    So i have a 2GB Patriot SD Card and it seems pretty full .
    I don't want to delete games just to add more games and i also wanna keep my Homebrew and Media .
    So i was thinking i might be needing a new SD Card .

    my plan is doing any of these ones :

    1. Get a 1GB and transfer all my homebrew and media . But if i do that then i might only be able to add like 2 or 3 games ?
    2. Get a 2GB and do the same thing with plan 1 . Pointless actually ...
    3. Get a 2GB and put only games in it ! That seems better ^^
    4. Get a 4GB and do the samething with plan 1. . Lol super pointless again !
    5. Get a 4GB , transer all my old games from the 2GB then fill the 4GB with games and leave the media and Homerew with the 2GB ? That plan seems okay .

    I have these SD Cards to pick from . ( all from the same local computer store so i can get it anytime ^^ )

    So yea which one xD

    lots to pick from .
    i know some people are just wondering , hey why isnt there a brand 2GB SD card ??
    well the only reason why it might not be there is because it's not in stock at the nearby store and i'm not risking going all the way somewhere else just to get a SD Card ! oh and a popular brand , Sandisk isn't there since that brand is pricey there O_O


    i have read soo many good things about them and i really need your help ! i can't pick between any of them [​IMG]


    so yea which one ! [​IMG]

    never heard of them before or are the are not well known at all so avoid them

    also take out the Patriot card as well


    imo you should get a A-data class 6 4GB card

    Settle with 1 of the following:
    CycloDS + 4gb A-Data Class 6
    CycloDS + 8gb Sandisk
    SCDS One + 4gb A-Data Class 6
    SCDS One + 8gb Sandisk

    Don't like Sandisk? Stick with Kingston that are made in Japan.
    Where to get all these fast and cheap? RealHotStuff.com
    Where to get it cheaper but longer shipping time ? dealextreme.com

    See the reason why most people have slowdowns on their flash card is not because of firmware or type of flash card. It's all based on how fast the flash card can read the micro sd / sdhc. Just make sure you purchase Class 6 or Class 4. Class 6 has less lag and tends to be much faster.
    Good names are Kingston, A-Data, Sandisk

    I just bought a 4GB Kingmax card for my Acekard 2 and it seems ok. It ran pretty fast until I had to reformat it though. Not sure why it slows down now.
