    AFAIK they are all fakes as R4 don't make them anymore. I went for a Supercard DSOne (others may have better suggestions)

    *edit* reading about a bit people seem to rate the Acekard2 and CycloDS in that order of preference.

    Go for something like the AceKard [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    I picked up a couple of these for my neices of nephews and they work a treat. I also got 4gb sandisk microSD cards for them and so far so good.

    My only niggle with the Acekard is that it does feel a bit flimsy but it will spend most of it's time lodged in your DS anyway. The user interface is good but I personally prefer the R4 interface. Compatibility is spot on - not had to the arm7 fix on any games yet.

    For the price it's a bargain mate!

    I've gone for the Acekard 2 now, we'll give that a bash when it turns up.

    I can finally get shot of the DSTT then!!!
