MB for homebrew/emulators.

man do you even play all those games o.O?
i got 24 and i only play 3 of them..

I think its a mental thing having to do with perfection. I always want every good game on my card just for the sake of it. Everyone wants a complete set of something. Its even worse when you love every genre, and most games. like myself.

Filling up a 16Gb SDHC with NDS and GBA games is ridiculous. I have a 8Gb SDHC, have both NDS and GBA games, and I still have 2 Gbs left even though I have tons of huge games, popular games, and pretty much every Japanese game that looks enjoyable. I don't see how someone could fill up a 16Gb card.

What cards do you use for like 8 and 16 gigs?

because i want to get one like that for mostly music / tv shows coz i already have a few episodes of drawn together on mine with games and a few gadgets but im un-sure if my current card (R4) will work with SD cards bigger than 2gb so any help on the subject would be apriciated!

On topic: Im using a 2gb card with maybe 100-200mb free. my main games on there have barely changed with the majority of my games being wifi

real R4 supports up to 2GB(some 4GB might work, but those are unstable)
some clones support up to 32GB.

i have 2 microSD's.
4GB: 300MB free, filled with homebrew, GBA games, my favourite DS games, and 237MB worth of mp3 files.
2GB: TWEWY special OST edition

Right now I have a 2 gigger, roughly 20-40 games. A fair bit of music, about an hour and a half worth. Videos... probably 200-300 megs worth. About 100 megs of homebrew. No GBA games.

I'm currently using a 2gb Micro SD with my R4 and I thought that was a lot. Seeing some of these card amounts, I know mine is pretty much nothing compared to those ones, but I don't usually put a lot on it. Just games and homebrew. I have about 1.5gb used up on it, so I don't really have to worry.

Three 1 gig cards, and between them there's probably a dozen NDS games. About 500MB of empty space, depending on what I'm doing. A lot of homebrew software and emulators, books, comix/magazines. Sometimes there's a fair chunk of music, but none at the moment I think.

Basically I don't play DS games much. It's mostly reading, Scrabble, or ScummVM these days.

Lol my 8 Gig card with my M3Real has about 5 Gigs out of 8 gigs filled, so much space i cant find anything else to squeeze in. Got pretty much every DS game i ever wanted/have had, and every single GBA game that is even note-worthy. I even have about 400 MB's of songs in there too.

Could you help me with my Scummvm please?

I get the in-game menu and at the bottom (of the top screen) - For a complete key list see the help screen.

Zip File found Ok!

And then it stays there

BTW I didn't patch it because the CycloDS is supposed to do that automatically.

Anyone who got this to work can point me to a link to download the file they used? Thanks!

I have two cards:

Sandisk 1GB- filled with SNES, Genesis, GBC, and GBA roms. It's pretty much full. I don't use it much at the moment as it's primarily GBA and my EZ Flash 3-in-1 is broken.

Kingston 2GB- filled solely with DS games. It's also full. I swap games out constantly.

I want an 8gig card, but I don't have any money right now. Same issue with my GBA games. Gotta work to pay the bills ATM.

It is really hard not to waste a lot of gigs if you get an NDS this late (like me.)
For one, a LOT of good games have come out already (7.5 out of 8 gigs on my SD is used, and im going to be worried about spring

)
[btw, 50 MB is the max you should have left.]
