yeah i have an R4 too, and i havent found any problems with it - make sure you have a good microSD card too - i think some microSD cards have problems, but not mine anyways.

movies have to be in .dpg format - go look for batchdpg to convert your avi's and stuff to .dpg to be able to play it on a DS. the R4 can play many song types, so i dont think that's a problem.

you can find roms for the r4 on www.simplynds.com, isohunt, and some others (google)

If you buy the r4, you have to buy the SD storage device separately, 'cuz the R4 is basically an adapter that's useless w/o a micro sd.

its basically an adapter that is exactly the same size as a nds cartridge which uses a memory card. Usually the card is 1gig+ haven't seen a 512 one yet.

With the r4 system you can watch movies in a special format only. I can't seem to remember the format but it can watch any other format except that. It can also act as a mp3 player so you can put your favourite music and listen to it.

Most games are around 80mb, unless you have alot of games you want to play. 1gig-2gig is probably the best. You can only buy it online but there are some stores that sell it but that is very rare.

Good thing is that you don't need to buy the games and you can still play against people with wifi with it.

Can't think of any cons atm :D

The R4 card really is a revolution for the DS.

I have the 2G card and can fit about 50 games on it? Why pay like 30 quid for a game man?!

This is a well good site for games download:

Buy online, ds roms can be found here http://nds.hkorz.com/

R4 is good cuz micro mem cards are dirty cheap and unlike psp games, each NDS game is about 64 mb ave and 248 max. a 2 gig flash would give u 50+ games.

R4 is 50 bucks mem card is 10, thats the price of 2 games...

and no far no Cons, except sometimes it crashes, no harm to DS, plus what do u expect from a homebrew anyway.

yea, you basically buy them online, but you can also buy them in Hong Kong..:'D there are also very few stores that actually sell them in other places.

some stores in vancouver got banned for selling R4..
so when you buy them.. you have to go to some store.. and ask for it.. they wont put it on display..

ah, be careful if you buy from china or something, cuz then you might get a fake one. there are fakes flying around too....

a con is that some of the r4's have a spring problem so that you can't load the microSD card, but that's fixed with tape.
