    Recently got my R4 and 3 in 1 with a 1 gb Kingston Micro SD. I'm very pleased with it, however I want to purchase a 2 gb Micro SD now. I live in Australia and thought that this http://www.cheapchips.com.au/memory/sandis...emory-card.html looked like a good deal. Is it a good card/compatible with the R4? If anyone can recommend a better deal or a better card it would be much appreciated.

    I'm also very impatient, so fast shipping is quite important to me.

    You're out of luck if you want them locally. Dealextreme offers EMS, and you can use that with their Japanese 2GB Kingston.

    Will a Sandisk not work with the R4/Kingston reader?

    I have Sandisk 2GB(from Officeworks for 40 dollars during a sale) that works really well in EZF4 Lite Deluxe. Not sure about a R4 though [​IMG]

    Is speed write speed? And compatibility with roms or the R4 itself? I'm not that worried if I can't play Castlevania POR.

    This is tested personally: The Sandisk 2GB will crash in the R4. The Kingston 2GB Japan will crash in the R4, albeit much rarer. It is safely playable on the Toshiba/Kingston/PNY 2GB Japan micro SD.

    Thanks for that, I was just about to order the Sandisk! Do you know a good retailer that sells the Toshiba/Kingston cards? Preferably one with fast shipping. I ordered from dealextreme by standard shipping and it took forever.

    newegg is USA only.. dz-tech (or something) also has Kingstons. If you wait a while they will start to become mainstream (like the 1GB ones are)

    I have a Sandisk 2 GB and it works like a charm in my M3 Simply. Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow works perfect (also the intro), but I haven't tested Portrait of Ruins. Tony Hawk's Downhill Jam doesn't work very good. It has too many slowdowns to enjoy it.

    I caught sight of a Kingston Japan 2GB MicroSD card at my local electronics store. Will this work well with Castlevania : POR and other read/write speed-affected NDS games?
