    I'm currently waiting for my M3 Real to arrive in the mail. I have read that the save games are saved to the SD card. I'm wondering how much space should be reserved on the card for game saves? I will be using a 2gb card, and I'm estimating that I can fit around 45 games on it. How much space do you typically use for game saves?

    Typically 512kb for each game, although some games use a little more IIRC, Nintendogs being one of those games.

    I heard you're supposed to keep a certain amount of free space on your card at all times because if you fill it up completely there will be issues with speed or something.. is that true?

    Nintendogs is 2mbit, or 256 kilobyte. The highest DS save type is 4mbit as of yet.

    Yep, but the M3 Real creates 512kb save files for all the games.

    Thanks for the info. It is possible to have 3 saves per game correct?
