    Im thinking about getting a flashcart
    Are there any that work on the DS lite and DSi?
    I saw the EZ5i on the front page and the guy put it in the DSi and Lite
    Will any work on my DS Lite if a update on my DS Lite prevents it from working?

    Have you updated your DSi to 1.4?

    Yeah
    That EZ5i can get past it
    Does it work on both the DSi and Lite?

    Is the EZ5i the only/best flashcart that can be played on both systems?

    i think you may be rushing into things a bit here the EZ5i is NOT the only choice for dsi gamers there is the m3i zero link:
    http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=170337
    and there is also the super card ds1 or something link:
    http://www.gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=84167
    so don't rush in, at the moment the EZ5i is the only one running on the dsi (the update you did on your dsi cancels them) but this can be fixed easier on the scds1 and m3i zero because you can update the kernel, firmware and bootloader on these two cards whereas the EZ5i can only be updated if your dsi is on 1.3 firmware or if you have a old ds/dsl
    SO DO NOT ORDER A EZ5I IF YOUR DSI IS ON FIRMWARE 1.4 AND YOU DO NOT HAVE A OLD DS/DSL TO UPGRADE IT!

    If you have a ds lite then you do not have to worry about the update because the ds lite's firmware can not be updated. If it is a lite there are more cards availible for it then there is the dsi, but if you want to get a dsi later you could get a dsi flashcard for your lite because they all work on all versions on the ds. ( phat, lite, and i)

    All DSi-enabled cards work with the Lite. I actually used my Acekard 2i on my Lite until I got my DSi.
    Acekard 2i is recommended, but if you have 1.4 on your DSi, you won't be able to use any DSi flashcard on it until an update comes out for the respective cards. They'll still work on the DS Lite though.

    Well since you have both a lite and an i I would recommend you get an acekard 2i and use akaio with it. Unless you feel like getting an m3i zero which is supposed to be good as well. I personally have an acekard 2i and love it, plus acekard has started work on fixing the update block, someone on ds-scene also said they have fixed it but it needs to be cleaned up before the public gets it.

    Sorry for all of the questions
    What is the best place to buy an acekard 2i and a good micro SD card?

    I ordered my Ackard 2i from Dealextreme. Good store, good customer service, and free shipping that is actually quite speedy.

    You can order a MicroSD card from them, but be sure to read any reviews beforehand.
