    Hi I'm new to the DS and was looking for a card for it but there's so many with similar names!! I have a DSi running 1.4.5 and so far these are the ones I'm looking at


    R4i Gold Pro 2016 http://www.nds-card.com/ProShow.asp?ProID=490

    R4i sdhc http://www.nds-card.com/ProShow.asp?ProID=145

    R4i sdhc 3ds RTS http://www.nds-card.com/ProShow.asp?ProID=146

    R4i Gold http://www.nds-card.com/ProShow.asp?ProID=149

    Which out of them is the best to go with?

    Also what is the wood firmware? Do I need it?

    Thanks

    Get the 4th one

    It's the one that uses the Wood Kernel and should have almost the best compatibility with games

    Thanks I thought that would be the one to go with, I'm sure that's the only one listed on the Which flash card should I get " list on here isn't it?

    Its just confusing how the names are all similar..

    Thanks

    The names are similar to fool you into buying a cheap clone. Some of the cheap clones don't work after a year they are made. The 4th one is the best and isn't a cheap clone.

    What do I do with it when it arrives. I have a 8gb card sitting around that I'm going to use with it. Is it just as simple as drag the kernel files or what ever they are onto the card and drag what you want to play onto the card?

    Thanks

    my dad works for nintendo.
    you unzip the folder of the website into the card, and create a folder (or several) for your games as you like
    i reccomend you to first format the card with https://members.sdcard.org/downloads/formatter_4/
    but if you rather use windows, it needs to be fat32 formatted
