    Does anyone know if there's something like a tiny "pouch" that sticks onto your DS (I have a DS Lite) that could hold a couple of MicroDS cards? It should be very tiny and have room for at least one card, preferably 3. There's got to be a market for something like this, even for phones or whatever.

    Yeah...I thought about that AFTER I lost my microSD. It was a 512mb luckily I still got my 1gb...

    You can just leave your microSD in the SD adapter and place that with your DS games (or in the same pocket as where your DS games are kept). This way they won't [shouldn't] get lost.

    I have the Swing-Grips from Gamestop (don't bother to check their site, it isn't listed there) with my DSlite and it has an area under the DS for 3 DS carts and a stylus. You could use one of the spaces for the DS cart to hold two microSD or miniSD cards in their standard SD converter (like I do) or all three spaces to hold 6 of the suckers. If you don't need the convertor, you coudl store a whole bunch of them in there.

    I have pics of my DSlite in the Swing-Grips, but I don't have a shot of the compartments underneath........

    Hang on.....let me take a quick pic of the compartments under the DS.....I'll post the older pics and the new one that shows the inside area....

    ....here we go:

    The slightly yellowed area in the third pic is a rubberized sort of stuff for comfort and added protection. I have both my miniSD and microSD cards in their converter in that first slot.

    The grips might be kinda ugly to some people, especially if you don't have a white DSlite, but they are a godsend for people that get hand cramps while playing the DSlite. No ports on the DS are blocked.

    They're about $10 at Gamesop. They are made by Naki.

    I just use the little plastic key-chain case that is holding the R4 initially.

    Thanks for the ideas. I'm using a G6 in my slot 2 (for GBA games and browser memory), so I don't really want to take a chance on damaging it. I was thinking about getting a grip/battery anyway; that might be the way to go.

    Same here. Well, I keep the microsd in the adapter and then put it in the R4 casey thing.

    I was gonna do that... But my SuperCard Lite is in the slot-2 permanently so I can keep a MicroSD card in that.

    Actually, I store mine in my dust cover. If you notice on the bottom of the dust cover there is space to fit a MicroSD card.
