Flash Cards with DSi?

Is it possible to use those R4 card things on the DSi? I have no idea about this stuff but I want to get one because I'm cheap. Is there a website explaining them?

R4 and all other older carts (including the Datel Games 'n Music) won't work on DSi. Acekard2i and most other "i" carts will, but Nintendo could easily put out a firmware update to kill them.

If your reason for buying one is that you're "cheap" as you say, just buy your damn games, piracy is killing the industry.

If you want one for homebrew and playing your legitimately bought games, well then good for you. I'm personally waiting and hoping for a SD slot solution, but that could be far off.

Piracy is killing the industry? Do you have any proof of this or is this just an opinion statement?

Opinion. But when I see games like Retro Game Challenge that aren't getting their sequels localized because of poor sales, then I hear people talk about how they played it on their R4, it frankly pisses me off.

Plus as someone who's dabbled in homebrew and game dev, I have a respect for the amount of work that goes into the games we play, and to steal those games is inconscionable to me.

I can understand where you are coming from.

My last comment wasn't intended to come off as snarky, so apologies if it did.
