    I was reading a post at GBAtemp that states that Nintendo can do firmware updates on the DSi which may render the DSi unable to read flash carts. The post also states that Nintendo may or may not have the ability to detect flash carts in the DSi. Not trying to discourage anyone from buying, just beware of the all to familar firmware update.

    i had the M3 Perfect for my DS phat. It was cool but I could never get the DS roms to load on it. It was also very bulky and cheaply made. Required a Passme2 and real DS game and the M3 GBA slot card just to boot into "DS mode"

    The Acekard2i works with the DSi beautifully and is backwards compatible with the DS Lite and the DS phat. When using the Acekard2i on older DS systems (DS lite or older) the Acekard2i allows you to load GBA games straight from the gba slot. This feature is available on the DSi even though there isn't a GBA slot. For this reason, I'm waiting for a GBA emulator to come out for the DSi so i can put that on my Acekard and enjoy GBA games along w/ my DS games, SNES games, Sega Genesis games, and NES games on my DSi!

    The AceKard 2i is best run with AKAIO firmware on it rather than the official. That and the latest loaders will boot most of the roms other carts can't. Still can't beat a Cylco IMHO though if you're willing to pay for one

    Before I buy this I would like to know this.
    1. I do not have to do any mods to my dslite for this to work?
    2. Is there software that I need to install on my computer to use and copy files?
    3. Is it pretty simple use? Just copy game to the card?
    4. What is the most difficult part?

    Thanks in advance. Trying the get one for my son's birthday on aug 8th... So I am under the gun to order...

    Regards,

    2009 Firmware for DS Lite Acekard version 6?

    Is anyone aware of whether newer DS Lites (those manufactured in early2009) have any problems with the Acekard 2i? Specifically, do the newer DS Lites still operate with version 5 firmware and if they run version 6 firmware, are the Acekard 2i updates from October compatible for use on version 6 firmware?
