    Sorry to ask a probably redundant question, but I'm a COMPLETE n00b to the community.

    Basically, I plan on purchasing an R4 DS and an EZ Flash 3 in 1.

    From my understanding, a microSD card goes in the R4, which goes into "Slot 1" (the DS cart slot).
    And... the EZ Flash 3 in 1 goes in the Slot 2 (GBA).

    Now, can someone please explain to me how I get the EZ Flash to work?
    Do I put the files on the microSD? Will the EZ Flash let me play GBA files straight off the microSD?

    This is where I seem to be getting stuck.

    Thanks guys. (Awesome community!!)

    OH, and is supercardnds.com a legit site? Anyone have any feedback?

    1. You souldn't buy a R4. There are better, cheaper cards out there.
    2. You have to use Rudolphs 3 in 1 tool to use the 3 in 1 with other cards than the Ez V. It's pretty self-explanitory.

    Acutally R4 is one of the best Flashcard,which have ever been built [​IMG]
    @Topic: If you want to play GBA-Games you have three choices:

    1st.: Download them and play them with an emulator (VisualBoy Advance is perfect!)
    2nd.: Go to shop,buy a GBA and the Games you want to play [​IMG]
    3rd.: Or...Buy one of the M3 Real Packs...There are three I think and with one of them you can also play GBA-Games on your DS [​IMG]

    The R4 is an excellent card, which does exactly what it's meant to do - play ROMs. I've got one, and I've never encountered a problem with it. Auto-DLDI works well (as you'd expect) for homebrew. It's a simple drag and drop operation to get your ROMs on there.

    I'd suggest a 2gb uSD card - I can fit pretty much anything I want on, with room to spare.

    The 3-in-1, combined with Rudolph's tool makes an excellent GBA solution, and lets you run GBA games on your DS directly from your R4. Games load up to PSRAM in a matter of seconds and play very well indeed. You do need to patch the games to make saves (which go to your uSD card on the R4) and I'd suggest you get a decent patcher, as the one for the EZ range doesn't work.

    Other than that, they're an excellent combination. The R4 is updated regularly to address protection issues and you can't really ask for more than that.

    The R4 is one of the best Slot-1 Flash Cards out there. There are cheaper cards out there but cant do what the R4 can do. Expensive ones like the Cylco has better features but is way more expensive. IMO, heres the chart:
    1) R4 - Cheapish price(Depends where you buy it from) and awesome features.
    2) M3 Simply - Clone of R4. Not sure if its the Simply since im not sure but it is made by the M3 Team.
    3) Cyclo DS - Great features, real time save thing, but WORST Price. To expensive. Instead of buying a Cyclo, and buying a R4, you can save like $20.
    4) TTDS - Alittle New in the Slot-1 World but its ok i guess, not the best but yea. Iv seem some videos but doesnt look that good.
    5) DS Extreme - Not the best, but the TTDS is much better. The DS Extreme has some cool features like the "Dancing Lights" or LED's w/e, but other then that, it doesnt look "well".
    6) Everything else.
    7) N5. or N6, w/e it is. It OBVIOUSLY copied the R4. How/Why? There main website, is the SAME layout/words as the R4 website! Thats right. I cant seem to find it but i definetly saw it. I imediently reported it to the R4 team in support.

    Thanks a lot for all those links man...

    Only thing that sucks is that it appears as if everything on that site is sold out. =(

    Everything it only available for pre-order. That sorta sucks. >_

    NP. Yea, the R4 is currently sold out pretty much everywhere. Here are some links to trusted sites:
    Realhotstuff.com
    Dealextreme.com
    Gameyeeeah.com

    And thats all i know. I only trust theses 3 sites.
    Realhotstuff= I heard they have the best shipping possible, but never bought anything from there
    Dealextreme= Free Shipping, cheap stuff. Awesome gadgets there. Has a Video game tab, sells Flash Cards too.
    Gameyeeeah=Trusted site. Bought over 15 stuff/items there.

    I'm seeing more and more of these posts everywhere...

    Anyways I have bought the R4 + EZ combo from Gameyeeeah before. If they're out of stock you wait. I waited a month.
    The R4 team is going through a legal crysis at the moment. And to configure the EZflash you download Rudolph's tool from this very site, you copy the .nds and .ini files on your microSD adapter, which will be going into your R4, and once your carts arrive boot the DS and launch the .nds rudolph's tool. Basically if you want to "prepare" for now all you have to do is format your microSD FAT16 and put rudolph's tool on it, then wait for your carts.
