As the title says, I have a few questions.

1) My DSi was already 1.4 when I got it, and M3i was the only one that came pre-loaded with 1.4 compatibility, that is correct right?

2) I was reading reviews and stuff and people have been saying this is one of the best DS flash cards available and M3 is a trusted company. All that is true?

3) I am kinda computer savvy, so I can work my way around most issues, But from reviews and stuff, I just need to hook up my flash card with the included USB and it's set to upload all my roms and skins right?

4) I bought it from consolesource.com
Does anyone know if that's a well trusted site? From what I've read they were good and they were listed on the official M3 site.

I'm new to Gbatemp, so thanks ahead.

1) It does not come with 1.4 compatibility or compatibility with anything at all since it comes blank you will need to flash it with the supplied usb cord.
2) Pretty much.
3) Well pretty much with the micro sd.
4) Well it is an official site and an affiliate with gbatemp I think so yeah it is trusted.

Yeah I was watching how-to's and stuff for 1.4 and I already have the files downloaded. Just gotta wait

It seems easy enough so I really can't screw up. I ordered a 4gb Kingston. That should be enough for like 15 or so games?

man...4GB is enough for hundreds of games...
I totally agree - I only have a 2Gb & I've got ~30-40 Commercial Games, Some music (about an Album worth), a few photos, 4 or 5 Emulators (+ ~8 Emulator ROMS) and ~6-7 Homebrew programs & I'm pretty sure I've still got over 1/2 the card free

Edited later: oops sorry I made a mistake - Got home & checked & found that my current microSD card is in fact an 8Gb one
It currently contains:-
43 Commercial ROMS, 5 Emulators, 5 Homebrew games/Apps, 19 Music files (recorder @ 192kbps rate), 3 Photos, 15 Emulator Game Roms, 14 (Sakura) Skin File, 2 Text Files, 3 (short) music video files and finally the M3i0 System folder

And I've only got 4.68Gb left

Based on the above I think you'll be able to get the following files on 8Gb before it's full:
74 Commercial ROMS, 8 Emulators, 8 Homebrew Games/Apps, 32 Music files, 4 Photos, 25 Emulator ROMS, 24 Sakura Skins, 3 Text files and 5 Music videos

    @Jayro, I don't see whats so special about the DS ML, its just a DS lite in a phat shell. At least the phat model had louder speakers, whereas the lite has a much better screen.

    They probably said "Hey, why not we combine the two together and make a 'new' DS to sell".

    It's a DS Lite in a slightly bigger DS Lite shell.

    It's not a Nintendo / iQue official product, it's a 3rd party custom.

    Nothing special about it other than it's more comfortable than the Lite

    @SylverReZ if you could find a v5 DS ML you would have the best of both worlds since the v5 units had the same backlight brightness levels as the DS Lite unlockable with flashme
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    but that's a long shot

    i think only the red mario kart edition phat was v5
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    A woman with no arms and no legs was sitting on a beach. A man comes along and the woman says, "I've never been hugged before." So the man feels bad and hugs her. She says "Well i've also never been kissed before." So he gives her a kiss on the cheek. She says "Well I've also never been fucked before." So the man picks her up, and throws her in the ocean and says "Now you're fucked."

    anyways, we need to re-normalize physical media

    if i didn't want my games to be permanent, then i'd rent them

  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    Agreed, that why I try to buy all my games on disc, Xbox anyways. Switch games (which I pirate tbh) don't matter much, I stay offline 24/7 anyways.
  • AncientBoi @ AncientBoi:
    I don't pirate them, I Use Them :mellow:. Like I do @BigOnYa 's couch :tpi::evil::rofl2:

  • cearp @ cearp:
    @BakerMan - you can still "own" digital media, arguably easier and better than physical since you can make copies and backups, as much as you like.

    The issue is DRM
  • cearp @ cearp:
    You can buy drm free games / music / ebooks, and if you keep backups of your data (like documents and family photos etc), then you shouldn't lose the game. but with a disk, your toddler could put it in the toaster and there goes your $60

    :rofl2:
  • cearp @ cearp:
    still, I agree physical media is nice to have. just pointing out the issue is drm
  • rqkaiju2 @ rqkaiju2:
    i like physical media because it actually feels like you own it. thats why i plan on burning music to cds
