    I just bought the M3 mini-sd bundle with passkey 3 from realhotstuff. I actually already got a tracking number after an hour or so.

    My main question is what is the best brand of mini-sd for the money/size?

    Ive seen crazy auctions on ebay with ATROCIOUS shipping charges . 19.99 , 15.99 ect for a what amounts to a 6 ounce f'n item.

    2gb seem to average about 50-60 , 1gb 30 or so.

    What seems to have the best compatibility with M3? what vendor ect?

    Kingston was always my favorite , even for my amiga compact flash adapter.

    I have the regular Nintendo DS.

    Thanks guys

    I will be putting ds and gba games on it for reference.

    Forget eBay, try Newegg. All the MiniSD cards (http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList....&Subcategory=68) there have $5 FedEx 3-day shipping. If you live in NJ, CA, or TN you'll have to pony up for sales tax, but that shouldn't be a problem for a smallish purchase like one memory card.

    You can get 1GB for $24+ship and 2GB for $51+ship, and name brands like Kingston are only a few dollars more.

    Which brand do you suggest?

    How many ds games can usually fit on the 1gb version?
    What about gba games?

    Appreciate your help.

    I ended up getting the Transcend 2gb mini-sd. It came to 54.99 shipped.
    Ill get it in 2 days since I'm in PA.

    They have 5 year warranty which is fine for me.
