    I have a co-worker that needs a flash card for their NDS. I plan on selling them my R4DS and buying one of the newer cards for myself.

    Things I would like to accomplish with the new card:

    Playing roms

    Playing movies and music with as little effort as possible (the less converting I have to do the better)

    SDHC card support (I already have a 4gb card ready and waiting)

    Thats about it, unless there are other cool features I'm in the dark about.


    Which one should I go for?

    Seems to me the best are CycloDS, Supercard DS, and Acekard 2 I think. Maybe you can try the new iTouchDS?

    I also own an R4 and just got my Cyclo DS Evolution today. I highly recommend it; the features blow R4 out of the water. I also got a Sandisk 8GB microsdhc and have over 135 DS roms, 31 SNES roms, and still have 1.24GB of free space left.

    I posted this in another topic but no replies... (It was sort of un-related) But I'm also looking to upgrade and I'm after something with the big features as well as Wii Connectivity. I'm guessing my only option is CycloDS as opposed to SCDS or the AK2... Would be great if someone knew otherwise! [​IMG]

    What's your price range?

    Look at feature lists and then make your choice from there, IMO just look around and you'll find information, don't take ANY information from people on this site that are overly enthustatic about one cart, because you'll just be taking advice from fanboys who for some reason like to advocate that their cart is the best, probably just to make themselves feel better for choosing it.

    The three carts I'd look at it if you want a feature rich cart are:
    Ace Kard RPG
    CycloDS
    Supercard DS One

    If you wanta cheap cart, check dealextreme.com or whatever for the cheapest ones, I believe AK2 and DSTT are supposed to be the 'uber cheap' ones.
