    Has anyone used one of these flash cards? I bumped into a guy selling them at the local markets. I bought one to give it a try as he says they are the "best" out now. My initial opinion is that they are not better than a DSTWO, but the interface and speed is quite nice. Compatibility seems good, but I need to test quite a bit more.

    Has anyone else come across these yet? www.pandora-ds.com

    looks nice, but never heard of it.

    EDIT: can you post some pictures of what the system menu of this flashcart looks like? it seems to me like is a R4 clone. Note the "_system_" folder and " _DSMENU.DAT file.

    I'll try to post some pics later. Curious whether its a new card or whether its some form of a clone. As I said, it does work well though.

    It claims that it uses a Wood version. If that's true, that shouldn't be a big surprise.

    Clearly an R4 clone, it has Wood R4 up for download on the site.

    EDIT: This may be the interface: [​IMG]

    It talks in the page about "16 channels", which i think it means this.

    EDIT: Oh lovely, the card can directly pirate games. (i.e. download them directly on the device)

    Here's a screenshot of the system files that I just downloaded:

    [​IMG]

    Note the "_DS.MENU.DAT", "_system_" and "__rpg" folders, definitely an R4 clone.

    I can confirm that is the directory structure of the SD card. I have a copy of it on my desktop. I'll see about getting a picture of the actual interface for you once the kids leave the house (DSi's are xmas presents, so can't bring them out in front of them).

    but if you look in the W4.rar from the site it also contains "akmenu4.nds" what is that?

    okay thanks. and i will try to put this on my R4 in about an hour.

    EDIT: "askmenu4.nds" is for an Acekard. its like the "_DS.MENU.DAT" of an Acekard. (System file.)

    Hmm, link I'm going to have to go with R4 clone, which has clearly already been established numerous of other times in this thread [​IMG]

    I'm quite interested to see the UI, only thing I can't find on the site. But why are you going to test it on the kid's DS? Especially when they didn't even open it yet, I think everybody here can wait until the 25th or so, this way your kids won't think they got a pre-used toy, I'd be very angry at my parents if they decided to "test" my new toy before I even got to lay my hands on the packaging.

    Must be a first rate product, just look how carefully they photoshopped that logo(look at white patches in between letters). [​IMG]
    They also claim* their SDHC card supports 64 GBs, so they must be technological geniouses! [​IMG]

    Why do they have to be "tecnological geniouses" to support 64 gig MicroSD HC? You do realize MSDHC can and does go up to 64GB.

    From Where???
    its either an ak2i clone or someone made their own sticker and is selling another companies product. if the new version of wood runs on it then it is probably a wood supported r4 clone. if akaio v1.5 runs on it, its an actel chipped ak2i based clone, probably based on the design acekard sold while ago. there are a few cards that can run both wood and the cracked version of akaio, they are all ak2i actel based designs.

    either way you bought a clone. support for it will be determined by wood. if wood supports it and the card works well, as long as you didn't pay to much for it, juet enjoy it. shots of the pcb would be nice so we could figure out exactly what card this seller is putting his own custom stickers on.
