what is the best microsd card for the cyclo ds?
Check this guide out.
Kingston (Japan) MicroSD 2GB is the fastest though.
so i should get a card with a fast read time to prevent lag?
and what is random access time?
Yep. I'd say that if the CycloDS can read the files fast (the game .nds), it'll prevent lag. ...althugh I hardly ever see lag nowadays.
There are two problem games that somewhat rely on the microSD to determine how well it runs. Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin is one, and the other is Tony Hawk's Downhill Jam.
Otherwise, you can really pick any other microSD and it'll run the game just fine.
It's personal choice about what size you want.
Bottom line though, I'd stick with something by Kingston. It gets good reviews all-around, and I can say personally that I've never had any problems with mine.
I'd question the importance of the speed test thing too, because the second MicroSD I picked up was "Made in Taiwan," which is supposed to be slower then those "Made in Japan" and reportedly have problems with Portrait of Ruin. But after I finished griping about it and actually tested it, it worked fine with no lag.
So yeah, just make sure it's Kingston, I'd say.
1GB Kingston Japan
2GB Kingston Japan (I have this >SigSig
Right with you brother. I got a Kingston 2GB Taiwan and it never freezes or lags for PoR or Downhill Jam (the "problem games"). Apparently, the difference between Taiwan and Japanese Kingstons are exaggerated, and I'm sure they must be on par with each other by now. Plus, the Kingston Taiwan is smaller so it fits flushly in the Cyclo.
Oh and, don't get A-Data, there has been lots of problems with their MicroSDs lately.
Kingston/SanDisk are the most reputable MicroSD in the market. They work perfectly (unless you get some fake/bootlegged copy of it).
Where do I get a cheap Kingston 2GB Taiwan?
There are two versions, both under $10. Get the one with only 1 Gold Award, not the one with 3 Gold Awards.
Why not Japan. That's better.
