    Hey guys [​IMG] I've read that there is no limit to the size of sd cards for the acekard 2...But is this actually true in practise? Would it work with say a 16 or 32gb card as I'm looking to buy 1 so I can put loads of stuff on my DS. Thanks!

    16 gb micro sdhc cards are quite rare and very pricey... But, I'm sure if you have one and it is a reliable brand it would work absolutely fine.

    The only limit is that on the actual format itself of SDHC, which is 32GB. The hardware specification physically won't allow for larger cards to exist, and be understood by any existing hardware as they are configured today.

    aphirst beat me to it... 32gb is the largest card possible.

    although, a long list of roms may take a while to load, i would imagine

    Normatt and Smiths generally recommend that you categorise your ROMs into several folders (if you think that you have enough ROMs to pose a slowness problem, that is).

    Oh boy, I can't wait to load up my several copies of Elf Bowling 1&2.

    Yeah, a 32GB MicroSD is the largest, which would probably handle most of the existing ROMS trimmed (and a large chunk untrimmed), which includes (J), (E), (U), (K), and any other languages.

    The slow scrolling times, does this include other files like music? I might already know the answer, but I haven't gone past 100 files to really know for sure.

    Do yourselves a favor and format with the much mentioned, highly recommended Panasonic formatter. It will very noticeably speed up your SD card.
