    So I just bought the supercard two and it is an incredible product.

    I am using it for the snes emulation as much as the ds games

    But I initially purchased 4gb micro sd cards and then went overboard on the roms and seems a larger card is needed.

    Just wondering if anyone has had any issues when using a 16 gb card? Not sure if you have a large card with alot of stuff on it if it will slow things down and cause games to not play correctly or any other issues.

    Thanks

    Im using a 32 gb sdhc and it's fine.

    only issue was the video player wouldnt read any vids.. formatting solved it.

    Been searching around, looks like I may be better off going woth a 8gb card.
    the 16gb ones seem to have slow read/write speeds from what I see
    Im not going to buy a sandisk from what I read about the current quality,a nd taking a risk on a $50+ card that I hope will be allright doesnt sound like a smart move

    Just wanted a big card as Im giving a DSI with the supercard to my nephews and wanted to cram it full of as many games as I could

    What kind is it?
    The more I look at what a good card to get is the more posts I see about this brand being crap, this game not working on that card.

    I dont know what to get.

    I just came across this one http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16820220524

    Looks allright, think I might just try that out

    When you get it, could perform a quick test to see what it's Latency and Read Speed is ?
    You'd need HDTach(free program) and a Card Reader.
    8GB Class 6 and I get 0.9ms and 14.9 MB/s

    If it gets near them speeds I'll probably buy one myself, and if you could check the Write Speed too, not sure what you can use for that though :/

    I have the same card as RoMee, and the only trouble I ran into was with Mario vs. Donkey Kong Mini-Land Mayhem (issues with graphics) and Dark Dawn (wouldn't load). It's all good now since supercard released a patch to fix both.

    Very nice, I think their write speed test is a little innacurate tbh(CrystalDiskMark that is) as I get 10+ MB/s with my Class 6 and pretty certain I don't get that when I'm actually copying the files. And pretty certain it's not a pc issue as it's the same on others.

    The read test is pretty accurate and I like the look of that speed, Latency should be very low, would be nice to have a number to go with it though.

    The latency was .5 when I tested on HDtach.

    So has anyone tried the wintec class 10 card yet?

    Just wondering if its any good. It keeps getting 1 bad review for every good on newegg. But seems most of the bad are that it doesn't write at class 10 speed
