Since the DSONE EOS doesn't have the ability to auto-set the SD speed I was wondering if there's a recommended speed to set microSDs at by their Class?

For example my Kingston 2GB microSD is Class 6 that's set at 3x Speed right now. Should I set this higher to maybe 4x or even Fast?

I'm not 100% sure myself. I think you're right in what you think it is, but I've never really quite understood it. It's probably best to set it as high as your card can work with it set.

That's just the thing. It will work on Fast but I don't understand what the speed setting is for because I see no noticeable difference between 3x and Fast.

I know that higher speeds allow certain games to play better (i.e. Tony Hawk's Downhill Jam, Castlevania: POR) but that's just about read speed I assume?

I guess the other thing that concerns me is that would a higher speed wear out the microSD faster from too many read/writes?

    That must be rough. Productive I'm sure but hard to balance with daily life

    @Maximumbeans, Indeed. I've been working on getting this Infecutus chip to work on my PS2. But after soldering, I realised that a plastic piece was missing from the power ribbon cable to the power and eject buttons.
  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    Now I could go with soldering the contacts from the cable to the connector on the mobo, but doesn't sound like a good permanent solution.
  • Maximumbeans @ Maximumbeans:
    Man, that's beyond my brain :rofl: I'm no good with hardware for now. I'd like to get into hardmods in future though
  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    @Maximumbeans, Maybe start practice soldering. Get a cheap-ass soldering iron and follow some good YouTube tutorials.

    Least my experience has gotten better than over a decade ago. My iron would constantly bump into components and break them.
  • Maximumbeans @ Maximumbeans:
    Sounds good. I actually did soldering but like 16 years ago for school so uuuuh probably rusty haha
  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    @Maximumbeans, Same here. I did soldering at school from a teacher who I honestly liked since he had plenty of good electronics experience.

    It was like all clear and fancy. Tbf I'm not too experienced with chess, but would like to learn someday.
