    R4DS - cheapest?

    I am after a R4 for my NDS Lite, i was wondering where the cheapest to get one from, if abroad do you get charged a customs charge on arrival?

    Also could someone who knows about these kinda things pm me as i have some questions im not sure are allowed on the forum. :thumbsup:

    Was just about to post about these myself. Hope you don't mind me posting. Was just going to ask how exactly these work?

    Do you link them to your computer and then download roms on to them?

    Well i want to know all this and where best place to get games from hence why i asked for a pm as im not sure if its allowed to be discussed LOL...dont mind you posting saves 2 seperate threads and we both get the answer we need lol

    Amcol, I think the price isn't as important as getting it reliably- so try amazon, got mine in 2 days. For what you're paying v what you'll save, £5-£10 is negligible- especially if you hit customs fees in the process. The R4DS site will tell you everything you need to know, and wiki has a bunch of info too, the best advice is to get one and you'll answer all of your questions in a 5 mins play about with it- it's a hands-on thing for the learning curve.

    Bane, you stick the memory card from the r4 in your pc and download roms onto it. Dead simple as long as you already use bittorrent.

    The best part is you can fit loads of games on to a 1gb card. There will still be games you want to buy though, there's nothing like having the box and cart if you really love videogames. If anything, i've purchased more games since owning my R4DS!

    Right found a website that have stacks and stacks of roms, just need to download the most important bit i need, then start ready for when my R4 comes lol

    Downloading is easy- the max file size for DS at the moment is only 128MB, many games are 32 and 64mb! This means you can download all 1400+ games in a couple of hours, or cherry pick the ones you want and get them in 20mins.

    Agreed - not having to swap carts is a great benefit, especially if you share the DS with your kids and they never remember to pack the game you wanted to play! It could also be a good way of reviewing a game before you decide to buy, although I guess that wouldn't be legal.

    Where is the best place to get 2 cheap 1gb+ SD cards?

    *EDIT* :

    Also, what about this for GBA? dealextreme.com/det…967

    yes thats not bad as you get all the little extras with it,i got my 1g card from someone on here,you can source them cheaper if you buy them seperate i think. rather than deal extreme.

    slot1 devices don't play gba.

    you would want a slot2 only device or an R4 and something like this for gba
