    I have a DSi, a 2DS and a 3DS XL, will either one of these work for me? I've never worked with these things but i saw someone selling these at 10 euros each so i figured i'd give it a try.

    I also need a sd card to put inside these right? And then a way for the card to connect to the PC?

    What's wrong with older cards?

    The problem is that they likely won't work on later firmware, especially on the 2/3DS.

    I can't answer your first question, but these cards use Micro SD cards. You connect them to your computer by using a Micro SD card reader, or with an SD card adapter, by using an SD card reader.

    The Supercard DsTwo can work with 3ds and Dsi and is updatable if it needs to.
    Usually the new R4i cards have a few updates then you need to buy another card again otherwise you can't use it on the latest firmware
    So yeah Ds Two

    Yep like that
    It's possible you need to update it on an original ds or and older 3ds/dsi version if it's preowned

    The DSTWO doesn't need an older DS to be updated but other cards do.

    Yes. You can download the kernel (and the update if necessary) from the official homepage.
    Incase that the DSTWO doesn't work on any DS you have (and shows "an error has occured...") please ask again here.

    Not if you buy the R4i Gold 3DS one from www.r4ids.cn. :)
    Which Flash Cart Should I Get?
    It's pretty good value for the price, but obviously it wont be better than DSTwo in terms of features etc, so of course get the DSTwo if you can, OP. 20 euro for the DSTwo is pretty good price too I think. :)

    Its a decent card, it will run every game
    But if you features including a gba/snes emu and real time menu with a bunch features then get the dstwo

    Nope, I meant this one. That other one is not a trusted cart, I wouldn't recommend it.

    I don't have DSTwo myself so I'm not aware of all the features it has, but I know that the R4i Gold has inferior homebrew emulator support (SNES and GBA emulators do exists that work on this cart, but they are far behind the DSTwo specific emulators in terms of emulation accuracy and game support). And most importantly, it has had few hardware revisions in the past because of 3DS firmware updates, unlike DSTwo which has never required a hardware update. But, the newest revision of R4i Gold 3DS hasn't been blocked in over a year now and Nintendo hasn't really been blocking DS mode flashcarts in the last few 3DS firmwares either, so it probably doesn't matter that much anymore.

    So, I'd say, if SNES/GBA emulation is important to you, you should pick the DSTwo and not even think about any other carts, but if it's not that important to you, the R4i Gold(from r4ids.cn website) is not a bad choice either. :)

    Honest question, how can you even tell the difference? They all look so similar.

    Are you saying that from personal experience that one is better or is it just an established fact within the community that that one is superior?
