    I have this same card and it works great. Haven't played Castlevania PoR with it yet though.

    Thanks for the replies. Any chance you guys could test out Castlevania for me?

    Apparently it works almost perfectly, you'll get the occasional freeze though. Frequent saving should help.

    Castlevania PoR works fine.

    Eh, not quite. I have one of these cards myself and you will find later on in the game it will freeze a lot.

    May I ask why Castelvania is the one game that makes it run freeze?

    The 8GB Sandisk is my primary card and I've never had any issues with any games freezing, Castlevania included.

    It's only a class 4. I'll wait till a class 6 becomes available for that price.

    My Class4 never gave me any problems.
    Needing Class6es is a thing of the past.

    How can you tell a difference between a class 4 and 6 card?
    I can't find any information on the webshops and price sites.

    Is this a class 4 or 6 card?

    All you needed to do was click on one of the links on the page you provided there and they tell you want class the card is [​IMG]

    That one's a Class 4. Honestly for the DS you don't need anything faster than that, I'm sure even a Class 2 would stll give full speed [​IMG]

    I wish people would cut the cr*p about class 2/4/6. It's random access, and even that is something to be taken with a grain of salt.

    People who jumped on the bandwagon with the Adata 4GB Class 6 should do some more research. Really.

    It is one of the cheapest best-performing (in DS slot-1 flashcarts) memory cards available. Why all the hatred?

    I don't mind when people buy and use it for that purpose, heck, even I have an adata 4GB. It's when people start spewing "class 6 is the best, go buy the adata" when they have no idea what class ratings were actually meant for and what they mean. IMO all this "class #" is the best started off with the adata, since it was the first cheapest 4GB microSDHC available that ran well, and apparently that "class 6" stamped on the card deluded a lot of people.

    I have a Transcend 4 Gig Class 6 and have yet to run into any troubles. It was $20 including shipping from Newegg a few months ago. I would have to have an 8 or 12 gig card around the same per gig price point before I'll but another MicroSD.
