    Could someone tell me which flash cart is the best for use only on the Nintendo DS and DS Lite? I need to get 4 so cheaper would be better. Thank you... [​IMG]

    in your heart...coz secretly you love me !!!!
    a used one!
    all the used cards are usually cheap
    also a cheap alternative would be a original r4 with wood
    but be aware the original r4 can support only 2gb

    Well, There is the cheap R4, they go around for 2-5 dollars, even new. Another good option may be the DSTT, they go for 4-10 dollars.

    It depends on what you need. If you're sure it won't be used on anything else then just picking up a 1:1 R4 would work, though they're limited to 2GB memory cards so an R4i Gold or Acekard 2i is

    Thanks for the replies, friends. Is there any other limitations or drawbacks from the original R4 card besides the memory card capacity? Like Real Time Save or something else? I'm getting these for my cousins and I don't want to be too cheap. [​IMG]

    Real-time save is not a standard feature on flash carts, only a few carts have it.
    In fact, ANY in-game actions are non-standard.

    Cheats work, but you can't change/enable/disable them while a game is running.

    Hmm so what flash cart would you recommend that's somewhere in the middle in price and features? Something that can support high capacity sd's and is around $10 maybe?

    R4 Gold. They are officially supported by WoodR4 and support higher capacity memory cards. You can also get them for 10-12 dollars if you look in the right places.

    If you're willing to shell out a bit more money, the EZ-Flash Vi has real-time save, if you don't want to spend that much money and want RTS.
    I'm not sure what the game compatibility is like on the EZ5i, though.

    The ~$10 ones are the ones that don't have any of the in-game features (other than cheats and soft-reset).
