    Canada MicroSD card came with an SD card adapter, meaning it will also fit into my digital camera, I was wondering if it's possible to use the micro SD (already loaded with R4DS firmware, games etc.) in my camera, take X amount of pictures, then remove the micro SD from my digital camera, put it back into my R4 and then view the pictures i just took on my DS? or will there be issues with file saving or something...? i really don't kno, can anyone help?

    the phone will format the card for its own use, which will means it will probably delete all of ur games and stuff

    wtf, not for phone, camera, and GPS can all work with the microSD and/or adapter. Im sure you cant switch the card between devices...I HIGHLY doubt it and I mean i'm 99.9% sure.

    Cameras usually use a specific directory structure (mine uses n:\DCIM\[user chosen number]MSDCF). So, if you create that structure on the card first, your camera might use it like normal. You just don't want to risk the camera formatting the card first. You'd have to browse to that directory in moonshell to see the images, though.

    Also, check to see if your camera uses a different file system (FAT/FAT32/whatever). You'll want those to be the same, too.

    Should work assuming they both support the same FAT structure. Just in case I'd backup your stuff before trying. But basically you should just try. It won't do anything bad if you back things up and I think it has a good chance of working.

    One thing to keep in mind however, is that if you have a good camera and you're taking 7 megapixel pictures that your DS won't be able to handle picture of that size. Either way the pictures will be loading slow unless you make small pictures.
