    Hi..
    I have NDS lite and TTDS... I was using before SD card of 1GB, but i could keep only few games on it at once so i bought new SD card with capacity of 8GB, and copy pasted all files from old SD card to new one with additional games..
    Stuff is that games i added load really, really slow, like few minutes :\...
    SD card have around 1 GB free left...
    So what i should do to increase the loading speed? Should i maybe change system files since capacity of SD card was changed?
    Thx in advance [​IMG]

    Do you have the latest infolib.dat in your TTMenu folder ?

    infolib.dat is a speedup of rom loading times for ttds and ysmenu

    But only if the gameID and boot code loading time is in there

    You can always make your own for the latest games!

    Where was it made? And what class?
    IMO, those two questions seem to have a bigger effect on the speed of the card more than brand.

    It's been my experience that China/Taiwan cards tend to be slower than Japanese cards.
    I recently bought a 4GB ADATA (Class 6) that was made in Korea, and I was pleasantly surprised at how fast it is.

    Use of the Panaasonic SD formatter can make a significant difference in the appaarent speed of an SD card. I had a Dane 4Gb class 4 SD card thaat was exhibiting performance issues. After reformatting the card with the Panasonic formatter and placing the same files on the card the performance issues were resolved. Give it a try, what do you have to lose?

    It depends, sandisk is one of the most cloned TF cards on the market.
