    so im switching from my supercard lite and superkey to either an R4, M3 DS simply, or supercard ds one.
    what im wondering is what i would have to do with my microSD card when switching to either of these different one slot solutions.
    suggestions on which one i should switch to is also welcome.

    thanks in advance. [​IMG]

    Format it? [​IMG]

    As for suggestions, I'd go with the R4. But don't take my word for it!

    Backup your saves and format it. You will then need to convert each save using the online converter/bundled R4 save converter. Your roms are patched so you can't use those.
    Go with the R4.

    I absolutely love my R4. I bought one for my sister, I've recommended it to friends, and I have had no complaints yet.

    Go for the MIGHTY SC-ONE. You dont get stuck with the biggest save file (more save space). Better homebrew compatibility. The springs dont get broken

    AH! i didn't know SC-ONE save files where like that. Because one thing i dislike about most slot one cards is the always 512kb saves (stupid padding).

    Put it this way OSW. If you have 20 games on a R4 thats 10 MB of savefiles. Thats at least one crappy DS game

    so if i were to get the R4, i would have to backup my save files, and re-patch the roms. what about doubling the save sifles for the R4, and would i have to do this with the SC ds one? oh yea, how can i tell where my microsd was made, i have a kingston.
