    I'm trying to find a good brand Class 6 Micro SDHC stick for the Acekard. Any solid suggestions?

    I can't find anything above class 4 from Kingston, which sucks as it was the preferred brand. I've also heard a LOT of bad things about A-Data and Transcend brand sticks in general.

    Heard A-DATA is really good. And so far the best commented here besides Kingston.


    A-DATA 4GB Micro SDHC Class 6 It's only $7.49 USD

    Go for it...

    Kingston 8GB Class 4

    a-data 4gbs are probably the best you can get at the moment. kingston isn't all that great, they only have a good rep because some of their cards are rebranded toshiba

    Which is funny as I can never find actual Toshiba brand cards anywhere. I currently have 2 Kingston Japan SD-C02G cards, 2 GB, which are rebranded Toshiba and reported to be some of the better sticks for flash card usage. I paid $3 apiece for them. But I find the 2 GB capacity isn't quite what I need for games.

    My kingston 4G class 4 outperforms my verbatim 4G class 6. Go figure, it's not all about the class rating it passes for the sd associate badge.

    I have a class 6 Transcend card and it works just fine. Got it from Newegg, I think.

    yeah, i think the toshiba branded ones are mostly only sold in japan. a bunch of other western companies sell them though - i've happened upon two by chance under different brands, one 1gb dane-elec and one 2gb integral, both cheaper than the prices kingston sold for at the time (and of course with kingston, unless you see the actual card when buying, you might land one of the inferior taiwan versions). you just need to look out for the SD-CXXX JAPAN text, it appears on all toshibas i think (not sure about HC)

    Radio Shack is my best local outlet and they charge an insane fortune for much any card. I'd have to order anyting to get a decent price.

    Now, if only I could determine if my unbranded Micro SD reader can read SDHC as well... PC properties show it as a Chipbank brand reader, which I can find zippo about via google. If it can't read SDHC then I need to pay extra for a reader that can.

    +1 for Adata, I've had mine for a few months now with no problems.

    Still, I don't know why anyone would have need for more than 2 gigs... well I suppose music and video. But I only use mine for a few games at a time.

    I third it. Used it with my old CycloDS Evo, and am using it now with my Acekard 2.1 Works perfectly.

    i have 1 2gb card just for dsoom and 1 just for neods. when you start to carry genesis, snes, nes, sega gamegear and master system, gameboy, scummvm, and then you want nds roms as well and homebrew... you quickly run out of space. it isn't always convenient to carry more than 1 msd on you at any one time.

    speaking of movies i have 1 2gb just for movies when i travel. i'm in the market for an 8gb myself, but i'm just not sure what to purchase yet.

    Well, there you go. I just use my psp for that. It be pretty. Still cool though, I didn't realize there were emulators on NDS for all that out there.

    Amazon bumped their 4 GB Kingston with USB reader down to $9. I have free 2 day shipping right now as I'm on a 1 month Amazon Prime trial memebrship. As my current ROM and homebrew selection doesn't even reach 3 GB, I decided paying $19 for an 8 GB card was too much for my needs.

    I got the 4 GB Kingston today. It's stamped C04G JAPAN and so far, works just as well as my 2 GB sticks do. The Micro SD reader that was included with it is cute, if tiny, but the Chipbank reader that Stuffs4Kids sent me with the Acekard reads MicroSDHC and seems to be fast enough to notmess with the tiny Kingston reader.

    Another alternative is Transcend. I have one myself. No problems at all!
