    Hey people,

    Sooner or later, I'm looking to finally purchase a Slot 2 cart for my DS Lite. But what I really want is for the Slot 2 cart to hold my music, and nothing else.

    That is basically the only thing I would like a Slot 2 cart for. Because my EDGE's 4GB MicroSD is stuffed, and I can't put more than 10 songs on it to play via Moonshell. But please don't say buy a bigger MicroSD. Because that is not going to happen. =/ Also, I understand that a Slot 2 will need a MicroSD card to read off, and I happen to have a 2GB laying around I can use.

    This is where I am hoping there's a Slot 2 cart out there that can also run Moonshell, and allow me to play my music.

    I would really like to have my games and music in one handheld. I hate lugging around my PSP to play music when I know the DS is capable of doing it.

    So my main question is...Are there any Slot 2 flashcarts that supports music playback, and not just GBA roms?

    I don't know much about Slot 2 carts as you can see, because I have never owned one.

    Thanks in advance!

    Pretty much any slot-2 device with its own SD slot can do this, since you can use your EDGE as a NoPass to boot the slot-2 device in DS mode, from which point you can launch Moonshell from the slot-2's menu. Alternatively, if you DLDI patch the Moonshell.nds file for the slot-2 device and then run it through DLDI-noautopatch to prevent the EDGE from automatically overwriting the patch, you can run that from the EDGE menu and not have to bother with the slot-2 menu (the "moonshl" folder still needs to be on the slot-2 card for this to work).

    Some carts that will work include the slot-2 Supercard series (heck, even the Rumble series would work here, though you wouldn't have any GBA compatibility that way), the EZ-Flash IV, M3 Lite, etc.

    Just be warned that slot-2 devices don't support SDHC so the max card size you can use with them is 2 GB. Since that's what you've already got, you're fine, but don't try to get a bigger one.

    Oh cool. Thanks much for the info Dan. It helped lots.

    I guess the one I'm going for is the EZFlash 3 in 1. [​IMG]

    Confirming the RUMBLE card works fine [​IMG]

    Although would avoid the 3 in 1 as its only got a tiny amount of ram for GBA or temporary usage for Opera browser go for something like the EZ IV card or any supecard that can use an SD card and not an EPROM chip otherwise your not going to be able to get music on there!

    Which Supercard product is best for what I'm looking for? And one that has RAM?
