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.

Get an R4 cartridge..stick a Micro SD card in (any size) stick the .nds files contained on the disk onto the memory card via drag and drop...DONE

'Free' games downloaded from net


What can go wrong....


er...NOTHING

Doesnt invalidate warranty or anything..its the same as the game cartridges

you need to buy a dstt or m3 card or such like also u need a sd card 2gb or higher , and then you need to download the firmware or kernel for relavant card and bobs your uncle

i have an r4 and anything higher than a 2gb sd card and it throws a wobbley
but you can still get 30+ games on 2gb cards

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:

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

modchip-store.co.uk/

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