    Just got my CycloDS in the mail today. I've owned one previously, and used an Adata 4GB microSDHC class 6 card with it. Everything ran flawlessly, even problem games like Castlevania: PoR.

    I am considering upgrading to this 8GB Adata card: http://canadacomputers.com/index.php?do=Sh...cid=990.218.987

    Is there any risk to this? Do 8GB card perform as well as 4GB? For some reason I have it in my head that the bigger the card, the more problems that come along. I believe I've read that somewhere, anyway.

    Any advice is appreciated. Also, if anyone wants to suggest a different card from that site, be my guest. I've had nothing but luck from Adata cards in the past, but I am open to suggestions--I want the best one possible!

    From what I remember, that microSD does have problems with the Cyclo.

    What about Transcend 8GB?

    Should be fine. It's only the A-Data 8 GB Class 6 that has problems. But I also share your paranoia about bigger the card = more likely to fail. [​IMG]

    The class 6 is actually a crapshoot. I had to RMA the 1st one i got. My current one works fine though

    I've never had one hitch with my A-Data 8GB Class 6 card that I got from NewEgg. In fact, I bought a second one for my AK2i and, again, not a single problem. It's the first card I'd consider if I ever needed another one (which, with the sweet iPlayer coming out, I just might!)
