    1. Can I use my .sav files from my R4? (I should be able too right?)
    2. Are there any clones?
    3. For you Platinum players, it works right, no problems I should know about?
    4. Do you recommend it over the R4? (Most people said yes)
    5. Is the main interface similar to the R4, or will I have to get used to a new interface? (I don't mind)
    6. What's the price range? (I heard it's from 50-60 dollars)

    Thanks~

    Sav files are the same. You do not need a converter. The main interface/menu is almost exactly like the R4. Games/Media/Setting. Cyclo is also recommended over all flashcarts, depending on your budget/needs.


    realhotstuff.com has them for $47 shipped. I got mine in 3 days.

    yes the cyclo evo is top notch piece of kit.

    It plays Paltinum great save file are all the same i use a cyclo evo save file with the Edge card so no worries there.

    I don't know how much you pay for one. But I paid £29.99 and 17.99 for a 4 gig sdhc memory card.

    Then i bought an Edge card for £14.99 plus a 8 gig sdhc for £29.99 as you could see I live in the united kingdom.

    Thanks.
    So if I can afford it, it's the better choice over all other cards, and will support most bugged games from the R4, right? Also, I'm just don't want to end up buying it and Platinum doesn't work, so everyone has it working, no problems right? Better safe than sorry.

    Final question, I think I've made up my mind.
    I've check the website, and I saw a recent update, but how often do they update CycloDS' firmware?

    Mostly once in two months, but quite often beta firmware is released for testing. [​IMG]

    They don't update unless they have new features or a specific big game doesn't work, because most games work out-of-the-box/download. [​IMG]
