    Hello,

    I'm only familiar with and have used an R4 for my DS Lite, and it only supports micro sd cards up to 2GB. I believe it's possible but not absolutely sure, just wondering if there are carts that work with the DS Lite that support memory cards larger than 2GB?

    If so, could you please list their name and if there's a specific model I should buy.

    Thanks!

    Pretty much anything in the past 2-3 years has SDHC (carts larger than 2GB) support, to the point that carts haven't even been advertising it because it's a given.

    Here's my copy-paste chart of the current best carts.

    [​IMG]
    • DS / DS Lite
      The card will work on an original (fat) DS or a DS Lite.
    • DSi / DSi XL
      The card will work on a DSi or DSi XL as well.
    • Game Updates
      Firmware updates are what let cards play newer games, these are the life-blood of the card.
    • SDHC
      SDHC refers to SD cards larger than 2GB (gigabytes). If there's no SDHC support, you can only use SD cards up to 2GB.
    • WiFi Update
      The Acekard 2i can update it's cheats (and get minor bug fixes) over WiFi without having to connect to a computer.
    • Clean Mode
      The DSTwo has special features to ignore AP in most games, letting you play them without having to wait for a firmware update first.
    • RTS
      The Real-Time Save (Save State) function lets you save and reload your game progress at any moment you wish.
    • In-Game Guide
      You can pull up text files and images in-game, in order to check a walkthrough or map you downloaded at any time during a game.
    • Slow Motion
      The card lets you slow down the game speed as you wish.
    • In-Game Cheats
      The card lets you create and modify cheats while the game is running.
    • Special Homebrew
      The card has multiple pieces of special homebrew, such as it's own GBA and SNES emulators, as well as text/PDF reader and video player.
    • Battery Life
      Unfortunately the DSTwo's extra CPU and RAM (which give it the special features) eat into the battery life a bit.

    Pretty much every card other than the original R4. It usually says if a card can do SDHC.

    Idunno', I remember hearing about that in a thread but don't remember seeing anything it could do once finished.

    DStools is a third party program and can't be considered an official feature of the DSTwo or the EOS firmware.
    It'd be nice if Team Supercard themselves made an official wifi update utility.
