    I've got an ancient, fat DS and would like to conveniently play GBA/DS games stored on an sd card.

    Currently, I'm leaning towards buying the R4i Gold to play DS games but I'm not sure what the most useful cart would be.
    As for playing GBA games, what slot-2 cart should I purchase and from where?

    Thanks!

    I like the Acekard 2i and the EZ-Flash IV as the slot 2 option.

    The Acekard 2i has built in software to use the EZ-Flash.

    Those two pieces of hardware are the only reason why I haven't sold/thrown out my DS Lite. (It is the greatest thing since sliced bread.)

    Where might I purchase an EZ-Flash IV in the USA for the old DS?
    Is it possible to buy the slim version of the card and throw it into a full-sized gba cartridge?
    Thanks a lot.

    no you need the full sized cart for a fat ds. (i should say you cannot re size it)
    and hey i thought the 3 in 1 was the correct choice. someone explain?
    the iv uses min sd which is ancient.

    You should choose r4i gold released by r4ids.cn if you want a r4.

    I suggest going with the R4i gold from that site as well.
    nds-card.com is GBAtemp's official sponsor, so buying from them supports the temp!
