    I saw alot of topic on where to buy a CycloDS, but, there are mostly people located in US, Canada or such. Some of the sites recommended, such as modchip no longer sells it anymore.
    I know it's really long after that i wanted to buy one now, but im really new to this and really wanted to get one. I live in Singapore so i'll like to ask where i may get it at a good deal and which type of memory card should i get? MicroSD, kingston or some others? I'm not really sure what other cards there are available, so i hope someone can point it out to me.
    Thanks. [​IMG]

    You live in singapore? Awesome!
    My dad lives there, so I've been there to visit him a few times.

    If you get a SDHC for the CycloDS, it won't really matter which one you get. Even shitty SanDisk can run games like Castlevania: PoR fine. If you get a non-SDHC MicroSD, Kingston or any other brand card where the MicroSD says SD-C01G for 1GB MicroSD, and probably SD-C02G for 2GB. Lots of cheap brands buy kingston and rebrand them. However, only the japanese Kingston MicroSD are any good (those are the ones that say SD-C01G)

    The second time I was in singapore, I found a store that sold japanese 1GB Kingston MicroSD in sim lim, but I can't remember what the name of it was.

    For the flashcart, you could try eBay or any flashcart site that ships worldwide, I'm pretty sure at least some of the GBAtemp affiliates ship worldwide.

    Ebay refuses to sell flashcarts because they lead to illegal action. So don't bother searching there. Amazon on the other does sell them, but I don't believe they carry Cyclods.
