    I guess many a time questions have been asked..ive loked through the forums for hours now reading different things....i cant seem to fathom things out..so ive always been told to ask if you dont know..

    I am going to purchase this card for my childrens units..

    it sent me to a link for the firmware i need

    http://filetrip.net/...od-R4-1-42.html

    i guess i dont need this if i use the firmware above?

    so far so good i guess...Now ive looked at the micro sd cards at play.com..i understand the DS card can only hold a 2GB micro card..Ive noticed on some it has a class Number...im looking for suggestions on play.com o the one which would do the best job.


    one last question..i downloaded that firmware as above...after unraring i get this folder..
    [​IMG]
    Inside the folder i have
    [​IMG]
    inside the -rpg folder i have
    [​IMG]

    after formating the micro sd card..Do i move the items from folder 2 to the Micro sd card?

    thanks for the help and im sorry if this has been covered before..

    Use Wood and just put the __rpg folder & the _DS_MENU file on the root of the SD card.

    Does it have to be Play.com? You can get a 2GB one from Amazon for £3.23
