M3 DS Real the best?
I'm pretty new to this but I am very active in the PSP scene so this should help a little.
I tried looking up the differences in all these various flash cards and don't understand most of it. What I am looking for is a flash card that plays just about everything, homebrew, backups, nds, gba, all that good stuff. So far the M3 DS Real seems to be the best out there, but does anyone have any other suggestions? My friends are using the R4 and they say it works great, but I guess it is no longer supported?
Are there any features that the M3 DS Real lacks that other flash cards support? Also I saw the memory pack and rumble pack, are these must-have items or just nice to have? What would be a fair price for the M3 DS Real? Thanks in advance
To be able to play GBA games you must have the extended memory GBA cart:
I would recommend the following (in order of best to worst in my opinion):
M3 GBA Expansion pack
M3 Real + GBA Expansion pack
Also having previosly owned an M3 DS Real I greatly loved the features and the Sakura firmware. When I had my M3 DS Real the only Sakura firmware that I could use was the M3 iSakuReal. The Sakura firmware has been well designed and is better than MoonShell 2 (although they are quite similar).
I have however recently purchased an AceKard 2i and have found it quite useful and is frequently updated by the AKAIO team. If you don't plan on buying a DSi or are worried about Nintendo blocking use of the card on the DSi there is also the AceKard 2.1 which has all the same features except DSi support and uses the same kernel.
So to play GBA and NDS games:
AceKard 2i + EzFlash 3-in-1 = $37.10 US
AceKard 2.1 + EzFlash 3-in-1 = $29.64 US
M3 Real with GBA Expansion = $42.85 US
Those prices are according to DealExtreme. Also if you do purchase a M3 Real make sure you refer to http://m3adapter.com/News_Events.htm#081024 to ensure you don't purchase a fake.
