    I used R4 for my DS and for most of the 3DS lifecycle but now the R4 cards I have don't work and aren't updating correctly. I would try out a new card but I need to make sure all the files and most importantly save data can be carried over. Can someone direct me to the best card and hopefully one that updates along with the system.

    Thanks in advance!

    You have insufficient posts to view location.
    That is because R4 clones moved to a "your no longer entitled to any more updates" mentality. Get a DSTWO, it will have an update that supports the latest 3DS firmware within a few days.

    +1 on the DSTWO. Super fast updates, you never need to get new hardware revisions, and it supports some cool stuff like the TempGBA emu.

    Will the DSTwo support DS Save files? The .SAV is what it outputs for R4. Also, what are some trusted resources to buy it from.

    Yeah, the saves would transfer over fine. As far as the resellers request, depends where on the US you're at and where you don't mind getting shipped from. RealHotStuff.com ships out from NJ, USA. ModChipsDirect.com ship from NY, USA (IIRC). I've heard good things about both, and placed my first order at RealHotStuff last night.

    I can vouch for this, DSTWOs made before the 3DS came out work on the newest firmware. There's also RTS (save states) and in-game guides and such, useful stuff.
