    A mate got a cyclo the other day- worked fine and made me want to lose my R4, but, my R4 is built like a tank- just like a DS game, but his cyclo was light as hell and seemed REALLY flimsy. I was even too scared to put the miro sd in it and made him do it, is this the norm?

    *EDIT*
    Any chance of fitting the innards of a cyclo/acekard2 into an R4 case?

    Yep my cyclo is extremely light and a bit flimsy, nothign strange there and much better than the R4 imo. If anyone still wants a good link to buy a cyclo give me a pm.

    Just a couple of quick, and perhaps silly questions. I have recently got a DS lite and was wondering if anyone could let me know what DSTT and R4 actually are. I assume they are devices for storing and playing downloaded DS games?

    also how do they work i.e. is modification needed on the DS hardware or firmware?

    No modification to the DS is needed. The R4 etc is a card that is the same size as a normal DS game. You put the firmware on a micro SD card, as well as the games you want to play, insert this into in the R4 and then that into the DS and then away you go. With a 2GB card you can get around 40 games on there, maybe more, maybe less as the games are different sizes (8mb, 16mb, 32mb, 64mb, 128mb and 256mb)

    With the masses of second hand NDS's in the shops right now I'm gonna get one for my lad, been looking at the variety of cards out there and just need a quick response on which one is regarded the best and easiest to use by a 5 year old once it has games on.

    Also having never used Dealextreme before, they seems to be the cheapest, is it all good stock on there or is there the chance of fake cards.

    Cheers

    All R4's are clones on there (I think they stopped selling "genuine" 2GB R4's). I myself would never buy a clone again after it bricked my nephews DS, but many others have had no problems at all with them. Id go for the Acekard myself, you might as well go for the Acekardi as they'll work on the DSi too if you ever get one in the future. Many people swear by the TTDS too, I myself have had a few dead ones so stopped getting those.

    Expect a couple of weeks delivery time at least with DX though, maybe longer as they're under a DDoS attack at the moment and website keeps going down and back up again.

    Cheers, was looking at the AceKard on a uK site earlier, may get one from there, will pay a little more, but at least it stands a good chance of being genuine, and being delivered quickly.

    I got my last AceKard2 from focal price, could be a cheaper option for you.
    Also found play.com best for 8gb microSD (at 10.70)

    Just ordered an AceKard 2i from Aria, was 20 which will do me, and a 4GB Micro SDHC for 3.95.

    Now all I need is a NDS, but I thought I'd jump on the card as they had 10 on there for a 10 discount off of their usual price on that site.
