    Ok I already own an R4 with a sandisk 2gb microSd. But witht he news of R4 factories being shut down is it safe to say that it will be time to switch to the other slot-1 cart? I saw that R4 just put up an update to fix the FFCC "Thank You" screen, but how ong until they are finished or will they? Also been seeing some 4gb microSD HC cards hit the market and I know they wont work with the R4, but I hear they do with the CycloDS. So should I start looking at going for cycloDS or stick with R4 and just get another 2gb kingston mem stick since there like $12 now. Also is kingston a good brand I heard/read they are but sandisk is usually the winner for mem sticks. Just thought id ask while I was on here. Thanks for your time and reading/answering this.

    If you don't own any flash cart, I'd say to go with the CycloDS, as it has more features than the R4 for about the same price, on top of supporting MicroSDHC.

    By the way, the rumor about the R4 factory being shut down was proven to be false, and a Kernel update for the R4 was released two days ago, fixing the issue with Final Fantasy Moogle of Death glitch.

    In overall, if you need an SDHC card, go for the CycloDS. Otherwise, the R4 is still a valid card. Not the most feature complete, but decent enough for most applications and games.

    I recommend CycloDS if you can afford it. If you want something that's cheaper but just as good as Cyclo, then SC DS1 SDHC. (Supercard DSone SDHC)

    Here's how the list goes.

    CycloDS> SCDS1 SDHC> ACEKARD RPG> EDGE> DSTT> M3 REAL> R4/M3 simply.

    R4 are outdated, has no features, no SDHC support, and made just for Roms. In other words= R4SUX (Compared to the newer cards that are available currently.)

    With the SCDS1 now able to use other carts menu along side it's own, theres no contest.

    SCDS1 IS the best cart.

    Cyclo Ds. Great card! If you don't have enough money go with the Supercard DS One
