    I just ordered my cyclods, (upgrading frm an R4, as i dont see them doing anything new for their card now) and im looking for a decent 4gb+ microsdhc. Im just confused about the different "classes" etc. Any of these any good?

    The higher the class, the faster the card. Class 6 is better than Class 4 is better than Class 2.

    Sandisk and PNY are both reliable brands, but I'm not too sure about the Play.com one.

    For the CycloDS, a class 4 should work perfectly. You can tell the class by the symbol "C" with a number inside (2,4, or 6) printed on the card. If it's not there, then you'll have to read the specifications on the website.

    Where did you found that, kokiri_link?

    I found the same on ebay for £20 including postage, it was brand new so I was pretty lucky.

    I've got SanDisk 8GB Class 4 - I'm very happy with it. No lags.

    Interesting, 2gb are bit pricy there but 8gb are awesome priced there.

    Thanks for the link! Will use it when I get to order 8gb again [​IMG]

    I have a Sandisk 8GB microsdhc that I use in my Cyclo DS and it works great. Not only does it handle the games great, but also works perfectly handling my music and videos on moonshell. I would recommend www.meritline.com. I got my 8gb microsdhc a few weeks ago for $62 with free shipping. It was a great deal, plus I got it in 3 days.

    I have had no lag in the games that have had problems with my Sandisk 8gb MicroSDHC!

    Also remember though that there is a limit for files in folders and with a card this size it is better to leave all the Roms on the root of the card or in multiple folders.
