    I bought a 8 gb kingston micro sdhc card recently.at first i copied all the files from my older card to this new card.all the files showed up in my ds.but when i copied another 2 games to the card the r4 sdhc didn't recognize the internal game name and didn't show the cheats.same problem in ysmenu.

    then i copied all files to my pc from this new card,formatted it,copied back all the files and then the card recognize all the games.

    whenever i copy a file the card does not recognize it but if i copy all the files right after formatting the card in one time ,it recognizes them

    please help me as i can't format the card every time i copy a new game.it's very time consuming because i don't have usb 2.0.my usb is 1.1

    Card corruption is a well known fault with the R4 SDHC. Use a 4gb SDHC card instead of an 8 and you'll probably find that your problem goes away.

    R4 SDHC 8 gig card works if you gonna add more games copy your old game file in your computer and put it in you harddrive then Download SDFormatter then format your micro sd the computer formatter doesn't work. and if your gonna buy a R4 SDHC buy 4 gig it only works that way and 8 gig works but only 4 gig capacity not 5 gig it won't work....that way.... I hope It help you guys....

    R4SDHC works fine with also 8 GB

    Whatever might happen above 4 GB is that it will slow down, the workaround for that issue is making an extra directory (and limit the files in it to 4 GB)
