    Huh? Isn't it already released a few days ago?

    I still haven't upgraded because there is still no Dutch update [​IMG] I Don't know if it will come either...

    ?? How does SDHC only work for multimedia? If you have an SDHC card, would that mean if any part of any of your ROMs are past the 4GB barrier, it freezes? that sounds dumb. This stinks for people like me who only leave one card in at all times.

    I don't think any rom will start from SDHC. SDHC uses a different way to store the file system. For media it's easy to change it, but for games it's another story.

    Still, it's a start. Nice for people who want to have many movies on one card. I think there will be an update in the future that makes it possible to use games from SDHC.

    Was the whole Sim City DS issue fixed yet or no?

    Cause I really wanna stop carrying around my Animal Crossing just so I can save one game on my M3...

    Was fixed over a month ago, the Sim City issue. Just update your game manager to 34D.

    I wonder if this will work on mini SDHC cards.

    Will Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin work on M3 CF without freezing in the submenus now?

    Hmm, I barely use my M3 SD right now, but if it supports SDHC for games anytime soon, I might have to use it. I like the R4DS much better, but I have a 8GB SDHC card lying around that I don't even use (the phone I was going to use it on died, so I can't use it anymore). It'd be good to have all my games to decide from as opposed to a quarter of that.
