    I bought a few R4 Revolution for DS cards for backups for family (after Mario and Sonic was destroyed in the washing machine, the $10 price for the R4 backup unit seemed like a no brainer).

    I've only ever used DSTwo before, so I'm not sure how to set this up. I know that all I need to do is drag and drop firmware into the root of the memory card, but I don't know which firmware. I've heard that the only way to get Pokémon Black/White 2 to work is to use Wood. This is the one I bought this time for family to backup their DS/Lite collection (these won't ever be used on a DSi).

    R4's dont get firmware updates, hence why they dont work on Dsi/3DS but that isnt an issue as your only using on DSLite/DSPhats

    Wood is a Kernel, Kernels load games and affect compatibility with games
    so as long as your card is a genuine card supported by wood you should be good :D
    you just extract it to the root of the SD card and you should be good to go

    Cheers, this is exactly what I needed to know :) I'd always played it safe with the DSTwo, but they are just too expensive to buy a handful of.
