    Hello folks, new user here. Now I am posting in this subsection because the ad I found listed for flash carts is in fact for a "RD4 SDHC" apparently, at least from what the image shows.

    I have called and emailed and texted to confirm.

    However, I wanted to get an opinion from you knowledgeable folks before I got it. Here is the ad: http://orlando.craigslist.org/vgm/3586025471.html

    So, I would be using this with a DSI XL I just got, the XL is updated to the latest update (no new ones). I want to be able to play DS, GBA, and SNES games. So would this card be able to do it?

    Also, what would I need to do beyond buying it in order to handle my wants? Would I need to change the firmware? Which firmware should I use? How does one change it?

    If you guys have an article or something I can read just point me to it and I will get out of your hair!

    No that card wouldn't do, if you want to emulate SNES and GBA adequately you need a Supercard DSTwo, That would have the firmware you need

    do NOT get that
    for
    DS, GBA, and SNES games all in one

    get a Supercard DS Two

    it can play snes and GBA games (not 100%) but ok (and very good DS support)

    for EVERY OTHER card to play gba games, you MUST use a slot-2 card

    You can get emulation for SNES on any card but to be fair its fairly shoddy. Supercard is an extra $10 but you get alot more for it. Plus the one you had advertised is terrible used to have one made by them and they drop support as soon as theres a new card out.
