    Because I have a DS Lite and I want to trade it in for a DSi. But I'm not sure if it can play ROMs (I got an R4 Revolution For DS and it's original, not an R4 III or some sort). Because I'm seeing multiple sites saying that it can't play ROMs and it's getting me confusing! Please help me :(.

    Currently the only flash cart that suports dsI is acekard 2.0 if i remember the name correctly.Its not really worth risking it yet unless you are damn certain on getting a new one

    Well can the SD card play ROMs?

    EZ-Flash Vi also supports DSi.

    Also, no, the SD Card cannot play ROMs. :(

    the R4 clones do not work on the DSi. No DS flashcart does, the physical hardware in the DSi flashcarts is slightly different to the DS counterpart.

    Actually there's a team in Japan that had already cracked it prior to the American release. Which means, you can successfully load the games onto the memory cards instead, like a PSP.

    The TTDS and DSTT are the same. Kamage, that's a different subject.

    I was merely stating out the possibility that it can play ROMS without using a flashcart... So it's still relevant :)

    Is it because the latest firmware for the R4 is too old for the DSi?

    no it is because the hardware is different. Firmware or not, DS flashcarts will never work in the DSi

    Liar. It's a Slot-2 cart. DSi's don't have a GBA slot. I'm not a retard okay.

    Well which is better, R4 or DSTT because someone said that DSTT works on the DSi.

    NOTE!!: This is not a double post!!

    No it's not. There was a DSTTi yes.

    cyclods is slot 1 as far as I know.

    The CycloDS Evolution is definitely slot 1. I say this owning one. I think the same team made a slot 2 device before making the CDSE, that may be confusing the matter. Whether or not it works on the DSi however, I don't know.
