    I will probably buy a CycloDS for all my NDS needs. Now I would like a slot-2 cart to add SDHC for all my GBA, NES, SNES, movies, ect... I realise that there are not many of the cards around yet, but eventually there will be 16 and 32GB cards available. I can hear the crittics already: "how many games do you need to play at once?" Just 1!!! But quite frankly, I find the whole process of loading and unloading games on and off of small memory cards very tedious. Not to mention worrying about transferring your save files.

    Why don't you just get an EZ 3-in-1 Expansion. That way, you won't have to change the SD card from one flashcart to another. Besides it's like 20 bucks and it has vibration and it works as an Opera RAM too. I think it's a great gadget for all Slot-1 users.

    I'm pretty sure there was/going to be a DSLink firmware update which allows SDHC to be read.

    Physical appearance-wise, they are similar. Firmwares are very vaguely similar (the way it lists files)

    M3 Perfect Lite supports it for media and musics no sure about games or anything else. I think they'll improve that.

    They fixed that in v35 supposedly as the release notes states that SDHC support was fixed so that you can play games from them. That version is chinese only the last time I looked though.

    The 16 and 32 SDHC Micro cards, would they be out in early or late 2008?

    Aren't we only seeing 4 and 6 now, with 8 coming out around the holidays?

    Thanks for all the responses. My current M3 Perfect will end up being used in my 2nd Gameboy Micro as it will fit flush. I do not like the EZ 3 in 1 solution because it is the slot-1 card that takes the microsd. The slot-2 has onboard memory and is not expandable. And I have already chosen CycloDS Evo for my slot-1 so no need for another. I guess my best bet for a slot-2 at this time would be an M3 Lite since it has %100 GBA compatibility and will fit my NDS flush. I just wish someone could confirm weather or not they do/or plan to support SDHC. I thought I read somewhere that the SDHC specification is hardware controlled, therefore firmware updates will not be able to add support for it... Thus the reason why SDHC cards are sold with SDHC card readers. You cannot update the driver on your PC's card reader to recognize it either. Can anyone else confirm this? I know it will be a long time before cards of significant size are out, but I would still like know that when they are out, I will be ready to buy 2!!!

    For the M3 lineup.. Here is the v35 changelog so this is not for the M3 Simply... Note that v35 is chinese only at this time.
