they work fine and you need micro sd card for them-whether they are legal or not depends on what content you put on them.
#2
memory card around 4gb should be good for around 50 to 60 games.
toptoy ds on deal extreme seems to get good reports

The flash carts for the DS are a grey area legally. They need a Micro SD card in order to play any content from them. Because they can be used for both owned games and homebrew, they do have a legal purpose. However you can also copy games which you don't own (obviously this is piracy) and this is where the legality wavers.

They work very well, in case you're wondering!

what do i put into my ds, the sd card or this r4 thingy?

(ps thanks guys!


also, is it right they are only around £12?

is this what i would need? http://www.model-gadget.com/shop/product_info.php?cPath=93_86_92&products_id=734&osCsid=4c1f5e6b71b8723167b9efb2aa65f4ac

The micro sd card fits into the R4 card then the R4 fits into the DS.

The Saints thread will help you set it up..

R4 v2 (old version)- can only accept micro sd cards up to 2gb
R4 shdc (new version) - can accept the more expensive and more importantly larger micro sdhc cards 4gb,8gb etc.

they are cheaper here, the site you mentioned get them from the same places everyone on here gets them from, be careful with some of the UK sites that sell these as they are drop shipping,
Hope this helps



whats ''drop shipping' and where is the best place to buy from? is there any chance in future they will be unable to be used? or will they keep on working all the time?

also - i cant find the right memory card on this site

for bulk downloading use newsbin pro and giganews.
emule limewire or azureus all these progs will do the job though.

I've personally been waiting since December 15th(roughly) for an R4DS from Dealextreme (SDHC version). It's on it's way now(I think) - they were out of stock. In-stock items take about 10 days to get to you from what I hear.

The R4DS is legal - downloading and then putting pirated games onto them is not legal.

Just be mindful of what your doing;-)

A good place for ds 'games' is frozen-roms(look for the odd bit of German text - that's the one).

Google it up - I won't add a link incase it gets me in trouble.

Let's just say they have pretty much everything - jap/euro/US, upto date and archived etc etc.
#29
seem to got the 'just' of it now - thanks to you guys, really appreciate all your help - thanks once again!

(ps - downloaded winrar - only seems to be free for 40 days tho - will have to look into that!)

I've never had to upgrade winrar - it just keeps on giving :-D

When you have a folder downloaded, double click it(usually on your desktop) then right-click and 'extract all'.

Just beware that some may be confusing - if a folder has multiple files inside it extract the 1st or largest one. It should build the rom for you nicely. Then just drag and drop the .nds file (rom) onto the root of your R4DS card(or equivalent obvo)

You'll get the hang of it after a while.
#31
I use WinRAR with the context functions- i.e right click on a RAR file and choose an option from the list. Always best to extract to a folder of the same name. Better still, there's no message about it being unregistered!

got this all done now all thanks to you guys, cant believe how fantastic it is - saves a fortune on games, some ive tried im glad i havent bought - they were a bit of a let down, would never buy a ds game again! thank you all so very much, ive repped you all!!!
