    I think its comfirmed that it works,watch this video,and you should get a SanDisk microSD.I reccomend over 2gigs because ak2i works faster with MicroSDHC cards.
    oh and that dsi xl on the video is Japanse.. so don't order tha ak2i yet until you're sure it works.

    Brand doesn't matter as much as it's Class rating and quality, and a typically good indication of that is where it's made.

    A Sandisk from China typically doesn't perform as good as a Transcend from Japan.
    I have an ADATA 4GB Class 6 from Korea, Class 6 -should- do a minimum of 6MB/s avg, mine does 15.8MB/s avg.
    Some Class ratings are "false" and will use the highest burst speed, the fastest the card went during a transfer.

    Get a class 4 Toshiba/Kingston C08G 8GB card. They get 20MB/s read speeds, which is far faster than the majority of Class 6 cards.

    Write speed is of little importance when it comes to Flashcarts.

    Some brands are all over the place (speed wise). My legit ADATA 8GB class 6 went at 2.4MB/s.

    Didn't try too many brands after that, just stuck with Kingston and sandisk for the reliability.

    If that was a Japan made card then it may not be down to the card. Even if the lexar was actually the same speed, it will still be much faster because it's formatted in FAT32 and has a 512K block size.

    If you format your 2GB Kingson to FAT32 with a 512KB block size, you should notice a speed increase.

    The DSi XL is just a fat DSi. Same firmware, no major differences at all. So, yes, the Acekard 2i will work on the DSi XL.

    Yes it'll work, I've tested it personally.

    But if your Acekard had a contact issue in a DSi, it might have serious contact issue in a DSi XL and not work without added support.

    Although I recently bought a new Acekard from gamekool, and the build quality was much better.
