    from wat everyone told me, the bigger the class the faster the card. so class 6 is great compared to most class 2 or 4 micro sd/sdhc cards. i got an a-data class 6 4gb micro sdhc for $14-15 on amazon (not sure how much exactly). mine comes next week. yay me.

    Get a Class-6 or higher card and any and all issues related to card speed will become irrelevant. That said, A-DATA 4GB and Transcend 4GB cards are popular choices in Class-6.

    Sandisk make great readers... I've also mainly bought Sandisk microSD's and have an 8GB and neither give me any issues at all. The 8GB also comes in a bundle with a MicroSD/M2 reader that works like a charm....

    So what are the best non-SDHC cards for the Real?
    I have no use for a card larger than 2gb, and I'd like the best card possible for the Real I'm planning on purchasing soon.

    If you don't need SDHC high capacity, then look at the Sandisk Premier and Ultra range of microSD cards... They both have lightning fast access times... SHDC Class 6 only write up to 6mb/s whereas the Premier Sandisk 2GB can write up to 9MB/s

    Info on SD and microSD -> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Secure_Digital_card

    Some cards support the MiniSD and I noted in DealeXtreme someone said that the microSD>miniSD adapter didn't work in a flashcart they had... is this often the case? I've been thinking 'bout it and it seems unlikely.

    I ask 'cuz I'm about to buy a microSD card for my phone. I'd use it in a EZFlash if ever i buy one.

    I would buy the one that meets your demands. The 4gb looks fine but I would go with the 8gb if I were going to stuff it with mp3's and dpg's, I hope that helps.

    Ok, Thanks.

    But would a Class 4 card have problems with games such as Castlevania Portrait of Ruin?
