    hi guys i dont much about the flashcards for the ds/dsi

    my problem is my girlfriends ds+r4 flash card :/

    she cant play some games (cant say now which games)

    i think she just need a better/newer flashcard, but she dont want a new one because she think all other flashcards cant have a changable skin/baclground ^^

    i dont understand her, she is only for a few seconds i the damn menü to choose a game... woman´s are hard to understand [​IMG]

    so i need flashcard, that have a good looking and changeable menü and can play all games (and it would be great if she can use it on an dsi, because she get one to christmas, what she dont know [​IMG] )

    so i hope you guys can help me to find a good flashcard and understand my bad english [​IMG]

    Almost all carts are skinnable. Cyclods (for DSL) and Acekard 2i(for DSi) are pretty good. They have good compatibilty, and they will have frequent firmware updates to fix games. Oh and tell, her that R4 is one of the lousiest carts actually.

    my budget for all gifts is 500€(so there is no problem) so what is the "best" card for her? is there a flashcard that is ds and dsi compatible

    edit: i told her so many times that the r4 is crap but she saw by a friend the m3 real about 5 months ago and and there was no changeable skin(or they dont know how [​IMG] (i dont know))

    All DSi carts have backwards compatibility, meaning they can run on DSi. And Acekard 2i is really good since there is an alternative firmware AKAIO that has great games compatibility and fast updates, but there are some issues people say which is the blocking of the carts when Nintendo releases new DSi firmware. For those issues Super Card DS one i is good or there is a M3i Zero coming out soon. You can go read up on it.

    Edit: To your edit, all M3 carts including the R4 clone are skinnable. You can check some reviews here

    it would be shitty if i bought one yet and to christmas my girlfriend will get problems with the flashcard +dsi ^^

    thanks guys for helping me (i hope she will use the cyclods ^^, but i looked at youtube for the cyclods and the skins look pretty cool)

    Well the acekard2i is compatible with the ds/dsl/dsi and it has alot of skins already up for download on their main site: http://www.acekard.com/ Also the cyclodsevolution is the fastest card i've seen and it look pretty nice too. But if you want one for the dsi i suggest you wait for the m3 zero which will have core firmware updates so nintendo cant block it even if they update their firmware. But if its for ds lite it doesnt matter which cart you get whether its acekard2i, cyclo, or any m3 one. They are all good.
