    I don't even own a ds yet, so bear with me. If it is too cumbersome to answer these questions, could you point me in the direction of a faq?

    I figure from what I hear the cyclo is the one to go with. How does it work? Do you just put the roms on the micro sd card, plug it into the ds, and away we go? Do you put multiple roms on the card, and then get a menu that allows you to pick which game to play? Why are people asking about ez 3 in 1? What does that do?

    Can you play gba games directly off of the same card? Is there a particular brand of card to use that is best? Can you only use micro sd?

    Sorry for this shitload of questions, and I am sure that if I searched I could find the answers, but I am an old (compared to most of you, I'm sure, at 36) man with two kids, and no time. Any help would be very appreciated.

    Also, do I only need the cylco, or do I need to order other hardware?

    You can't play GBA games on any Slot-1 without the use of something in the Slot-2.

    Theres a review here that should answer your questions:

    Sorry to jump in here ...

    If youre looking to get the Cyclo DS Evolution then you need MICRO SD or MICRO SDHC (not Mini) memory cards ...

    Mini SD cards are double the size of Micro SD... and as enigmaindex says SDHC are high capacity (HC) ... eg over 2Gig

    I think its best if you clarify which cyclo youre planning to get ?

    Oh yeah good point coops. Best to tell us which one you are after. And the Cyclops Team webpage seems to be down, says it suspended or something like that. [​IMG]
