You are extremely unlikely to get a genuine R4 anywhere, and if you did, they are limited to using a 2GB micro Sd card.

I would get an Acekard 2i. They are for the DSi, but work on the older Ds's.

dealextreme stopped doing all cards



They still do them, you have to order them through the review pages.

[url]www.ndscardshop.co.uk[/url] do them i've got them from there too

I did some digging when I bought one a few months ago and the general concensus was that the acekard is the best. i bought an acekard 2i form r4i.co.uk (part of memory bits).
The first one they sent was a dud, had to send it back ( although they did provide a freepost address and send me an sd card reader to say sorry)
and the second ones spring mechanism is a bit off, often takes a few reloads to get it to recognise the card.
My advice would just be to buy the cheapest one, especially if you're only going to be playing games, as you will not notice any difference.
And if you can avoid spring loaded mechanisms.

Dealextreme do still sell all the cards you need to look here:

one last question.

I can get an R4 for 5.99 or an Acekard for 11.99.

Just go for price R4i better if its a ds lite R4 wont work
