    Not sure where to post this... if this is wrong feel free to move.


    Okay. so i just bought the DSTwo this is my second attempt to this order.....
    as for the first site :: r4ds-ds.com/
    Is a scam... took my money and now i have to wait. in hopes that my bank returns it... regardless i have to wait 10 days or so...
    So as you can imagine. im not very happy. as someone Recommended it to me...

    Anyhow i have ordered it from

    zhuzhuchina.com/store/

    I am hoping that they are Legit.
    as i am a little tense right now due to last site.
    and im a little worried atm because i paid for this thing 4 hours ago or so...
    and it still hasn't updated from :: Confirmed by User - we are checking

    Can anyone calm my nerves here. or give me some insight....

    Also i did the free shipping China Air...
    But im From U.S.A so i am hoping it ships to here... 0.0

    Anyone?

    They have to do it manually, since paypal is cracking down on flas hcart sites they can't use automated systems. It's 3AM in china, too, so they're probably asleep.

    zhuzhuchina is the first website I'd recommend tbh.
    They even offered us to replace any defective AceKard 2i's for free even if they weren't bought at their website once.

    Er, I wouldn't suggest MicroSDs from import shops. They tend to be crappy/fake models, which can easily cause problems.

    I've always ordered from Real Hot Stuff. They're based in New Jersey, and they can ship to the west coast in 2-3 days. I would think that east coast shipments are delivered within 1-2 days. Ordering from RHS and then getting a 16GB MicroSD separately from Newegg (free shipping) would've been cheaper and less risky.

    I've never ordered from Zhu Zhu China, but if Rydian backs it up, it's legit. You'll probably just have to wait for a while before your order processes and gets shipped to you. But just so you know for next time, RHS is a good, American-based seller.

    You may also want to consider looking into iMenu once you get your SCDS2. I prefer it over the default GUI and loader.

    Don't worry too much about the class as the cards are usually much faster than the minimum required by the class rating anyway and I have had no problems with a Class 4 card. Class 10 is pointless and class 6 is less common than 2 and 4 so if your card is class 4 there's no reason to worry. Even class 2 will probably work fine.

    The issue is if it's even a proper MicroSD in the first place. Unbranded, fake, wrong listed capacity, etc.

    Okay cool. i mean honestly its a DS game. it dot take much transfer speed for one.
    And 2 im pretty sure they wouldn't sell a chip that was worthless as that leads to bad reviews.

    Actually DS games do need an acceptable read speed, and if you have a MicroSD without an acceptable read speed, games will crash and/or not load properly. We see it all the time here.

    You don't seem to understand that the majority of what you're dealing with comes out of China.

    China is not the US. China in general doesn't give two fucks about concepts such as "branding", "trademarks", and "support". Lately they've claimed to start caring (with more or less humorous results), but the majority of the cheapest products you'll get out of there are knockoffs and fakes.

    This is why it's so important to pick a proper shop and get proper merchandise from import stores. It's way too easy to get a clone or fake product.

    Even MicroSDs with name brands on them are often fake when they come from China.
