Compare DSi Flash Cards – What Are Their Special Features That Make Them Different / Better

It looks like Nintendo has become the byword in the gaming world. Wii has taken the world by storm and the DS consoles have become pretty much every gamer’s top toy. And just when you thought things couldn't get any better, Nintendo presented the DSi to the world with all the “Wii-ness”, so to speak, of Wii, and the portability and ease-of-use of DS consoles. However, before Nintendo fans can rejoice, one fact has hit home: they will have to get entirely new R4i DSi flash cards for their consoles, as the original R4 DS flash cards simply won't work with the new devices. The good news is that there are various flash card makers in the world, such as the Acekard team, who came up with one just three weeks after the world heard of the DSi, and Team Cyclops, who came up with the Cyclo range of flash cards which seem to garner good reviews everywhere. On this site we attempt to give you the chance to compare R4i DS / DSi Flash Cards and R4 3DS Cards - what are their special features that make them different / better.

R4 DS Card Features and Compatibility

When one is trying to compare DSI flash cards - what are their special features that make them different / better is a question that would make a great starting point. Pay attention to features such as those related to compatibility, which will be discussed in more detail later. You might also want to look at auto-patching capacities, such as those featured in the Acekard 2i and the CycloDS revolution. You might want to examine their multi-language support and top-notch sound quality, too, as well as more advanced features like a soft reset option, action replay, slow motion and brightness adjustment. You might want a DSi flash card that has the drag and drop function to make handling easier and faster.

Taking a look at compatibility can be tricky because after all, you wouldn't know if yours is compatible to everything unless you try, well, everything. As such, it would be good to take a look at what other gamers have to say about the item you’re eyeing. You can do this by visiting blogs and forums.

Performance of the R4 3DS Cards

Yet another aspect that you should look into in order to compare DSI flash cards – what are their special features that make them different / better, is performance. This, for any gamer, can be a dealmaker or a deal breaker. Performance has to be topnotch for any gaming device as this can affect your gaming experience. Lags and freezing can ruin one's good time, so you need to make sure your DSi flash card won't let you down in that department. You might want to use a flash card that supports Micro SDHC as those have good read-and-write speeds. However, until last year, there weren't a lot of DSi flash cards available that offer that particular function. One of the pioneers in that aspect is the CycloDS revolution. On a related note, you might want to choose a flash card that saves to SD directly, instead of the onboard flash, and one which automatically detects save type. This will surely save you a lot of time.

To compare DSi flash cards – what are their special features that make them different / better, is no rocket science. After all, if you know your way around the internet and you have decent comparison-shopping skills, you can easily find the DSi flash card that is perfect for you in terms of your gaming preferences, level of familiarity with gaming, and budget.

Download R4DS Rom Firmware Update

The R4Pro is part R4 Clone, and a partial AceKard RPG clone (the loader is apparently a copy of the RPG's).  The 'R4Team' R4 may use the original PCB, but they are not the official R4 devs.

The R4 Ultra is part R4 Clone, and part AceKard RPG clone (the loader is apparently a copy of the RPG's). The 'R4i' is a DSi-compatiable clone R4 from the same R4 Ultra devs. It shares the same loader. The 'R4i-II' apparently comes from the same people as the R4i-SDHC, this card has upgrable firmware however while the other does not. AceKard 3DS.

 
 
R4SDHC RTS

R4 3DS SDHC DS Card

Not another R4 Clone. This Nintendo 3DS compatible flash card obviously supports SDHC. May also be known as 'NDSL R4'. This is another R4-III or R4 Upgrade, with a unique loader compared to the others. The 'R4-III', 'R4-III Upgrade', 'R4 III New' or possibly 'R4 SDHC Upgrade' is yet another R4 clone. It supports SDHC. The R4-SDHC / R4i-SDHC is another clone or namesake of the R4, it may be potentially different though. Is it Nintendo 3DS Compatible - Yes. Does it work after firmware updates - Yes. Is it the best...
For Nintendo DS, DSL and DSi - I personally like SuperCard DSTwo better.
