    Sorry if this is in the wrong place, but I could find no better forum for it...

    I'm buying a new Acekard and also looking for the best SDHC card I can get to go with it. I've a 4GB microSDHC Kingston and have had problems with computer compatibility with it but no NDS problems as far as I could tell. But since I'm looking to buy a new one, might as well get the best I can afford, eh?

    What brand/size microSDHC would work best with an AK2i? I'm not willing to pay anymore than ~$50 for one. I have about 2gb worth of games, but I'm always adding to my library so capacity is a big deal for me. Any links to a reputable seller would be great!

    Thank you for your response!

    Is there any major difference between the speed classes that I should know about? (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Secure_Digital#Speed_Class_Rating)

    As stated multiple times, speed class doesn't really matter as that only determines the possible write speed which is only useful to copying over games; its the read speed that matter. Usually any nice brand (not generic) MicroSDHC will have sufficient read speeds to load games.

    As you live in the states, I would recommend looking at NewEgg.com.

    Class 6 8GB MicroSD card for $20.99 + $2.99 shipping
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...1-351-_-Product

    Class 6 8GB MicroSD card w/ microSD card reader for $22.99 + Free Shipping
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...8-460-_-Product

    Better card then SimplyMods at lower prices and shipping costs. Can't go wrong there.

    Recommendation: I have had very good luck with Transcend. AData seems to be good as well.

    I know this is true, but buying a name brand Class 6 card will almost guarantee good/great read speeds. I have heard many Class 4 cards having issues with the Castlevania games. With Class 6 cards going for the same price (or a dollar or two higher then) Class 4 cards, why take the chance?

    Oh I didn't want to make it sound like "Get a class 2 card, everything will be great". If you have the chance to get a good Class 6 card without breaking the bank, go for it.
