i got my son an R4 for christmas and he loves it, but now he is asking if he can get one to play normal gameboy games. can anyone recommend one to me, it will be used on both his ds lite and his sp. To clarify, its to play gameboy advance and normal gameboy roms.

I don't think the DS plays GB games at all - GBA only.

Either way you need a slot 2 card (goes in the bottom). These can either be similar to the R4 where it takes a DS or Micro SD card - most compatable but can be expensive (e.g. M3 Perfect, £50).

Or you can get a cheap solution e.g. EZ 3-in-1, £10). These only take one game at a time - you flash the internal RAM with GBA games from the R4 memcard. If you want a new game you have to overwrite the current one.

Unfotunatly no, even if you use the gba flashcards they wont work with anything but GBA or DS games
#5
so there is no card that will play normal gameboy games??
#6
Not directly its just through an emulator on the card which I think is simple, just get emulator and games then select them but not sure.

The DS can play them with an emulator as can the GBA

I have 2 of these that allows you to do similar as r4, my boys used to watch cartoons on GBA but it allows you to play back ups of your original carts too.
