just seen some dx deals being posted and a heads up from admin so i thought id post the best thing they sell!

here is an R4 ds flashcart, you can watch videos and play music on your ds plus do alot more cool things ;)

dx are the cheapest sellers of the cart afaik and it works out to about £16 delivered!!

This product is a must have for DS users!

standard postage takes about 7014 days but normally comes within about 7 for me, ordered around 15 items from them before and they have always been quick on delivery compared to other chinese/japanese retailers

no import tax or vat to be paid on these and the R4's are the latest version with no spring loaded card slot so no more faulty springs plus they are going to update the firmware so it can support SDHC mem cards upto 8GB (so far)

"standard postage takes about 7014 days "

updated link :)

Suggest the 'Go to Deal' link be updated as DX only sell this via their subsidiary company Volumerate at http://www.volumerate.com/details.vr/sku.1202 now.

thats pretty cheap eh. For anyone that doesnt know what R4 can do, check out this link.
Ive been trying to get hold of cyclo ds. That is in such short supply
#3
Voted hot - I got the M3 DS Simply (almost identical to this one - same unit but slightly different flash I think) for £26 back in May - this is a very good deal if it goes through okay!

For your "homebrew" items, it's literally copy and paste to memory card and away you go. Even my GF can use it and my 57 year-old land-lady.
#4
imo this is the best cart for the DS overall as its really cheap and the updates have come promptly (except for the latest which is highly expected)

yep copy and paste homebrew etc which can easily be found via google ;)

I got a DS One (SDHC) Supercard last week for £26. Takes the larger memory cards. Most DS cards out can only take up to 2gb MicroSD.

Reading the R4 spec, it says it can take upto 4gb MicroSD and reading the reviews it isn't SDHC compatible - Trouble is almost all 4gb cards available are SDHC, duno where you'd get 4gb non-SDHC memory from.
#6
I've ordered an R4 from DealExtreme. It arrived with no hassle at all. On the product description on the package they out 'LED flashlight' and mark it as a 'Gift' to avoid any duty being paid.

In my deal I got a Kingston 1GB MicroSD card on the advice of my Nintendo Guru who told me that the Japanese build of MicroSD's read faster in the R4s, compared to their EU counterparts.

If you want to check MicroSD compatibility then go here

yep the R4 team has confirmed that the next update will include SDHC compatibility so cards over 2GB will work in a while :)

I've ordered off Deal Extreme for a few years now. The amount of LED Flashlights i've recieved!! :giggle:
#9
just to let you guys know, 1gb will get approx 30 'homebrew apps' on from my experience....
#10
What conversion rate does it use then? Amount is in USD, when you pay by paypal, does it do conversion for you?

Ive been waiting for cyclo ds for ages, still no sign of it. I might as well give up and order this as this was the one I was originally going to get anyway.

EDIT: urm, yes it does!!! I tried going thru paypal and it comes up as £16.48

good price, thanks OP
#11
There other deals are ok also.....with the memory card. You could probably knock a few quid off by going elsewhere for the card but not much off so I will order them from deal extreme (this will be my second, its for my MUM!)

Well I saw a 2gb card for £11.69 delivered http://www.w2w.com/moreInfo.asp?code=SANTF2GB&tabGroup=GROUP-PC&tabGrpCode=COMP1&tabselect=Home
so that would make the total £28.17, as opposed to ~£31.67, so not that much difference and at least it would all arrive together..
#13
HOT! ordered one at ~£16.50. Cheapest I've seen so far.

I'm new to DS Lites (but not IT), yet I'm struggling to work out what's what here!

So this allows users to erhm, load 'stuff' into the DS Lite - presumably it needs a memory card of some sorts (so why the pic of the USB key in the first post above?)...ie if I order this, what else will I need to start rocking (just an SD card?)

Can someone explain the chain here?

Eg let's say I have a game that I've downloaded onto my PC....how will that work in conjunction with what's being discussed here? The game is dragged/dropped onto an SD card, the SD card slots into this widget, which then allows the said game to be played on the DS Lite?

correct, the usb device is to plug the microSD card into and then plug it into the pc, drag drop homebrew, then you pop the card into the R4 cart, and turn on ds, then simply click the line that describes the homebrew you are wishing to use, couldnt be easier.

The USB stick is a micro SD card reader. You put your games onto a microSD card (not included) and then put the card into the R4 which goes into the DS. Voila games on your DS.
#17
Bit of caution ordering memory as well as the R4 - The cost may push it above the level where you have to pay import tax. £18-ish ain't it? Assuming they put mark up the real cost the package.
#18
You also get a "shrinker" piece of software that removes the wireless multiplayer aspect to many games allowing more to fit on your memory card.

I might add that the homebrew games WILL work on Nintendo wireless with another DS as well as via the internet :) Good eh? No risk of slapped wrists.
#19
The USB stick is a special one which fits your MicroSD card into the top of it.

So the process after the inital setup is:

1. Stick in the MicroSD into the USB stick and put it into you computer.
2. Transfer the 'backup copy' of your game into the right directory
3. Remove the USB stick and take the MicroSD card out
4. Put the MicroSD card into the R4 cartridge and stick that in your DS.
5. Turn on your DS and navigate to 'Games' on your menu and select the appropriate game you want to play.

Job done.

Or like 7dayshop.com, they send it in two consignments to avoid tax legally.

Anyone know anything about DS Fire Link cart?

Its supposed to be similar to the R4 And M3 but said to be a lot simpler.

DealExtreme also sell this.
#26
The R4 team HAVEN'T confirmed SDHC support in the next firmware/kernel update. They are working on it, but no guarantees.

The trimmers DON'T remove the wireless functionality of games (although some older trimmers can remove the RSA block - any recent trimmer won't).

Also, the fastest MicroSD cards are Japanese (not taiwanese) Kingston and Toshiba (who make the japanese kingston cards). Some games won't run at the full original speed on the R4 if you use most other brands of card (including Sandisk ultra's), and a couple will crash.

Even with toshiba cards there are still a couple of problem games (tony hawks downhill jam is the most prominent - runs about 20% slower on the r4).

Still - it's one of the best of the last generation of flash carts and at £15 a bargain.

My trimmer does ... time for an update then!

Though I must add - it removed the download play aspect (i.e. Mariokart download for someone who doesnt have the game - it allows them to play a few courses etc), which really saved on a LOT of space.

I already have one of these but I voted hot, it's a fantastic deal!

Is this the same thing. It's in Aria's super special section (8 available). It's £22.31 (£26.99 delivered I think) and includes a 2GB MicroSD card.
#34
don't think the 2Gig card will be included even though it's in the picture.

Thanks, voted hot & got one £15.50. What size & where is the best place for the sd card?

Been on to Aria, this does NOT include a micro sd card, shame.

these work fine and cost only £15ish
#39
The DS Firelink cart comes with 2GB built into the the cart itself.

Its even simpler then the R4 Card. No need to copy software from a CD its all pre-installed.

All you do is connect the DS to your PC via the additonal USB connector card which slots in the GBA slot on the DS and simply drag and drop.

It also works out cheaper as you don't have to buy an SD card separate.
