    Hey all

    My little brother wants a flash cart for his Phat . I have been looking at the 8Gb N-Card at dealextreme for 36AUD. Is the -Card any good for playing ROMS. That is all my little brother wants to do with his Ds no music,movies,homebrew,etc.

    THanks in advance

    the N-card has 100% rom compatibility. On a side note if you get it dont flash to the newest firmware theres no sound [​IMG] The card is excellent i really would recommend it.

    the only downside i can think of is its far to slow to copy roms onto the card. [​IMG] its around 3 mins for a rom. Well it gets the job done you wont be wasting your money. Look at the gbatemp review for the pros and cons.

    the N card is $29 and has 1gb built in, the R4 is $38 by itself at dealxtreme thats why you should get your R4 from bamboo gaming since they still offfer it for $32, so the difference in price is a factor for many people.

    I guess that was my main problem, I could not save files, they got erased, so I am guessing this was my main issue thegame!

    go to sky2k.com and check the prices there.

    The R4 at bamboogaming no longer has free shipping. It's probably not that cheap anymore

    If he wants only DS games then the N-Card clones are the best. Check out my review here and it will give you info on how to skin, firmware tricks, and more info. I think the best N-Card clone it the MK5 though and its also very cheap. Beware though as I have only seen the newest 2GB models in white as since the products release the 2gb models have all been in pink for all of the n-card clones. I know the DSLinker now has a 2GB white model but that is it so far as we know.

    Since I saw this card for really cheap (30$ can), would it be a good idea to replace my Supercard CF by an N-Card? I know i would lose GBA support, but GBA support is so poor on the Supercard it's not worth it. I would like to have a card that don't stick out and that support every games, and this card look like a good and cheap choice. Any negative things I should know? ...or should I just keep my Supercard CF?


    EDIT: ...and would I be able to convert my Supercard saves to use them on the N-Card?


    Thanks!!

    the only negative thing is how slow it is to get roms onto the card. It plays every single rom with no slowdown. The new update has auto dldi patching which is also a added bonus. I would suggest you get a N card. Do you have a phat ds?

    yes you can convert your supercard saves to work on the n-card. just use shunys save converter.

    Yes, PHAT DS. Does it matter?

    And a last question: is it possible to use the 3in1 expansion from EZ Flash with the N-Card (if want to play GBA games...)?

    When the release there 3in1 gba sized, yes

    If you have a DATEL Action replay or action replay DUO, yes you can use the 3in1 lite on your phat ds [​IMG]

    Just tested it with the GBAMP V1 (CF) and it also works with it [​IMG], it's even easier then the AR Duo [​IMG]

    BUT it will stick out to play GBA games then, so better wait for the GBA sized 3in1 from whatever companie that will bring it first in that size [​IMG]
