    What happened to R4DS original? I remember when I bought mine from amazon before they were banned. Now you can't even buy from shoptemp and they cheapest UK seller is sold out :( does anyone know the best place to buy genuine R4DS cards?

    The R4 hasn't been produced in years, any shops will be selling 1:1 clones (but they'll still run wood and such).

    You are aware that the original R4 doesn't run on the DSi/3DS and can't work with SDHC cards, right?

    The R4 is pretty much no longer in production, there is a 1.1 clone, but I suggest going with the R4i Gold from this site. It works with Wood R4, SDHC, and DSi/3DS (just playing DS Roms that is)

    Yeah I am aware that it wouldn't run on dsi, I was going to buy one for someone. It is interesting that there is a 1:1 clone though :ninja:. That R4i gold looks pretty good, I'll look into it thanks :)

    How about this one? Is this one worth buying; is it compatible with Wood?

    No, you want the one from R4iDS.CN, not any other site. Also it's not "R4i Gold Plus", or "R4i SDHC Hyper Extra Edition KING MEGA TITS". Pay careful attention to the name.

    I would not suggest gamekool. The few times I have bought from them, my shipping took forever and they even screwed up my address.
    I would suggest this site, I just bought from them recently and can confirm that they ship very quickly and the card is real. Plus it's cheaper.

    I can vouch for zhuzhuchina, i'm in the UK and i received a flashcart from them in just over a week.

    If i didn't find a good UK site then i would still be using them now.

    The model that Peter Gatens and The Catboy linked are good, yes.
