    I went up to a shop today and the woman there told me it might be unstable and couldn't work for some devices, like not working well on a camera. Hence I decided against buying atm and came online to ask for help.

    Btw I use a DSTT/TTDS cart.

    I think it's only the 4GB Micro SDs that were made before the SDHC concept that are unstable. If I remember, there were a few like that, and devices kinda used to chug a lot while using such a card, such as the R4DS. However, no-one really sells them anymore, as they've been replaced by SDHC 4GB.

    If it's a 4GB Micro SDHC you were going to purchase, there shouldn't be any problems with your DSTT being able to handle it. So yes, it should be okay to purchase it under the circumstance that it's a Micro SDHC card. [​IMG]

    A-Data's 4GB MicroSDHC works very well with DS flash cards. Just make sure your flash card is SDHC compatible.

    Well, I myself don't own a 4GB SDHC sadly, but my close friend uses a DSTT, with 4GB Sandisk, and he hasn't had any issues at all with his memory card not running.

    I have a 4GB microSDHC, and it works perfectly for a year now.
    I've played with it in a AceKard2, M3Real and now the CycloDS Evolution, and it worked great with all of them.

    If you get a 4GB SDHC (not plain SDHC), and a device that says it supports SDHC (not just plain SD), then it's pretty much guaranteed to work.
