    Any yu gi oh game I've played on my flashcart runs really slow. They work just fine from the cartridge. So my question is this, is it my cyclo? or is it the my micro sd card?

    My sd card is this:
    SanDisk class4
    Mobile Ultra
    16 gb micro sdhc
    made in china

    before I had that one I had an older 2gb that's the same (but with no class info and not hc (obviously))

    So is it the cards, my cart, or are the yu gi oh games require too much for emulating?

    it is your micro sd card

    made in japan is usually safe.. made in taiwan/china you can already be suspicious about bad speed

    that's odd that it only effects card games I've played. I've tried all of 'em on the DS and it's only when the AI is "thinking" that it slows down. I've played hundreds of games and it's only these that I've noticed it on..

    So do I need a better class # or just a card made in japan? Any specific brand I should be looking for?

    16 gig class 10 like this one work?

    If it's really just "thinking" then yeah I'd say it's an issue with the Cyclo, but it may be loading stuff in the background (and just pretending to be thinking) so the user doesn't know about load issues.

    the higher the speed class the faster the write speed, not read. have you tried a full format of your micro sd card using the panasonic formatter?

    i did some testing with a kernel developer a while back and the class 4 sandisk has the worst read speed out of the lot.

    Have you guys actually played the yugioh card games on your ds to know for a fact that it's my memory card? I just got a new one (not that I'm complaining about the new one, it is better) and I've still got the same problem. The "AI thinking dots" (for lack of a better name) sometimes still take too long (I've counted as high as 56 times in a row).

    For anyone that's actually played a yugioh game, can someone with multiple flashcarts do a test? It should only take one battle per cart. Specifically, I have a cyclo that I'm having this problem with.
