OK I need some help for what to buy to run homebrew, my code, etc. on my [2004] DS Original. Now I did the "Pictochat Test" and I have Version One according to it. I've want to get a Super Card SD flash cart. Is it worth it? Please recommend other/better flash carts that I can put an SD card into for it's memory (because you know this stuff much better than me.

Now I don't know what to get for the DS slot to bypass filters and run from the Super Card SD/other flash cart. I mean like PassMe, Passcard, Passkey, NoPass, etc. Can you give me some cheap suggestions that preferably support Sleep Mode?

And if I get the Super Card SD. What file extensions will I be able to run using it? Like .nds or whatever.

EDIT: One more thing. :p What is a good, reliable, CLEAN, and parent-friendly site that I can buy the Super Card SD/other flash cart and whatever you suggest on?

Someone please help me!

I've heard SD cards aren't a good choice, they aren't very compatible with homebrew. I've heard CF is better, is that true?

I'm going to use a NoPass device. Which one is the best and what is the best flash cart for use with it? I'm leaning towards an M3 or a Supercard because of the extra RAM. I also want something that's super compatible with all/almost all homebrew.

The SC SD is compatible with the vast majority of homebrew software. You use .sc.nds files. Some .nds files also works.

If you want the absolute best homebrew compatibility, get a GBAMP CF (but it doesn't have extra RAM).
