Well, there is one already, but it is just 512Mbit, and that is pretty small, forgot the name though, will post it as soon as I remember it

Then there also is Ninja DS, which is not yet released, and it's a ds flashcart which uses SD memory.

Well there is a product out/soon to be released, but no one has their hands on it as far as I know. Linky

The main problem is that space is pretty tight in there... that flash cart above only has 512Mb (64MB) of space. I can image there being problems cramming something larger in there, and I wouldn't expect the carts to go above 1024mb (max size of a single DS game).

People currently use the GBA slot for DS based solutions because there's more space available for memory, production costs are low and you can use the carts for GBA games as well.

I'm getting one unit for review. I should receive it next week or a little later.
Can't wait to try it

I hope the burner can also dump DS carts...

Don't hold your breath Costello - I pre-ordered one and it was supposed to be sent out a while ago and should be here by now. It's looking more and more to me like a scam, because my money was taken but the person doesn't reply to e-mails anymore.

I'm hoping it's not the case, but it's not looking good right now.

where did you both order it from? minionlinestore i suppose? or was it that ioffer page?
... mmh ... i thought i read somewhere here on the board that someone received it -- but i can't remember where ... but maybe it was just said to get some people buying it

You know for certain because....?

MiniOnlineStore have been sellers for a long time. I have bought stuff from them.

@ the UFP512, it was delayed and is just now being sent out. There is an explanation and apology about this on the site.


The moan about them being slow to respond to e-mails is true. They do answer eventually though, and everyone does get their goods.

Yes, I recall two people having said they have them. One is the above mwingboy, and the other was meccabolix. However meccabolix said the compatability was bull, while mwingboy aid it was perfect.

... man, I've been playing Phoenix Wright too much. I feel like I'm analyzing conflicting testimonies in court or something. OBJECTION!

Either way, I'm waiting on results from a more reputable source: e.g. Qrayzie or Costello

'meccabolix' got the UMC not the UFP512, after teething troubles with his UMC, he reported on the Ndsgba website a few key titles that didn't work properly. The site admin said that these would be fixed in the 15th of July update. It will be in interesting to see if this holds true.

'mwingboy' managed to get his before they were even supposedly shipped on the 3rd_July ??

Slot 2 flash carts are working so well these days that i dont really see much need for a slot 1 device. At least not at this point in time anyway. If things were different and hundreds of said games didnt work it'd be a different story.

I appreciate this post.

My package contains an Ultra Media Cart/Ultra FlashPass 512M & the Ultra FlashKey. I would be awfully cheesed if it didn't show up. Especially since the latter two items are essential for the NoPass comparison!

Since it is possible to run the code from the GBA slot and it is cheaper to develop old GBA carts then new smaller DS carts, that´s the way it´s been.
The maxsize of the NDS-card can probably be bigger if they make the cart longer so it´s having a part of the cart outside the DS, but most people would probably not buy that.

A slot 1 card would be nice as it would allow you to use the slot 2 Rumble Pak, or possibly the Opera web browser RAM expansion. Unless someone can bring out a slot 2 cart that does these things too.
