    Has anyone been using a 16GB MicroSDHC with a Cyclo yet?

    What brand/class did you buy, and how well does it work? Do you get lag or freezing issues?

    Sandisk seems to be the only brand I can find, and I don't know what class it is. But 16GB seems amazing, especially of you want to combine games and media together on one big card.

    But maybe a Transcend 8GB MicroSDHC is enough. I heard the 8GB Transcends are very good and at Newegg they're really cheap too.

    I've been using a 16GB Sandisk class4 micro-sdhc (made in Taiwan) ok now for a few weeks on CycloDS 1.51 FW.
    Made a lot of directories on it and put my games in, converted my old DS-X saves.
    Also just got my EZ 3-in-1 slot2 card and can now play GBA titles 100% ok (old Castlevania's)

    The amount of storage is pretty insane, have 40 games on it only using 3GB (!)
    Have had no problems so far [​IMG]

    Good to hear it works well. Yeah it's a lot of storage. I guess it holds more games than I would ever really want. Maybe I'll get an 8GB instead when I finally buy a new flash cart.

    hey its XMas spoil yourself with the 16GB, you could like put a 1000 GBA ROMs on it ;-P
    That EZ 3-in-1 slot2 card is the bizz, just been playing CV Aria of Sorrow again and it works perfectly and my GBA save goes in the directory on the micro-sdhc card woo! Man this CycloDS cart + EZ 3-in-1 blows away my old DS-X [​IMG]

    If your looking for cards, stick for 4 or 6, and I'd say use 8 tops, unless you plan to use your DS for media or reading a lot of stuff (like comics)

    Isn't there still the limit of 128 or 256 files in a directory? So eventually we might have to categorize games on MicroSDHCs?

    I think there's ~ 128 file limit in directories inc root. I categorise by company like GBA, Konami, Sega etc

    Yea, I think 8 gb is enough, unless you are adding your whole music library, or some movies.

    I have about 10 gb of music in total. Unless you do, I would recommend just an 8gb.
