    For 4 GB MicroSDHC,I've heard A-Data, but those strangely have had problems as of now with the Cyclo, so some people recommend Transcend, which is also 4GB and class 6.

    For 2 GB or 1 GB, get a Kingston (Japan).

    Both of which you can probably get from Newegg. I do not recommend buying from the same store you buy the Cyclo from.

    if 4GB go with A-Data 4gb here I will give you a good link to buy it from and also forgot to mention Micro SDHC takes away battery faster and I mean drains. I baught my 2GB Kingston from there and really good service :http://www.canadacomputers.com/index.php?do=ShowProduct&cmd=pd&pid=018789&cid=990.218.987

    SD 2GB and smaller, SD High Capacity >2 GB

    so all 4GB+ cards are automatically SDHC.
    (not really ... there are some non-standard 4GB SD cards, but they are not conform to the standard)

    anyways ... the link given earlier is very old.
    It does not contain any SDHC cards. (eg no 4 GB A-Data, no class 4 and 6 sandsik 8GB)

    Get a Transcend 4GB Class 6 at Newegg.

    Sandisk 8GB from amazon.com [​IMG]

    Stay away from the Adata 4GB if you have a cycloDS.

    I would only recommend Sandisk. They are the leading manufacture of memory cards. Some of the major brands are actually have their memory cards manufactured and branded by San Disk.

    i'm also currently trying to figure out a SD/SDHC card to get for my Cyclo, but it seems everyone in this thread is saying something different. it would be nice to know which memory card will definately work with the Cyclo.

    i've been thinking of the Kingston 4GB, is it a good choice?

    The Transcend 4GB class 6 Micro SDHC is fast enough for my PSP and would recommend for any DS flashcart (plus its only like 13-15$ at newegg.com). I also own 2x 2GB kingston which work great in my R4DS.
