    Which flashcard should I buy for my 3DS? I want one that can play the vast majority of the DS library. My 3DS firmware is updated as of Paper Mario: Sticker Star and I have an Australian system.

    One's inner self
    Dstwo, or a R4i Gold by the R4ids.cn team
    they both have the top compatibility with games, dstwo has more features but it costs abit more

    the problem with card is not there gaming ability, the way to judge the best is the Firmware Updates provided
    DSTwo, is always the fastest to receive updates, R4i Gold by the R4ids.cn shortly follows after it

    Firmware is what has to be updated to work on a new 3DS update, so the card must be updated before the console,
    Kernel is what needs updating for newer games to work, the DSTwo does normally not even need and update, all other cards always do

    I don't intend to ever update my 3DS again, so I guess it's not an issue. I'll get the DS Two anyway to be safe. Thanks!

    if you wish you play newer games, there wont be a choice, Paper Mario applying 4.4.0-10 & Luigi's Mansion 2 applying 4.5.0-10 so its all dependant if you want to play newer games llike Pokemon X or Y when they release

    Both DSTwo and R4i are compatible with 3ds. I STRONGLY recommend DSTwo instead, since R4ids.cn team drags their knuckles to get updates and fixes.
