    Is there any homebrew app for DS flashcards that will test the speed of the SD card? The card readers in the PC's here won't go any faster than 5megs per second and the little USB readers I have only do 4megs per second, so HDtach is kinda useless here and I'd like to do some speed testing. I'd like to see how my Transcend 2gig microSD compares to the Kingston 2gig microSD. I know the Kingston is faster (PoR didn't crash on me), but I'd like to see how much faster.

    Is there such a thing? It technically could be possible right?

    If no such app exists, someone should make one. It would be dead useful.

    Is there somewhere that lists accurate speeds of those 2 cards? Link?

    Woah, that's a pretty good homebrew idea you got there! [​IMG] Sadly I don't know a thing about making homebrews [​IMG] but like you said, this kind of thing would be really useful [​IMG] . Let's just hope somebody who can do something like that come across this topic and give a try to create this [​IMG] .

    Yeah, I can't even program a .bat file without copying or just altering someones else's efforts. I suppose I could learn if I wanted to, but I'm just not interested in the programming side of computers, just the finished products. That's why I mentioned it when the idea hit me.....well, that and wanting to know the true speeds of my microSD cards.

    I was able to get it to run on my r4.
    Now, tell me what the numbers mean...
