    So I've been looking for some microSD cards, and I bought a 3 of em and, unluckily, got all taiwan. So my question is: Will games in the future also crash?

    I'd assume the reason Castlevania crashes is because its an extreme load for the SD card to transfer to the DS. i'd also assume that the freezing means its using more of the NDS's capabilities than most games use. if thats the case, wouldnt games that use even more of the DS's capabilities be released soon? and if thats the case, wouldnt that mean it will be absolutely necessary to have a Japan model in the near future?

    ---

    edit: as you can see, i'm basing it on a lot of assumptions [​IMG] if something in my train of thought here is wrong, i guess my whole argument goes kablooie.

    Hmm...An assumption is all that can be made really, since we don't know what the future holds. Although, this person might have the answer we're looking for.

    The good news is, even if that scenario plays out, transflash memory is becoming cheaper and cheaper. If it was still $40 for 256 MB, then I'd be a bit more worried. With 1GB being as low as $10, however ... I can afford to re-order if I have to.

    My take on it is that any properly programmed game will not crash or lock up, period. If it pushes the system to it's limits maybe it will slow down, but not crash. In other words, it's the fault of the game, not the hardware. Not that that helps if you don't have a fast card.

    You could try and get Japanese replacements for your microSD cards. Several people have reported getting Kingston to take the Taiwanese cards back and give them Japanese ones, but success seems to depend on getting a friendly service agent when you call them.

    You could also just buy a Toshiba SD-C01G card, those are the same as the Japanese Kingstons.
