    Hi,

    is there any microSDHC card that works fine with Castlevania Portraits of Ruin? Without freezing on teleporting!?

    Thank you in advance!

    Regards

    The A-data 4 gig micro sdhc Class 6 cards should run fine. They're the fastest available, are they not?

    There's also the toshiba one, which I hear is also excellent.

    These are only your guesses, I think.
    Could anyone confirm this?!

    Btw. there is also a Sandisk Class 6 Ultra 8GB card.
    But I think it is not only the Class (Speed) of the card that affects the proper use of Castlevania PoR.

    I think it also depends on what flash cart you're using.

    It does, but the above mentioned microSDHC's should have almost no problems at all with PoR.

    If you have a CycloDS this is guaranteed to play without lag/freeze.

    From what I've heard there are a lot more trouble with Sandisk memorycards compared to Kingston and A-data memorycards. They just don't have the access-time that's needed.

    Then look around more. The 8GB Sandisk microSDHC has almost no problems running PoR, apparently it'll misbehave near the end, but that's it. Rnadom access time is a good indicator, but it's not absolute.

    Kingston 4GB Japan/Taiwan? class 4
    Toshiba 4GB (Japan only) class 4
    Adata 4GB (Taiwan) class 6
    Sandisk 8GB (china) class 4

    You bought one of the new ultras? nice - have you run any benchmarks on them? cf_bench hd_tach etc?
    wanted to see how they compared with the standard class 4 jobs.
    Hoping they are better and not just at the high end of a large scale.
    If you could post be great!

    If anyone has trouble on AK2 there is a beta loader which is supposed to eliminate lag in castlevania on all sd cards - just check forum for it.
