2GB is the largest size card you can run games from. They added SDHC support, but only for playing media files.

I don't think the speed of the card really matters for GBA games. GBA games can't be run directly from the memory card, so they are copied to the M3's RAM and run from there.

I use a Kingston 2GB microSD card and I've never had a problem with it.

I use the Kingston 2GB MicroSd as well and highly recommend it even though i have to leave the micro to minisd adapter permanently in my EZ4

I Also have a 1GB sandisk wich was my first sd card for my cart and it works perfectly for the job

But don't go with sandisk if above 1GB formating problems turns a 2gb to 1gb (and if you format a sandisk 2gb it void's the warranty )


Spec's from 32MB Benchmark (using USB 1.1)

Kingston 2GB
