    PLEASE HELP ME

    I'm thinking about getting the n-card with 1gb storage for $30 or fire link with 2gb storage for $42.
    Do you think the 2gb is worth it, or should I just stick with the 1gb???

    ALSO please tell me if there is anything different between these two products other than memory size!

    The link for the n-card 1gb is here:
    N-card 1gb

    The link for the fire link 2gb is here:
    Fire Link 2gb

    If there is anything I did wrong or should've done differently, please tell me as I am new to GBAtemp. [​IMG]

    THANKS FOR LOOKING AND PLEASE REPLY!!

    I'm thinking you should go with the N-Card.

    Why, is the Fire Link cheaper quality than the N-Card?

    It would seem to me that if they use the same firmware under the same conditions, that the one with more memory would be the better choice.

    there is no difference, NCARD is the offical card, Firelink is a clone, they all use the same firmware so choice is yours

    As for the size, depends what your gonna use it for, if Roms, Homebrew, Movies, Mp3 etc the bigger the better, if just for some Roms and Homebrew i would go with the 1gb

    1GB personally, i got 2 GB and hate putting too much stuff on it or it becomes a bother to find, plus wen ya remove a game ya can keep a backup of the sav on the card so its always there,
    although go with the cheaper one and change the firmware, mine used to be a really cheap and nasty chinese firmware but the card was cheap but then i got N-Cards firmware and replaced it, as long as its a Nand style format of the card then any other firmware made for the card will work no matter what company makes it

    Yeah, just f.y.i. I want this mostly for the ROMs. Anyone know about how many ROMs I can put on a 1gb? Doesn't need to be really exact. Thanks for your help!

    about 10-20 on a 1gb card, just depends on the games

    Roms range from 8mb (Big Brain Academy) upto 128mb (Children of Mana)

    also games are coming that are going to be bigger, as far as i understand it ASH will be coming in at 256mb, biggest cart so far

    I've never seen the firecard, but I had a dslinker, and a xpcard, and i've notified their chips are different than ncard's chip. Maybe its quality is better than the clones. Nowadays I have a NCard 1GB with EZFlash 3-in-1 Expansion Pack and they work very well together.

    Yeah, spend the few extra bucks and get double the space. I have a 2Gb DS-Linker, and my girls has a 1Gb DS-Linker, and she's always wanting more space. So just get the 2Gb Firelink.
