Was thinking of buy a ds and also a card so I can play downloaded games. However I am not sure about which card to purchase. The only one I have really heard of is R4. Is this the best or are there better ones out there and what sort of prices are they??

Thanks

R4, M3 or TTDS.

I got R4DS - I've had no probs and love it, watch out whichever one you get isn't a fake though.

Pretty much the only real difference is the R4 cannot handle bigger memory cards than 2GB.....

However, 2GB han hold an awful lot of game! But the R4 is no longer made, so support may get thin on the ground at some stage. I have the M3 simply real, which I can recommend, but have no knowledge of the other one, apart from some reference to faulty cards.

Thats from someone asking advice on how much to sell their nintendo for!

Yes, but I thought maybe, the OP could buy that one :)

i've had quite a few cards now, R4DS, TTDS, Cyclo, EZ, Edge DS, Fire Link, as i tend to get them for family and friends The best i have had is my cyclo - costs loads more than the others but its worth it. Having said that though, the new iTouch card from dealextreme is great, very stable and the firmware gets updated quite regular plus its around £11 delivered! ive just had 3 delivered last week and they have been great. The firmware is not perfect yet but it is quicker than TTDS and EZ, plus so far its 100% compatible with all games i have tried!

Does the M3 handle bigger memory cards than 2GB? how about SDHC cards?

Yep, I have an 8GB in one of mine! Lots of music and other stuff as well as games :)

Did you mean they work with SDHC cards too?

To be 8GB, it would have to be SDHC.

Thanks for the info guys. Do you have to install anything for the M3 or is it just plug in and play?? Any links from where to buy?... :roll:

Not install, but you do need to copy the software that runs it onto your memory card before you can copy your games to get it to run.

OK, any links to a reputable site which sell the real deal? ie. no fakes. :)

Since when did we support piracy? (Doesn't seem like homebrew to me?)

I can find the following:-

http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.3315

http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.2393

http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.2981

http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.2069

Might be others as well

Play.com were doing micro ds card quite cheap so it may be worth comparing that to buying a combo deal :)

EDIT 1GB cards are £4.99 & 2GB are £5.99
