    my dad works for nintendo.
    3ds games are different from ds games. they are like 2 different consoles...
    the 3ds can be modified to allow you to run games of it's SD card... with the 3ds.guide previous user linked above
    for DS games right now you need a DS flashcart. (a ds cart with a micro sd slot) or if you preefer to save your wallet, some proggress has been done to run ds games of the 3ds sd card however we are still not there yet...

    a DS card will only be able to launch ds games (and ds homebrew)
    a 3ds cart is now obsolete which enables you to run 3ds games (but you can just install cfw and run them off the 3ds internal sd)

    you cant install a website....
    not "just cfw". homebrew launcher is the lowest point in hacking your device... so "cfw" means you did it all the way to the end through decrypt9, godmode9 and luma, configured everything and have FBI on the home menu.

    Maybe CIAngel, but that one's pretty outdated.

    I had the same question regarding which card. I saw a lot of suggestions for Gateway and R4i Gold. But those I suppose are mostly aimed at playing 3DS games as well? Which I don't really need it for because I have CFW. So this card is best for NDS games?
