    I agree, you pay extra but you'll never need to worry if it will work or not. it has for years and their reputation backs/supports that it always will It's been my first, and my last since... well had mine for? since the Ds lite released?.. when it first came out.. I guess... looks like & been thru .. hell, works like heaven, 'nuff said.

    Has anyone bought from that site? I just went to buy the card, it redirected me to some site where I pay for this stuff, I typed in my card details and it said payment successful then it redirected me back to that page, now when I go to order status it shows Awaiting Payment, it has been nearly an hour, I'm kind of worried since this is my first time buying from a page other than amazon or ebay.

    my dad works for nintendo.
    FAST#### is more experienced (a lot more i think) into gba scene and flashcarts....

    Voidition check with your bank if the money is already delivered, and check if status is still on waiting...

    otherwise make a dispute\email the website support...

    and buy from a normal website like nds-card.com or other recommended by gbatemp regular members..

    Nope, nothing has been deducted from my bank account, I'm just going to send them an email saying that they should cancel the order and that's it.

    I sent them an email to cancel my order, also two questions, what happens if they don't cancel my order and the payment goes through? What should I do then? 2nd question, I'm buying this card for my normal DSi http://nds-card.com/ProShow.asp?ProID=507 and I'd like to know if I need a micro sd to SDHC adapter or does it come with one/ Or do I not need one at all?

    You don't need one at all, that card will take any microSD card.

    SDHC denotes the capacity limitation/spec of the card. SDHC includes any form factor SD card from 4 to 32GB. They're also backwards compatible, so you can use a regular microSD card that's not an SDHC card (so 2GB and lower will work as well)

    Thanks, I bought it, waiting for my order at R4iGoldPro.com to be cancelled now :)

    I hope they actually cancel it and if they don't then I will be lost :(

    "working" and good support behind the hardware is 2 different things, shit that 2014 card thats like the 8th version form the same manufacture as they expect u to just buy the next reversion as they dropped the previous version support.

    Who cares about the support, if it works then its fine, im not buying it for a 3ds im buying it for a dsi which hasnt been updated in a while so you basically dont need anymore updates for the flash card meaning that support doesnt matter

    As much as I hate advocating shit-tier clone cards, if you're planning to only use it on a DSi/XL or anything older, you're not gonna run into a "support" issue anymore.

    If you ever plan on getting a 2/3DS/XL and want to use your card to play DS games on it (NOT 3DS games) I'd recommend you steer clear of pretty much anything other than the Supercard DSTWO.

    Edit - although, one thing I would recommend if you go with this, once you get it working with the kernel software downloaded, keep a backup of the kernel on your computer in a safe spot named so you know what it is. When the manufacturer inevitably drops support for the card it's likely going to be hard to find the kernel again in the event of you needing to set up a new microSD or format your current one. No kernel means it doesn't work.
