    Get the Acekard 2i,its one of the best supported cards on the market

    Glad this was brought up! Sinnos ive got an old R4 card with lots of games But if we decide to purchase the new 3ds i know i would need a new type of R4 card - but a) which one and b) would any of the old roms ive got with the old R4 card work on the 3ds

    I am open to correction linny, but i don't think the 3ds is compatible with any card yet. with regards to the best card to get, I have to agree with Sinno, the acecard 2i is a cracking card

    Linny a number of cards are now compatible with the 3ds,it is only the updates for the 3ds that will mess up compatibility,any of the roms will work on the Acekard it is your saves that will have to be changed,there is a online convertor,i will find it for you if you want

    thanks sinno, i think i will go for the Acekard 2i as u seem to no what u are on about, ''not like myself''
    but i have had a look on some internet sites that sell them,
    the price differs quite abit, dont suppose you no what kind of price i should be paying.

    thanks, Wont be till around August time that we get the 3ds so plenty of time to decide if my son does want the 3ds and if he does want to get rid of the ds he has. By then im sure there will be other updates etc and hopefully by then the price will have gone down :) But at least i now know that those roms will work and can look into getting one of the newer R4 card thats compatible between now and then!

    Caroline279,i use this place and never had a problem with there stuff
    [ Only registered users can see the bbcode. Click Here To Register... ]
    And i get my micro sd cards here
    [ Only registered users can see the bbcode. Click Here To Register... ]
    I have always got good service from both

    Linny,hold onto the ds regardless,they are usualy needed to perform the upgrade to the card,it will save you looking for one when you need it updated,i had to have one when the dsi was updated

    I'll pm you the link the as I can't post them till I have made 15 posts....

    download then extract ysmenu

    dont delete your old firmware

    Then drag and drop everything thats in the ysmenu folder to the sd card

    boot your card up normally and look for ysmenu.nds and boot it like you would do a game

    a new menu will load and you'll be able to play the newer games until you buy an alternative card

    what R4 card do i need for my DSI XL

    Guys try looking at the following Link.
    "R4i-SDHC" Put the rest in front also at the end with the dots, or maybe google it.

    I think W's then COM
    Linny Most old games will be usable on dsi xl and other dsi consoles,
    you will have to load new games only, without sav files,
    then run each R4 card after loading on dsi to install its own sav files individually.
    You cannot copy Sav files onto dsi ranges they will not work.


    Sorry Guys they won't allow me to post the Link.

    Its in the rules i need 15 posts first.
