    Hi everyone, I apologize if this questions been covered to death but I wanted some good opinions on this subject.

    If GameYeeeah ever decides to ship my R4, I want to have a decent slot-2 card to go with it so I can back up my collection of old GBA games and have access to the extra ram so i can use the browser and various homebrews.

    I just dont really know which card is a good one. What do you guys suggest?

    That's not really classified as a slot 2, more like an expansion pack only. At least for me.

    If you want a fully functional slot 2 with its own memory, get an EZFlash IV or a G6.

    M3 perfects are the best if you don't mind spending the extra cash. They can play all GBA roms cut and paste method. Very easy and have ram and everything. They can also play 99% of all NDS roms so you can use it as your slot 1 backup just in case.

    Oh cool, and thats compatable with the R4? I know that the R4 can switch over to a slot-2 device but I didnt know that it included the more advanced devices. I might consider that.

    Every slot 2 is compatible with the R4, just hit the boot to slot 2 option in the man menu.

    Cool, thanks I wasnt sure if it was every card or limited to certain ones. That certainly opens up a few more options for me.

    Thanks a ton for all the help everyone.

    But for the EZFLash 3-in-1, you have to boot it from the games menu. INstall Rudolph tools on the root of your SD (I think you need to do this for it to work) and select that to use the Expansion pack.

    I will probably just go for the more expensive M3 perfect lite.

    Personally, I've taken advice from a lot of DS guys and told me that an EZFlash IV is probably better than an M3 Perfect. That's what I got, and it's working awesome. Except I gotta redownload the EZSkinner, my EZup binary is getting weird when I want a new skin.

    Good choice. I would personally get mine from here. If you live in the US and order from there it should get to you in less than 5 days!!!!
