    I know the N-card is a nice, cheap alternative for a flash cart, but I have a few questions about it's abilities..

    Does the N-card support sleep mode?

    Can the N-card play music (mp3's), even in sleep mode?

    What's the advantage of an internal battery? I see a lot of people listing that as an advantage, but I think it's bad cause it eventually dies.

    And lastly, how long DOES the battery (years?) and save files last? And are the save files kept alive as long as the battery is running?

    Thanks for any help, cause I'm planning on getting a DS and a N-card soon..

    Yes the Ncard supports sleep mode

    Use Moonshell to play all media types including Mp3's

    the save file is only kept in battery when switched off, when it is switched back on the save file is written to the inernal nand (storage)

    Also, the battery is rechargable. So, you could keep saves for years.

    The N-card is basically the same as DS Fire Link right?

    Anyway, why do people consider built-in memory an advantage? The internal battery eventually runs out, so I'd consider it a disadvantage..

    And you can recharge the dead battery if you want right, after it runs out?

    Internal memory is much faster. Some people don't need more than 2GB. I prefer external myself, but something like the Acekard RPG is really cool.

    I'm not so sure about the battery. I don't really know why it would be considered an advantage.
