    Search for R4DS, it is the most popular type. Some of the cheap ones are cheap and can brake easily

    Incorrect, I have sent loads of cards back to dealextreme. They don't even need it back before they send the new one.

And thanks for the info on us being able to post info on how to set up the dstt didnt realise it was ok now:thumbsup:



    That's strange. I have never had any problems when returning items. Do you still have them, or did you return them and they refused to refund/replace?

    Re: Info on DSTT, we are not allowed to talk about illegal activities on them. My thread contains no info about this, and I report any talk about this that appears.

    Thanks.

    what is better, an edge card or a R4DS card? I have no idea which one to buy......

    In my opinion, the Edge card is the best budget card you can currently buy. It is based on the CycloDS but without the advanced features. As a result, it tends to get updated very frequently and has an excellent user interface. In addition, the build quality is excellent.

    PLEEEEse can someone help me out with a breakdown of the +'s and -'s of the 3/4 main kinds of 'memory' cards for the DS Lite ( including an idiots guide to everything i will need to get the card up and operational). i was led to believe that an R4 card is the one. But now Edge, Acekard, and D??? are worth considering, which all seem to have pro's and con's, but as we now have 3 DSL's floating round we would like to know how best to share our games - rep given for sound :-Dhelp

    I understand your confusion! There are a whole range of cards at different price points which are now available. I would categorise them into 3: Budget; mid-range and premium.

    At the premium end, you have the CycloDS Evolution and the Supercard DS One. These come with a wider range of features than most people would use and development teams who issue regular updates to remove glitches and ensure the most modern games will work with the cards. As an example of the features: The CycloDS card will play GBA games without needing a 3rd party loader. It has real-time saves so you can effectively save mid way through difficult parts of a game. It has an in-built text reader so you can have game instructions or game walk-throughs. The CycloDS tends to cost around £40, the SuperCard DS One can be had for around £22.

    In the mid-range, you have the M3 Real and the Edge. These cards lack the features of the premium cards but still have regular updates and strong support from their development teams. They are a good choice if all you want to do is play DS games or use the Moonshell media player. Expect to pay around £10 - £20 for mid-range cards.

    At the budget end you have the DSTT (Top-Toy) together with dozens of other less well known cards. The Top-Toy has a good reputation for updates but, in my experience, has a lower build quality than the mid-range cards. They will provide a similar experience to the mid-range cards and can be a good choice when money is tight. These can be purchased from around £5.

    Make your choice of card and match it to a MicroSD memory card. Search on pricerunner or google shopping to get the best deals. Otherwise, look at 7-day-shop; picstop or Amazon. Each 1Gb of memory will hold up to 25 games.

    In terms of choice, I would recommend that you consider only 4 cards: Super premium = CycloDS; premium = Supercard DS One; mid-range = Edge; budget = DSTT

    Sweeet!

    Just had a look around their site, some really cheap gear on there. Are they fairly reliable?

    They state 14 days for delivery to the UK - is that realistic or are they usually quicker/slower?

    No problems with Deal Extreme, I ordered 4 TTDS cards on 22nd December and they were delivered on 30th December. All depends on stock levels and item ordered.

    R4 from Amazon, far easier than buying from Dealxtreme and easier to return if they are faulty ;-)

    I've bought about 20, only had 1 go wrong, and the advice they give if you have problems is brilliant.

    i own m3 tstt and r4 v 3 - they're all the same really! - but the r4v3 can show more games @ once and is quicker to navigate.
    If you are 'seriously' interested in homebrew and development (not just commercial NDS Titles) - try the m3 real - seems to have more intricate options within the main menu.
