The R4 is a lot more user friendly and has a larger compatability range with games.

With the R4 you simply drag and drop the files into the game folder and you are ready to go :thumbsup:

Yes that's the same as mine. I notice they are out of stock though.

You can get one with a 1gb MicroSD from www.dealextreme.com for a shade over £20. I know they are in Hong Kong but i've used them many times and they are reliable. Delivery is usually 7-10 days by Airmail and there has never been a customs issue. :thumbsup:

I'm having greif with royal mail at the moment, and have to get everything of any value sent special, so I can't really buy from abroad. I never noriced the out of stock before you mentioned it. So the M3 (as it's rrp on that site is £5 more)ain't as good? Just I need one quite sharpish. nipper is going away and don't really want her taking all her games.

The M3 is much the same and works in a very similar way it's just there are a couple of games that they won't play but nothing major.

With the link i gave you i know you can get it sent by priority signed for air mail as well but i'm not sure on the extra cost. Maybe drop the site you listed an e-mail to see when they are getting some more R4's in as they tend to have a quick turnaround on things like that. :thumbsup:

Thanks for all the help mate, repped. You know where to get things that allow you to play movies,mp3's etc. Not bothered about roms as I know asking about them ain't allowed.

No problem.....and the R4 will play everything you throw at it. You just need to put the files in the relevant folder. All the usual torrent sites can provide all the files. ;-)

They are pretty much the same anyway and the M3 can be flashed to become a R4 anyway.

[SIZE=2]Cheers for the help. both of you. Is it worth flashing it? Gonna order the M3 from modelgadget should get it tues if I get the special delivery option. How big are the games in general? Is a 2Gb card big enough?[/SIZE]

Most games are around 50 meg some are only 4 or 5 meg, its just bigger games like Hotel Dusk which are 100 meg or so.
#11
Champion a 2gig card will be adequate then. Thanks again for the help just ordered the m3 with special delivery.

My daughter has an R4 and loves it, I can send you a link to the new R4 firmware too (it adds compatibility with newer games 'simcity' and extra cheat options for lots of games)

If you need games then [url]www.dgemu.com[/url] is the place, up to date with the latest titles, donate $10 and get loads of download credits.

R4 Firmware

New R4 firmware, copy the contents of this file to the memory card. it's not firmware as such, these are system files.

Please note that this firmware might not work on the copied/fake R4 carts as my mate has one and it fails. I know his card is fake as I purchased it in Hong Kong. For originals it is fine.

I just bought the m3 mate cos I'm impatient, cheers for the links thou, will look into them.

Fair enough, well the dgemu site will be useful.

the m3 is great - i have it and it plays all the games, just make sure you download the updates of their site to keep it up to date.

i have 4 SD cards with games on (1 x 2gb, 3 x 1 gb) and its only cost me about £40 which i made back selling 3 of my originals - i just cant see the point in paying for games.

and dont pay for downloads - go to nds-roms.com i use them and its free and relitavely quick.
#17
Is it the same kind of setup as the PSP 1.5 firmware, only via using some kind of adaptor for the cards?

(Haven't got one yet, just enquiring).
#18
you just get a cart which is same size as a normal ds cart. stick in any micro sd card and it works.

To get games on the R4 comes with a micro sd usb reader for pc just drag and drop games or mp3s to it, then insert micro sd back into card and DS and then when it boots you get a list of the games and mp3s etc
