    Hi, I'm looking for a reliable flash card review website. Also looking for somewhere reputable to buy one.

    I've looked at many websites such as http://www.nds-card.com/ but have trouble determining the best flash card for me. It seems to be generic descriptions.

    I am only looking to play DS games on my 3DS, which from my understanding I can get a cheaper one - but don't want to lack functionality.

    Hopefully someone can help. Thanks!

    If you have CFW then you can use TWLoader, its not perfect but its good enough for me.

    The various flashcarts these days are all very similar. Most of them run Wood R4 so the UI is the same. Others run variations on ttmenu or the original R4 menu, which aren't as good. However a lot of them have a built in time bomb where once the 3DS' set date passes a certain date, the flashcart stops working.
    The one most people will recommend is this one: http://www.nds-card.com/ProShow.asp?ProID=149
    It doesn't have a time bomb and it has RTS. Other than that it's just your standard Wood R4 but it is still one of the best flashcarts on the market.
    At that price, you can't really go wrong.

    GBAtemp has flash cart reviews, by the way.

    Lol, it's ok. I actually don't mind because it saves me time from typing that out every single time. So you can keep quoting me ^_^

    I too can verify that the R4i Gold (http://www.nds-card.com/ProShow.asp?ProID=149) is a good reliable card with all the features you will need, at a pretty good price. You COULD just use TWLoader but that's still fairly limited in what it can actually play and how well it can play it, so flashcards are still the way to go.

    Thanks to all that just replied!

    I rather not use twloader due to its limitations. Just ordered the r4 find card! Can't wait!

    Thanks again
