    Downloading games into the ds lite console

    My son got a ds lite for Christmas and I want to download games for him I read around the internet about the r4ds cards but i would appreciate it if someone would please tell me what I need to do this and the steps that are needed to be done to be able to download games off the internet. I've been investigating this myself on various websites and am still slightly confused about the whole process.

    As far as I know the R4 cards are just like game cartridges however they have a slot to fit a micro SD card into. You can load games onto the SD card which will then show up on a menu when you power up the DS. I will be able to tell you more next week as the other half has just bought one

    As for downloads I'm not entirely sure where the best place to download them is. If you can get an invite for Bitgamer they have quite a few NTSC torrents you can download, but not so many PAL (Europe) games.
    In the unlikely event I have managed to help you out be sure to say thank you!

    R4ds

    Well the R4DS sell really cheap BUT If you just recently purchase the DS the R4 will most likely won't work with it to it due to nitendo updates. This happen to me with my DS lite I bought r4 did everrything right couldn't work on my DS lite but it Worked older DS lites. So this is the best site to get them they ship free usually takes 2 weeks. r4ds-ds.com. You will also need a Mini SD card You can buy it with the r4 on the same site which I suggest. There many tutorials on Youtube showing you how to install the firmware. And you can't get games which are nown as ROMs in many sites I prefer romulation.net if you create an free account there you get unlimited downloads but there many other sites on the Net and once you set all that up It should work on Ds and SOME ds lites but It most likely won't work for your New DS. Hope I could help feel free to send me a pm if you have any more questions

    Thanks for the info. I bought the ds lite on ebay. I went with ds lite because you can use gameboy games in as well and my son has lots of them. So does this mean that the r4 card will work on this ds lite. I also posted another post about the acekard2 because I read another post about this card will this work better than the r4. So you can download nts as well as pal downloads to work because there are alot of torrent files that have both to download. I also have a sd mini slot right in front of my computer so is it just as simple as downloading these games into the sd card with the exception of downloading some programs to work with it.

    I don't know how much the R4 gets updated, but the M3DS Real and the Acekard 2 have good support with regular updates released to get the newer games working. I would say both of them are $25 or less (US funds). And to answer your other question, LOOK HERE.

    R4ds

    So I assume the DS is used? If it is and the r4 will most likely work at the site i said before its about 18 dollars for and r4 with 2gb Mini sd card I ordered about 3 r4s from them there authentic and trusted. And theres no need download games from torrents just go on rom sites like the one I said before and the hundreds of others just google ds roms. Its a great value. It also includes and usb mini sd card reader and a case for the r4

    acekards tend to be more expensive than r4s and r4s are more well known

    i recently bought the R4i-sdhc V1.4 compatiable from dealextreme, these work in DSi, DSL and DS, it also works with the recent nintendo update, think it was about $8 us. Im in uk and it took about 2 wks to arrive as it ships from HK i think, bought about 15 of these for friends and family...
