    Hey all -
    I'm thinking about getting the Supercard unless somone else tells me different.
    I want to run EMU's, and watch full length movies. Is CF faster then SD? ie. which is better for watching movies etc.

    Anyone got one of those cheezy 4inch portable DVD players? The LCD on them isn't too great, is this about what the movies
    look like on the GBA SP?

    Anyone able to describe to me what the video quality looks like? If I have a 1gig card, and I pop a 600meg video on it, (Higher quality) will it look better then a 200meg video? What is the limitation on quality? I'm talking about non-anime movies.

    Donno if I got enough "?" marks so I'll add some more... ????..

    It's not impossible, you just need the right codecs.

    hmm.. Do you have to use moonshell - I've just kinda heard about it. Do you have to get a player in addition to what comes with the supercard?

    you can use cant use moonshell or dpg, you have to get filmplay.gba(hacked/ripped or whatever from gba movie player) from supercard site, then you have to convert your movies to gbm format
