    Struggling to understand - what do i need...... (DS/R4 help)

    Hello all, i really can't understand what i need to buy for my son's DS, he wants one of those R4 cards, is that all i need to buy and where is the best place to buy one from? Once i have purchased one, how do i download the games onto the card? Sorry for being dumb but i just can't get this in my head.

    Thanks in advance for your help

    If you get an R4 you will also need a Micro SD Card....think a 2gb is £4.99 @ Play.com at moment but you would have to check

    Basically the R4 comes with Software disk, cartridge and USB Stick....the cartridge and USB stick both have space in for the Micro SD...

    So .... stick software disk in PC.....then stick USB (With Micro SD in) into PC....install the relevant files.....

    then stick the .nds (game) files on.....

    then pop the Micro SD out and stick it in the cartridge...turn the DS on...done!!!


    Its RIDICULOUSLY easy...so you will find it a doddle!

    You need a card and a microSD card
    The games are available from the dodgier places on the internet that you can't really discuss on here.

    So torrent sites and newsgroups

    I just ordered the cheaper but arguably better version from Dealextreme - £10. or $19.97ish. Takes a while to come as it's an American site but if you're willing to wait up to a couple of weeks then well worth it. These cards are not illegal..... it's what you do with them that is. I'm just gonna look at my one. :whistling:

    All info posted on [url]www.youtube.com[/url] for both cards. It will let you understand how they work a bit better. Just do a search. There are tonnes of videos on there.

    The card I ordered is called the Toptoy card or DSTT OR TTDS card.

    All the best. :0)

    Dealextreme is in Hong Kong not the U.S........but it's an excellent place to buy from.

    bought mine from here with the sd card all in for £30, i know its dearer than some of the others but the R4 is meant to be the best out there.

    You are better off with the TTDS over the R4.......it's the same but can take more memory.

    surely the R4 is only limited by the SD Card though?

    do you know how long delivery is?

    Don't buy R4. It's seriously out of date now and hasn't had any updates for quite a while now, which means it has trouble lots of the newer roms. Also there is a multitude of fake R4's circulating about including some SDHC (bigger mem card) ones which have been known to damage DS's. R4 was great a year a go but it's all but discontinued now even though it's name is still very popular.

    I would advise you to get a DSTT+2GB Kingston mem card package from DX, it cost around £15.00 delivered all in all.
