The R4 and similar are basically a storage device for illegal ds roms. they take micro sd cards and you can fit dozens of games on a single card. roms are available from many sites, though if you use bit torrent, then that is your best bet for finding the games you want. Most cards can be cheaply purchased from dealextreme.

is this the one you are talking about?
http://www.amazon.co.uk/Nintendo-Revolution-Version-2GB-Memory/dp/B0012ZOG2K/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1219517902&sr=8-1
Also half way down the page it says buy this with 2gb sd card - do i need that as well?
Is that all i would need or something else?
Is there any shops you can go and buy this from? Its just i would like it for my holiday next monday.

Thanks,

Use piratebay.org . It's a resource tool for ummmmm, pirates, really. Oh yes . make sure that you have uptodate antivirus software running if you are even contemplating downloading any murky files. You can get a good free one by searching for AVG free. Oh yes, enjoy your holiday and if i can be of further service......

So do you plug that ornage thing into the ds? Where do you put the card?
And when i down load the games so i have to anything else or just put the folder onto the card?

Nah thats like a small usb drive that the micro SD card into then into your computer but if you;ve got a card reader you can use the supplied sd adator and just use that. The micro sd card then goes in the white dstt card and then just in the DS like anormal game

If you follow the saints guide its really easy and you card will be set up to put the games on in about five minutes

You could try in the fs/ft board as people do sometimes have them on ther otherwise it will have to be amazon marketplace but still no guarantees of getting it in time!
