    A few months ago, I purchased a 2 MB Fire Card for my NDS after a regrettable amount of research. I figured cost was quality.

    Flash (hah!) forward to now. I realized this with my Pokemon Platinum problem. Unable to use cheats, emulate GBA games, compatibility problems, poor construction, and shoddy workmanship made me realize that I desperately need a new card to replace this garbage. I want to be able to play Mother 3 on the go. I want to be able to save platinum. I don't want FMVs crashing me. I want to be able to use codes like AR.

    Can anyone give me a recommendation of a flash card that isn't a shitty N-card clone?

    They all have pretty much the same features these days but I would recommend the iTouchDS. It's cheap and it works great.

    I've not ordered mines yet but I personally just read all the reviews from this site and then decided upon the Cyclo DS.

    Wherever the next link takes me.
    The CycloDS is a good cart but is horribly overpriced.


    The iTouchDS has all the features necessary to make a great cart and its at a great price.

    Yeah, I know this question must be obnoxious for you guys, but I wasn't sure where to go. Thanks though. Could you point to some reviews that aren't "TRIPLE STAR MUST BUY PRODUCT". I want actual objective information.

    CycloDS seems to be the most recommended, what does it have that iTouchDS doesn't?

    m3 real or itouchds (just make sure you get the sakura firmware!!!)

    Other notable cards are:
    Cyclo DS
    Acekard
    Edge
    DSTT(Cheap cheap cheap cheap!!!!)
    ez flash V

    I donno almost an card you get that got a gold or silver award in the reviews on this website will more than satisfy your needs. people are really picky, but in my honest opinion, i think if you get any card that got a gold or silver award, they all have basically the same features but just different interface/gui. Minus a few minor features, in game text reader/rts ect.

    THey are all the same minus a few minor features if you get a gold or silver awarded card.

    No slot-1 card can emulate GBA games, by the way.

    if you're not planning to get a DSi, i'd say one of these:
    - cyclo evo + ez 3in1
    - m3real + m3 gba expansion

    yes there are cheaper carts, but you get what you pay for...

    Slot 1 cards can't emulate GBA games.
    If you want GBA games, buy the slot-2 EZ Flash 3-in-1.
    And a CycloDS.

    M3real + M3gba expansion pack and make sure to use a Sakura firmware if you want a GUI that capable of best playing music and video than moonshell and then you can save more and more skin. 10/10

    If you want low cost get the acekard 2 or edge and an EZ 3 in 1(for gba games). Or you could just have a regular slot 2 without a slot 1. I think that they play nds games as well as gba.
