    Hello! I am currently looking to buy a flash card for my 3DS. The most important factors for me is;

    1. Cheap price.
    2. That it works with 3DS 5.1, and is supported and will get updates for future updates.
    3. Well, that it works.

    I was looking at this one; http://www.nds-card.com/ProShow.asp?ProID=474 , and this one; http://www.nds-card.com/ProShow.asp?ProID=146

    Should I go for one of these? Which R4 Manufactur is the safest alternative?

    Thanks!

    The R4i-SDHC is not a recommended brand, so neither of those.

    The only ones recommended anymore for use on the 3DS are:

    http://www.nds-card.com/ProShow.asp?ProID=149

    (Note: it needs to be the card that links to r4ids.cn, which this one is)

    http://www.nds-card.com/ProShow.asp?ProID=135

    The second one linked is definitely the best card on the market and has never needed a newer hardware revision to continue to work with newer 3DS updates; the R4i 3DS Gold, however, has. Both are currently working on the 3DS though. The R4i has seen pretty good support, as has the DSTWO.

    Thanks for all the quick answers! I'll most likely order one if these tomorrow! http://www.nds-card.com/ProShow.asp?ProID=149 as it seems to be the one that mostly fits my needs! How long do you think the shipping to Sweden/EU will be? Can't stand more 2-3 week shippings :/

    You have insufficient posts to view user location.
    2 to 4 weeks depending on where in the world you are. It ships out of Hong Kong.
