    hi,

    im thinking of buying nds lite and i have been reading up that you can play gba roms on it and also flash it so you can view pics,movies and listen to mp3s. How do i go about doing that?
    what softwares or hardwares do i need? if someone can point me to a guide, i'll be forever grateful.

    thanks!

    -Get a passcard like Superkey or Passcard 3
    -Get a cart like the M3,G6,EZIV,Supercard
    They all play GBA and NDS roms (although some cant play certain games), then download an app called MoonShell for playing your media files.

    I can't make a choice for you regarding the hardware, i suggest reading the forums about the different cards available and go from there.
    There are a few threads that discuss the differences between the hardware so it shouldn't be too hard.

    Yes, however as a fair warning the G6 Lite comes in 4Gbit size wich is around 512MByte it may not be enough room if your planning on having movies and games on it.

    Good luck.

    thanks for your patience. I am aware of that as well [​IMG]

    uhm another question, i just read some more and found out about the miniSD supercard+nopass+miniSD memory card. do they support games/homebrew as well as the g6 lite? Im asking because considering with that setup, the memory is expandable....

    supercard i heard isn't as good with gba games. go with the m3 if you want all-around compatibility.

    here is what i suggest if you dont mind a) the card sticking out a little bit of your ds b) the price

    - passcard 3
    - m3 mini sd
    - 2gb mini sd

    with m3 you can be sure to have best support, highest compatiblity, no slow downs.
    this is the setup i would buy if i wanted one NOW and dont mind the above 2 points.
    or you wait for the m3 micro sd which should be released soon.

    I always wondered: Is this still true with the latest miniSD version?

    I believe the micro-sd version of the m3 is rumored to be coming out the 15th of august but no one knows for sure.

    The biggest micro sd cards I've ever seen are 1gb, so it might not be enough if you want to hold movies and stuff. Of course there might be bigger micros but I've never seen them

    My advice would be to forget GBA support and buy a MiniSD Supercard along with a SuperKey. Its solid and works great for NDS.

    A great store is www.supercardstore.com - although its a British site it's £49 ($92USD, $120AUD) for the MiniSD SC and SK and that includes worldwide postage. They've got the SC-Lite as well.

    And no i don't work from them.

    maw.

    Hello!
    Nood here.

    So, M3 mini-SD still have slowdowns?
    I am in doubt between G6 4G and M3 Mini-SD, but once M3 I can upgrade the memory, I belive my choice is almost done.:-D

    M3 Mini-SD + Passcard 3 is good, uh?

    I bought my NDS Lite few weeks ago in a trip and was very happy to discover that I can backup my games.;-)

    Does it consumes too much of the battery, anyway?
