Nintendo DS R4 Card, What's it all about?

My daughters have been given a disc containing a selection of games for their DS games console. Apparently it needs a card and software to run these games. Can any body advise me what it's all about and what can go wrong?

Thanks in advance.

Apart from the legal issues of course

You should, of course, be aware that there's a very good chance that the games on the disc are pirated. So one thing that can go wrong is that you can be arrested and face a fairly large fine or worse. :whistling:

Is this the sort of card that I need, or can anybody recommend something?

I can vouch for the R4...no experience of the others

I've got an R4 card and it's great. I got mine off Amazon Marketplace but I gather that you have to be careful because there are some duds being sold. If you're not fussed about the legal side of it I'd recommend it.

Dont get an R4, you can only get upto 2gb mem cards for them.

Get an M3 Real (exactly the same), but you can use High Capacity cards with them. I have an 8gb card in mine :)

Got it from here

http://www.modchip-store.co.uk/

Get the M3 card from there, but not the mem cards (too dear)
