    Okay, so I know this game might be old but for some reason GTA Chinatown wars ROM that I put on my Kingston 4GB SDHC card
    for the M3 Real seems to slow down quite often (frames problem), and also the multiplayer doesn't seem to work. Is there fixes
    for these problems? (Im running the newest system firmware found on the M3 Sakura FAQs topic [03/06/10])

    More Info:
    The GTA rom is clean to my knowledge.

    Class 4, but I don't see how that makes much difference to gameplay speed, or multiplayer issues...

    The class basically says how fast your micro sd will be able to communicate with your m3i zero. So if your m3i zero needs certain data from the rom, it needs to read the microsd and grab it from the rom. The faster it does this the smoother the game will play.

    Sometimes the classes aren't an exact representation of how fast your microsd can be accessed. I have a class 4 Kingston and I have no slowdown problems at all for GTA, so it might be that it's more of a class 5 card. It just depends, look into getting a class 6 micosd (I have a class 6 Transcend and I never have any freezes or slowdowns in roms that normally have these problems).

    Nope, but I have tried the Castlevania movie thing and it lagged badly. But didn't lag on my Acekard.

    Does the amount of space used contribute to the slowdown?
    Because i have about 300MB left.. (i think) I could try deleting
    some games i dont play and the movie 300.

    Amount of space left counts on hard drives, so it might on memory cards too.

    Ok so i deleted about 900MB worth of games and now have 1.03GB free space,
    I tried the game and it seems a tad bit faster but there are still noticeable frame
    rate issues, not much difference from when I had 100MB of space. Well it was
    worth a try anyways, now what about the multiplayer problems? They still
    exist.

    The multiplayer should work, make sure your rom is absolutely clean.
