    I just bought 2 of them and will update later to see if C:POR crashes.

    Update: I played C:POR on my R4 with ADATA 512mb for about 20-30min and have not had any crashes yet. I have been to 2 save points. Talked to Wind, fulfilled his 1st objective (by potion and map from priest), wind gave me lizard tail. I thought this is where the crashing was ocurring for others, but I dunno for sure. everything seems great so far.

    R4 using 1.05 firmware english.

    ADATA 512mb passes the rapidly-pressing-start test

    Has anyone tested a 1GB ADATA microsd card? I have one on the way, along with my R4. I assume it should be the same as the 512mb, but it would be nice to have confirmation.

    See, my Transcend 1Gb passes that test too. I got to Wind and did his stuff and all that. When I go into the room with the stone that shows me the ENTRANCE it will either crash, or be ok but crash if I look at it again.

    How many dumps of this are there? Could I possibly have a bad one?

    A-Data’s are very nice cards I paid top dollar for my 2GB. Obviously newegg
    is just blowing these out, more then likely few are buying 512’s now & days.
    Although my A-Data is a mini & on a SC, but never experienced any problem
    with castlevania POR.

    Yeah, sorry for the lack of information. 1.05. Transcend 1GB card. Plays everything FLAWLESSLY except PoR. Locks up at that stone tablet, no problems with rapid start test or other use. I have played a few other games for quite a while (in fact, I played Trauma Center for about an hour last night) and now my battery is almost dead and I can't find my charger! Guess I have to steal my better half's DS when she isn't looking. [​IMG]

    Here is a link to the card:

    Transcend 1GB MicroSD

    So I am wondering if it is more of a picky ROM over picky SD if it's only that 1 game having the problem.
