How do YOU make backups of your existing games, rather than have to download them??
#2
is that a question to me or everyone in general? cant see how it really matters, i know people struggle to find a reliable uk based company for these so i have given the option of this one and the R4 in another thread.

As it was in capitals I think he means YOU. Not much use if you cant dump your own games is it or is this just a piracy device?
#4
oh no, here we go again, the do gooders come on and start asking prim and proper questions about legalities. sorry for sounding harsh but it really does my head in when you post a good deal and others start criticising. these are legal and are mainly used for playing mp3's , homebrew games and videos. yes you can play "backups" but what people choose do with them is their business.
me personally i download almost everything i can, if its on the internet, might as well use it.
i have posted these deals because on the forums, others are buying and selling chipped consoles and r4's and m3's, just thought i would give a secure way for people to get them.
again. sorry if it reads like i am going off on one but it saves anyone posting about piracy and that, i guess a big company like aria pc would not sell anything illegal anyway?

Anyone in general

cant see how it really matters


In the description it says that is what you can do. When people get these it is the next question they generally ask, how can I get the ROMs? The description implies you can get them from your existing carts, but I have not been able to find out how to do that - hence my question.

My old ISP sent me an email asking me to justify why I was downloading copyright protected material the first time I used bit torrent to download a DS ROM. Since changed, but it put me off doing so.:x

Thanks. You seemed to have taken an objection to the question, there was no hidden meaning to it!:thumbsup:

ok thats cool, totally understand where you are coming from now. pretty unlucky with the rom thing though!

Well, looking back I can now see what you thought I was implying:oops: which wasn't the case at all.

The sales info said "you can make backups of your DS games" - I was simply asking how the purchaser, who ever that may be, could make a backup of an existing game if they required (as Aria imply you can) rather than download via a newgroup or bit torrent.
#8
So is this basically the same as the r4?

hmmm, i think we are tip toeing around this one! there is a device you can get that lets you plug in the cartridges and then back them up but i dont no where to get them.
if you need to know anything else, just send me a PM:whistling:

I take it you noticed my avatar;-)

I ask purely out of interest, I always wondered how they used to dump GB/NES/Megadrive games and seeing as the DS is the current thing thought you may know lol.

so i am told, i got the R4 myself and did post a thread to that but it got removed because i mentioned a certain search engine.
heres the R4 for £27.99 delivered:
http://www.supawemo.com/products

not the cheapest but based in birmingham and a two day delivery.
#12
Thanks for the link, I have the R4 myself but was thinking of buying one as a present, but since I have, as always, left it too late, I can't order from dealextreme as it wouldn't be here in time.

ok, sorry about that. you probably know what i was ranting about then, with some of the people that pop on here:thumbsup:
a bit like my post further up, i bet there is another device but i know some sites to cut the corners!

Get a CycloDS Evolution which cost £30. It has SDHC support
#15
To get this to be a 2GB Backup Cart will cost over £40 as you still need a Micro SD Card.

It's also no good for younger kids who can't read.

If you want one for younger kids consider getting a 2Gb DS-Xtreme as it's Operating System is Icon based ! :thumbsup:

You need a N-Card linker USB slot-1 released by DSGBA Team
#17
Again out of interest, whats the average size of a DS rom. (awaits some smartarse giving external dimensions of the cart lol).

Normally between 4mb-132mb. Longer games with movies like resident evil, final fantasy are 132mb each.
Roms comes in 8mb, 16mb, 32mb, 64mb, 128mb, 132mb. Trim the rom to save space.
#22
Must be good then, if you can get the images:thumbsup:
#23

I got one of these for my daughter (5 years old) as she lost 2 of the 3 games I got her within a couple of weeks of her birthday! Its a lifesaver as she does not have to change the cartridge anymore and does not lose them either! It is perfect for kids as it shows icons of the games so they don't have to be able to read to select the correct game. Feels a bit wrong using but when you have lost £50+ worth of games it seems fair - we do own the copyright to them after all (and I am sure still have the carts somewhere in the house!!!)

If you want cheapest the r4ds is best what it offers.

If you have more money then get CycloDS Evolution best Slot 1 Devices out there and also SDHC upto 32GB microsd SDHC memory.

If you can wait, NEW Acekard R.P.G. looks really good until next firmware is released

DS-Xtreme not so good, rubbish flashing light :whistling:

Don't look hardly any different from 6 other cards I reviewed on GUI

I wouldn't under estimate youngest now a days, just show them once and their away. Beside all roms have ICONS :thinking:

Sorry but, DS-Xtreme is overpriced!

My mates kids couldn't work the R4 or M3 as they couldn't read so i went for the DS-Xtreme for my kids.

At £79 it's WELL worth it considering once you have any Backup Cart ALL the games are FREE anyway ! :thumbsup:

As i keep saying 'for younger kids there is NO alternative' ! :roll:

I have to agree with all of the above comments. Sorry but the £70.00+ thing is unreal IMHO :thumbsup:
#37
Side spinning the subject - but those suggesting systems for under-5s that can't yet read, what games are there out there for the DS that are also suitable?

I've currently got a DS with a few GBA games, but can't find anything that looks useful for the DS? Obviously kids are bright, and they'll start to recognise words like "Start" and the little icons, but I'm still unsure about what games she'll be able to pick up and enjoy (4 year old by the way)

You really ARE nuts!

The R4 and M3 are completely skinnable. Just choose a simpler skin. There's an ICON for games, which takes you straight to - guess what - a LIST of GAMES! Which, amazingly, all have ICONS too!

You paid more than double what you had to. Stop putting the R4/M3 down, if you knew how to set it up properly you would have found it as straightforward as the hilariously overpriced DS-Xtreme.

Asusboy, would Dealextreme put Flashing Light as the description by default or do you need to request it? I ask in theory of course...

they do it by default
