The M3 DS Simply is the M3 Team's first slot-1 flashcard. It features simple drag and drop ROM functionality but lacks some of the features of the M3 DS Real. It is identical to the R4 DS flashcart, except for the branding, and the firmware compatibility (their firmware is identical, but not exchangeable)
