    First off let me say Hello
    I am a new user to this site and about to dive into the DS mod seen and I would like to get some feedback. So here it goes...

    I am thinking of buying M3 Perfect SD (Slim) with Passcard 3 and wanted to know what kind of SD cards are compatible with it because I have a 4gb SD card and would like some input before I buy. I want to be able to play GBA and NDS as well as movies and music. That is why I am leaning towards the M3 Perfect instead of the nice DS-X. Any info would be nice. Thanks

    What if I formatted it and created two partitions would that work. I tried view that link and they say nothing about creating two partitions. Thanks for your help.

    Sorry, I don't have a slot-2 card, Just learned of M3wiki when I was getting started, and when the news came out that GBAtemp was hosting it.

    But if you don't want GBA support, Just get an R4. Best Slot-1 solution with 100% rom compatibility.

    Not yet. But thats because no one has made it DlDi compatible yet. Just a matter of time. If you want emulators and crap like that, then I suggest going for the M3 and passcard, But if you don't mind waiting then get the R4.

    Its up to you.

    I am not entirely sure about the 4Gig cards but I have a few 1Gig ones and I have had issues with the Kingston 1Gig SD cards when using some homebrew, in particular nesDS. This may change with application updates but for the time being I am using a SanDisk for homebrew apps/games. I have heard PNY cards work well in the M3's as well.

    Dude get the R4.
    R4=$55(max)
    1GB TFcard=20$(max)
    55+20=$75

    $75 < $120

    R4 > DS-X

    Put bluntly.
    Very bluntly.
