    I just got a DSi for my daughter and have been looking at the flash carts. I am torn between the M3i, DSonei, and the AceKard 2i. The card must be easy to use as she is 12 and I have her do all the game install (loading) herself. She will be using it mainly for game play of course. Any suggestions would be nice
    Thanks!

    Check the firmware of the DSi. If it is 1.3 (or lower), any will work well, just make sure you update the bootloader of the flash cart before updating the firmware of the DSi. If the firmware is 1.4, I would recommend the M3i Zero, because it can update the bootloader without running in a DSi. The Acekard can't update the bootloader without running in the DSi, and if the firmware is 1.4, the Acekard will already be blocked and unable to load up to do said bootloader update to bypass 1.4.

    Since your daughter will be using it, i recommend acekard 2i, because she can just drag and drop every game she wants very easaly into a games folder or something and browse thru it with ease. Just make sure, that your dsi isn't on 1.4, otherwise you'll need to update it first before you can use it. Some webshops do that these days for a smal amount of money. You can also do it yourself, but then you need a dslite or dsi under 1.3 firmware.
