    My kids have a 3ds XL each, one is version 7.0.0-13E and the other 6.3.0-12E.

    I am wanting to get them a card each and am thinking about just getting one that ONLY does DS games as it appears the newer ones that are doing the 3DS games are still developing at the moment, I might wait and buy those further down the track once they are further developed.

    What are the best options. It is for 2 children (6 yrs old and 7yrs old) so doesn't need to be too flashy. Just basic cards would be best I think.

    What should I look at buying please? Can I buy any from an Australian store so we could hopefully get them before Xmas?

    Thanks so much in advance. I am a bit lost when it comes to this kind of technology.

    I'm sorry but there is no solution for systems under those firmwares. They strictly must be between 4.1.0 and 4.5.0.

    The only options are flashcards made for DS games, which don't support 3DS games at all.

    DSTWO is a good option, since it loads DS games and GBA games though an emulador, as well as games for older system such as SNES.

    Your going to have to buy a new 3DS if you want to play 3DS games via flash cart. You can still find them on eBay if you look hard enough. If the item is second hand ask for the system version and if it is at or below 4.5 then get it. If it's brand new make sure it says (C) 2012 Nintendo on the box. DO NOT update once it arrives.

    EDIT

    I didn't read that your just looking for a card to do DS games. Since your buying for little kids I don't think they need the extra features of the DStwo. Just a cheap R4 should do the job. Don't get your hopes up for carts playing 3DS games in the future. It will probably be a few years before newer firmwares are hacked.

    To elaborate on kyogre123's answer

    For ds flashcards (plays ds roms):
    Here is a list of ds flashcards that work on 7.0.0-13E
    Make sure you check the websites on the cartridge itself
    The 2 I would recommend are:
    • R4iGold 3DS / RTS (r4ids.cn) : Should support all roms, cheap and gets updated quickly when new firmwares come out
    • Supercard DS2 (supercard.sc): Supports all roms, supports special homebrew like a gbaEmulator, relatively expensive compared to R4iGold 3ds
    Citation:http://pongupdates.wordpress.com/flashcards-working-on-3ds/

    For 3ds flashcards (plays 3ds roms):
    At the moment 3ds flashcards only work from 4.0 - 4.5.0-10X. If you want your kids to be able to use one of these flashcards I would recommend selling there 3ds and buying them a new one using this information provided by the gbatemp wiki

    Thank you, that is exactly what I was after. As I stated in my first post I will wait until the newer 3DS cards are further developed before buying any of them. We have a truckload of 3DS games already purchased anyhow.

    What size micro SD card should I get for these? Probably going to hold roughly 15-20 games?

    With the basic assumption of that the average game is about 64 megabytes
    A 1 gb micro sd should fit around 15 games
    A 2 gb micro sd should fit around 30 games
    A 4 gb micro sd should fit around 60 games
    A 8 gb micro sd should fit around 110 games
    A 16 gb micro sd should fit around 220 games

    Personally I would go with an 8 gb micro sd because the price difference isn't much

    just get a 16GB, the cards are extremely cheap ($10 USD)
    better to have more then enough just in case you add alot more games

    4 GB should be plenty. I used a 2 GB card with my original R4 (no SDHC support), and it was adequate for me, but I would occasionally have to swap out games.

    R4i Dual Core 2013 from r4ishdc.hk works fine on 7.0.0 after updating kernel and firmware that they released few days ago.
