I've got an 8GB Transcend Class 6 (From Newegg - Sold Out) in my CycloDS currently and haven't had a problem with it yet. The only problem I have had was inserting the card and getting the CycloDS to see it. But I'm pretty sure that's the CycloDS's fault, not the cards' fault. Probably a pin alignment issue when I insert it. If it happens, just take it out and insert it again. It'll work eventually.Rayder said:I don't know what flashcart you have, but if you have a CycloDS, AVOID the Transcend 8gig Class 6 like the plague.
It's better to not get attached to a particular brand. We've been going over and over this since the microSD format was launched. Sandisk are almost always overpriced for what you get, but their Ultra cards are very good. Kingston has made great cards and crappy cards. This usually corresponds to the country of manufacture, but not always (Japan being better than Taiwan).shadowhunter93 said:Yipes Raydar! Thanks for the pro tips, and no I think ur an expert with cards compared to me. Are ADATA cards reliable? Or should I stick to better brands like Transcend/Kingston/Sandisk?
QUOTE said:I think it might have something to do with read/write speeds. My Class 4 has roughly the same read/write speed, whereas the Class 6 had a significantly slower write than it had read. But I'm just guessing.
As for response time.....the class 6 is 0.8ms and the Class 4 is 1.6ms. Yet the ONLY game the Class 4 has an issue with is Castlevania PoR. wacko.gif But then again, I have by no means played all the DS ROMs.
I know one of the people that told me they had the same issue said the card worked just fine in their DSTT or EDGE (can't rem which it was), so it's definitely an issue with the Cyclo just being particular.
I wrote up a post at the TC forums (when they were still up) saying about the same thing I said in my previous reply and have never received any kind of response from TC directly about it, other than to try this-or-that from other members, which I had already done. TC themselves never actually responded. One thing someone there noticed is that cards that didn't work right formatted to a different size than the same brand that DID work right, which is why I asked about format size in my previous reply.
I have heard people complain about A-Data doing the same thing to them on Cyclo's, but I don't have any A-Data cards to test that.
OH, and I forgot one little tidbit of the flakiness I mentioned.....the Class 6 wouldn't allow a firmware update of the Cyclo to complete. huh.gif
It's all pretty annoying to me because I bought that Class 6 FOR the CycloDS so I wouldn't have issues with any games. Boy did that backfire. blush.gif
