    I heard somewhere that slot-2 m3's can read SDHC in media extend mode. Is this true?

    If that's the case, then would it be possible to access a SDHC in slot-2 via one of the filebrowsers that has simultaneous slot-1/2 access like dsfile2 or ds-dos?

    NOR/NAND Memory is much faster than writing to an SDHC.
    And you can only write to one of the two at once.

    Yes, it's probably possible. Why would it matter?

    Once slot-1/2 access is more stable, imagine if M3 Team incorporated it into their firmware. It would be more perfect than the M3 Real Perfect Bundle. You'd have all the functionality of the M3 Real with the added bonus of a second SDHC slot. Double SDHC storage means more space for mp3s, dpgs, etc.

    How do you get SDHC cards working with Moonshell? When I put my SDHC card in my M3 Lite it doesn't start up, It just hangs at a black screen. Do I have to have the card formatted in a particular way? It's a sandisk 4 gig MiniSDHC.

    I also have a Sandisk 4GB micro-sd card (non SDHC as far as I know). I can't get it to work with my M3 Perfect Lite nor the M3 Simply. Doesn't it work at all, or is there a trick to it?

    Sandisk 4GB MicroSD is SDHC as far as I know.

    Actually, there were a limited number of 4gb micro SD cards made that were non- SD-HC.
    It's possible to find them sometimes. They are slower than the SD-HC compliant ones however.
    I'm assuming they won't work on a DS card, as far as I know.

    Sigh... No you can't, because M3 perfect doesn't support micro SDHC. The flashkart will not recognize it at all.... If you want to use a Micro sdhc card, get one of these.

    CycloDS, M3 real, SCDS1 SDHC, Acekard 2, Acekard R.P.G, EDGE, DSTT...
