Think it was me trying to make things better when his dad left us, although the Wii was this xmas, think he's played on it twice !

Still, he's a great lad (not that I'm biased), but with all that I'm struggling what to get him for his birthday !

Oh shucks, what did I do? I'm guessing that's the R4DS? To be honest, I didn't even know they existed til I saw them on HUKD.

Guess I'm asking for everything except then ??

How much are you looking for for Scooby Doo ?

He was into scooby for a while, I'd better just check with him though as he's growing up fast !

i have a DSTT which is the same as a R4DS (better and easier to use) . im looking for £25 delivered.
its not illegal to buy an R4DS or DSTT, but it is with games on it. they are meant to be used to back up games you already own.

Can I ask (& call me dim) but is a DSTT / or R4DS a memory card? If so, what size memory is your DSTT? and say I was to copy Christophers pre bought games onto it so that he didn't have to carry them round (I'm learning !), how many games would it fit (roughly)?

the R4DS and DDTT is just a game cartridge, that allows you to put a memory card in. so you will need a micro SD card to use the DSTT. the size of card you get determines the amount of games you can backup and play.
512mb = 15 games ish
1gb = 30 games ish
and so on, it also depends on the size of the game. they can be as small as 8mb or as big as 132mb.
hope that helps.
#17
hehe,

The DSTT's etc require you to buy an SD Micro, the size is what limits how many of "your" backed up games you can put on there

1gb ~ 25 ish

Correct me if i am wrong on the game count but obviously it depends on the size of each game

The DSTT/R4 isn't a memory card (you need to buy that seperately e.g 2gb MicroSD from play for £6.50) you can get a DSTT card from dealextreme for £14 delivered (if you're son's birthday isn't until next month it should be delivered in time!) that's the cheapest you'll find it. UK sellers will try and sell the same card for £25ish but less of a wait.
A 2gb card will fit ~30-40 games on it. Homebrew games are games are games produced by consumers which are legal to download and use. This differs to a game bought in shops (e.g. Zelda: Phantom Hourglass) which would be illegal to download and play unless you own the original game. Hope this makes sense. PM me if you want any help!

Ah-ha !! I get it !! God, this is hard isn't it !

Thanks for all your help folks!

Birthday isn't til end of next month so good job I started early I guess.

So I need a DSTT or R4DS type thingy from dealextreme, a MicroSD memory card (think that's what my phone has so I know what that looks like) & I'm away.

Can I download a game if I have a shop bought copy at home? (no idea how to transfer it that's all)
banned#22
you can download what you want, but it is illegal if you dont have the original game ;-);-)
plenty on here will help you, mike beaver helped me set mine up and have never looked back
#23
No you cannot download games!


Downloading copyrighted content is illegal!!!

LOL

:thumbsup:
banned#24
Yep that's perfectly fine to have a backup copy of a game you own. I have a DSTT and I think it's a pretty good card. If you get that card I don't mind helping you set it up. just PM me!
#25
Can anyone point out how the OP can back up a copy of a game that she already owns. :?

if you have any problems pm me im happy for you to send me it (or to buy them for you and stick the games on) then send u it back...just postage cost back to you....or i can run you thru how to do it urself which is best so you can keep doing it yourself....either way drop me a pm if you need to..... if you plan to buy from dealextreme i suggest you do it now tho cos they can take a while if they havent got them in stock etc.....if you order one and its not here for ur sons bday ill sell you mine when and when you get it you can sell me it back for the same...if that makes sense lol....
