    I dont want to p**s anyone off here, I have read the reviews and searched the forums but the ammount of information is massive and I simply cant figure out which cartridge to purchase.

    I only have a GBA at the moment but plan to upgrade to a DS in about a year (need a new PC first).
    I would like to be able to run homebrew code. Media (i.e. SD / Mini-SD) isn't really an issue nor is cost.
    Is the RTC thing an issue? tried to find a list of games which requires one but to no avail.
    Movie watching would be nice but again not really required.
    Oh yeah, and playing "backup" games is essential as I travel alot due to work.

    So which cartridge would you guys recommend?

    Thanks in advance.

    Supercard miniSD?

    I don't even own any kind of cart at the moment (making a paypal account right now..) but from my massive reading, i guess that's a good choice from your specifications, thats an alright match.

    There's a good amount of very capable GBA flash cards. If you don't plan on getting a ds for about a year I would definatly go for a GBA cart and wait for the DSL solutions to improve. My suggestions would be the EFA-linker, EZ Flash 2 or 3 or if you want removable storage I would go M3 just because the supercard compatibility is supposed to be kinda spotty.

    Thanks Guys for the response, I decided to go for the M3 Mini SD, as its compact, had the best reviews overall and I got it delelivered for £45.

    Now all I need is the software to program this thing.

    Thanks
