    My apologies if this question has been asked before, or if I'm posting this in the wrong area

    About how many games can fit on a 4gb microsd card? I’m buying a Cyclos evo card today and am trying to figure what size microsd card I should go with.

    I’m thinking about buying this one

    Thanks in advance for any help

    Right behind you
    Depends on which games and if you trim or not. But you should be able to get 50 odd on easy.

    EDIT: Great cad btw, had one until I upgraded to 8 gigs.

    Use common sense. Most games range from 16mb (some are smaller) all the way to 128mb (some are bigger).

    I use DSWiki and have a 8GB card. But if you don't want to use DSWiki it's not necessary.

    are you kidding? if you store ONLY 128 MB games , its about 35

    Assuming that most of the games arent 128 MB , its way more.

    Wouldn't YOU like to know?
    A 4GB MicroSD card actually has 3814MB of available space.

    The average size of an NDS ROM is 43.4MB untrimmed, and 36.5MB trimmed.

    So if you don't trim your ROMs, you can fit about 73 ROMs, give or take a few.

    If you trim them, you can fit about 104 ROMs on your card.

    Yep.

    I went through my list of games, selected every game that I thought I might conceivably want to play again in the future, and it only came to 2.2GB.

    4GB of games is too many to scroll through [​IMG] you'd need folders, and then it kinda becomes like you are simply putting games on your card for the sake of it.
