    I used to play my DS ROM's on DS and DSxl's using a flash cart. on the last DSxl it would always freeze and I would have to take the microsd out and rename a directory to make it work again.

    I not want to use those ROM's on a 2DS that would be purchased new in 2017.

    What method should I use to make this work on a new 2DS with current firmware? I haven't done this stuff in a long time so I'm not familiar with the latest terminology.

    You still need a flashcart. Recommended one is R4i Gold 3DS RTS from r4ids.cn.

    Can that seller be trusted?

    It wouldn't be GBAtemp's sponsor if it wasn't a trusted site. I bought that exact card from that site and it works flawlessly.

    Sorry i didn't realise it was a sponsor! Thanks for the link I've ordered one just to test. I've already got one of those r4 dual core ones that works already.

    Just an update the card came from that link above today and works perfect for DS games on my N3DS XL. Quite happy but don't know if i should keep my r4 dual core or this one now!
