View Full Version : Is this all I need to get started?

July 9th, 2006, 00:41

I've had a look around, and I think I've found the stuff I need, though, I may be very wrong, so I figure I'd check first, if I buy the following, will I be sorted for all things DS related:

1. A DS lite
2. Datel Max Media Dock with 1GB Compact Flash (would a 2BG one be better?)
3. Datel Max Media Launcher for Nintendo DS

Thank you :)

Hm...My suggestion...

No Datel products. They all really suck...

Spring for an M3 SD, Passcard 3, and SD card (If you don't have one.)

If you have a large Compact Flash card with you, gfo for an M3 CF.

The place I'm buying MY m3 is gamersection.ca. In the search by keyword box near the bottom, type:

m3sdpc3 for a $105 USD (no idea on shipping) M3 SD with Passcard 3, and

m3cfpc3 for a $101 USD (still no idea on shipping) M3 CF with Passcard 3.

Thanks. I have a SD flashcard already. So I just need to get the first item you posted?

How big is your SD?

Anyway, yes. the M3 SD and Passcard 3 bundle.

Find the search box and of course type in


101 dollars and whatever the shipping is. Are you in America?

I'm in the UK, but the bundle is cheaper than what I said originally, so the money saved can go on the shipping I guess. I've got a spare 512mb card, would that be enough? Or should I get a larger one?

That should be juuust enough for a lot of fun. I've got a 512MB CF card that I put a bunch of stuff on, only taking 100 MB.

Ah, I can't, not enough posts. Right, I'll link you the way you did in your post. Its on the site shop.01media.com/ and you need to search for the product M3 Perfect-SD Slim

two should show up, the one I was looking at is the second one, for Price: 99,00 €

Is that just the same as the thing you said?

Thanks alot :)

The SD slim I think is smaller but more expensive. As long as it's SD, it'll work.

I need to post this thread for fg-54 on S.G.

Could people make things for it so it becomes better? Datel updates the Max Media Player that goes into the ds slot
