    try using SAKURA instead see if that helps [​IMG]


    note: Tho that Castlevania DOS is notorious for having issues with SLOW memory cards!

    Where intellect matters
    Class 2 cards I heard get murdered, Class 4 cards (like mine) freeze every now and then you just gotta save alot, Class 6 cards I think should do fine.

    Try turning everything like cheats and soft reset off that might help.

    Having recently tried a few different SD/SDHC cards of differing specs and benchmarked them (see this thread), I have found that (as with older SD cards back in the days of my R4), it seems brand name matters more than Class specification!

    I will check both Castlevania on my Kingston 8GB (Class 4) to see if there are problems.

    Out of interest DDD13, what make is your SDHC card?

    UPDATE:

    Ok, I've tested both castlevania D.O.S. & P.O.R.....

    Kingston (Class 4) 8GB MicroSDHC
    P.O.R.: Seems fine.
    D.O.S.: Got very slight slowdown right at the end of the title screen video. Plus; graphical glitch on first boss (* see note below)

    Kingston 2GB MicroSD
    P.O.R.: Seems fine
    D.O.S.: Intro & game plays flawlessly

    * note.
    I got a few graphical glitches running a trimmed version of D.O.S. on both cards.
    Using a clean version of the rom gave no glitches on the 2GB (MicroSD) BUT I still got a garbled image of the first boss using the clean rom on the 8GB (MicroSDHC)!
