    I need something that'll work best with the acekard. I need something that won't corrupt and that reads fast.

    Kingston 4gb Class4 SDHC. Experiencing the TWEWY cutscene crash.

    Kingston is better, if only marginally. Both of them suck without the Panasonic SDFormatter.

    a-data in my opion sucks really bad. their cards tend to die. they used to be descent quality but i have had problems with them lately. just use kingston and get the panasonic sd formatter and you should be good.

    Buy the card locally from a bricks and mortar store if you want to be sure its decent.

    I swear a good % of the ones sold online really cheap are fakes (from the official factories, cards that did not make the grade, packaged and sold anyway by dodgy people).

    I've had no issues with my locally purchased 8GB Class 4 sandisk.
    A 4GB kingston I purchased from DX was laggy as hell until formatted with the panasonic formatter. The MicroSD to SD adapter did not work also.

    I guess when you save some $ online you are choosing to 'take the risk'.

    Sandisk is a more well known brand. But keep in mind there are many other brands, all much cheaper than Sandisk which do the same job. A-data and Transcend for example.

    SanDisk may be well known, but I've only had problems with their memorycards. I've had general speed-issues with them and sometimes they even wiped themselves so all my data got lost. This may not be a big problem if you're using them for playing NDS games, but it certainly isn't nice at all. Hell, I lost more than 600+ photos when one of my SanDisk memorycards decided to wipe itself without a reason. And, yes I tried to rescue the data, but it was nowhere to be found.

    Since then I've only used Kingston memorycards and I've never had any problems with them at all except for accidentally deleting some data by myself [​IMG]

    Thanks for the help. I went and ordered a class 4 card with 4 gigs and an Edge.
