    I got my R4 stolen a while ago and I was thinking about getting another one. But, I've been reading that it's not a good idea since it's not in production anymore. I want to get something not too expensive, I dont want to spend over $30. I was thinking about getting an Acecard. But, I saw the SuperCard Lite and thought it was really cool since it fits in the gba slot and plays gba games as well as ds games and emulators. But, I dont know much else about it.. Any suggestions?

    R4 is an absolute no-no. Any slot-2 (GBA slot) carts for DS games are also a bad idea, as they're not supported anymore. Currently the best carts are the Acekard 2i, the CycloDS Evolution, and IMO, the iEDGE.

    So I guess I'll go for the AceKard then. Where can I get it cheapest without getting ripped off? I couldnt find it when I searched dealextreme.com.

    IMO isn't a flashcart, it stands for "In My Opinion". [​IMG]
    Even if you don't have a DSi, usually the DSi carts are better than their DS counterparts. For example, the Acekard 2 has a nasty saving bug not found in the 2i. You can get the 2i for $25 from RealHotStuff

    Not to be a naysayer, but I thought dealextreme removed all flashcards from their website? I mean, that link works, but actually trying to get the information about the item brings up a no go. My biggest question is, are you a witch?

    It is a work around http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=200944

    Several users have bought and received Acekard 2is using this method. DX still sells them however they have to hide them like this because Paypal requested that they be removed.

    I actually just got my Acekard 2i in the mail yesterday from DealExtreme. Took about a month to get here, but no biggy. Works great, too!

    All of mine sat on Waiting For Supplier for a few days before shipping. Because they don't have them on their site, they must be selling a fraction of what they were before and so probably hold less stock. Give it a few more days before looking for another supplier, they are easy to cancel and get a refund from but that also normally takes 3 days to happen.

    He said he didn't want to spend over $30.

    If you know of retailers selling the CycloDS for under $30 shipped, feel free to let us know.

    Less then $30?

    Why even list the Cyclo?


    You may be able to find good deal on the CycloDS forums, they sometimes have people selling their Cyclo at discaount prices...

    You have to be a member of the forums, obviously.
