    of course better than slot 2 card reader with the NDSL [​IMG]

    May be I can take a test with G6REAL vs NCARD

    That's a very good idea! The Slot-2 reader has had it's time... Now this cart will become one of the best again [​IMG]

    Good to see DSGBA's not dead yet [​IMG]

    Or is this a 3rd party product?

    They are still working, they are working for some interesting features for us. [​IMG]

    It allows N-CARD (or similar) cards to be read and written to by a computer, rather than doing this process through the slot 2 linker

    I had no problem personally with the gba-slot linker, and it offers other benefits like being able to use your NDS as a gamepad or mouse (no setup or configuration needed - no having to run server apps etc).
    The only disadvantage for me was the fact that it drained my DS' battery.

    Man, what I want is a dumper for GBA carts. But absolutely no one will tell me where to get that. [​IMG]

    Nice The slot 2 writer was one of the reason my Ncard was out of use [​IMG].

    Anyway It would be interesting to see if the new packs will come with this writer insted of the slot 2 one [​IMG]

    Mind sharing on what some of those features may be? And when a new firmware may be coming out?

    Anyways, thanks for sharing this. This is really freakin' awesome. I hope the speeds are going to be at least on par with the G6 Real. Taking about two hours to backup a 2GB cart, is just unacceptable. Hopefully with this new USB card reader, it will only take a few minutes.

    Hope they release it soon.

    Will this be bundled with future shipments of N-card?

    Can you buy it seperately as well?

    Will it work on N-card clones?

    What will it cost?

    If you have a slot-1 flash card, you can use GBALdr to dump GBA carts to your slot-1 card.

    @Glacius0: Yes, yes, yes, no idea.

    Hopefully this is better than their last USB-reader!


    I hope dealextreme stocks this when it's released, otherwise it may be a little tricky for westerners like me to get hold of. Although I can already think of one unscrupulous site which should have it soon... [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    You do realize that almost all the online flashcart dealers ship to the US?...

    Yeah, but AFAIK DSGBA doesn't have any official dealers in the western world. Think about it, how long did it take for the N-card to make a sizeable appearance on gbatemp? Virtually everyone ignored their first incarnation, the ultraflashpass 1G/4G. It was only when the bigger clone dealers came out that these carts became widely available.

    It seems a little weird that they're bringing this out now. But it's totally awesome. I thought they'd given up on working on the N-Card.... But I guess N-Cards would still be pretty popular in China - and there's a hell of a people there.

    I'll be picking one up as long as it's not too expensive.

    It'll be interesting to see what it can do. I just want to know how fast it'll be and if it can back up originals. Not sure what other features it could possibly have actually.

    Also, I'm curious as to why they'd release this now when the next gen of flash carts (Cyclo DS Evo and AceKard RPG) are already coming out. Does this mean a new N-Card is on its way?
