    On Newegg, what is the best 1 or 2GB microSD card for a EZ-Flash V?

    Thanks.

    I have always heard that the Kingston 1GB card SDC/1GB (Japan) is the best. I bought two of these on Newegg for $13 a piece. I got the TAIWAN cards tho. But then I ordered two SDC/512MB cards and they came from Japan. So it works for me. I have also heard people say A-data works well too.

    I am a noob too, so hope this helps some. You may want an opinion from some experts tho.

    speed on micro sd should not be a big issue, except people find that using high speed micro sd cards formatted well can stop the freezing in PoR happening frequently

    buy the kingston if you want to gamble (mine came in taiwan)
    or buy PNY or Toshiba micro SD for Japan (bit more expensive)

    i did buy 3 pny 1gb and all 3 were japan, Model SD-C01G

    also i bought my pny when the prices were down for a bit was like $18 each

    Kingston Taiwan i got were odd, someone tested it and wasnt 1gb heres the data from disk info i got

    Kingston Taiwan 998,506,496 bytes (952 MB)
    PNY Japan 1,029,832,704 bytes (982 MB)

    also the kingston taiwan fails to work completely on old Acekard (AKFS) freezes at game selection menu, and corrupts the MicroSD if you write data with Moonshell or DSOrganize (even saving configs)
    game played fine on supercard lite with kingston taiwan. (castlevania froze as usual)

    Is this what you bought?

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?...N82E16820178129

    I know the numbers don't match up in the item title, but there seem to be so many numbers related to these cards that it's hard to tell which is which.
