    posted this in the FAQ yet no responses, will try it again out in the open. :]


    What is the current best Micro SD card of choice for the R4DS?

    Seen this one on offer:

    Kingston 2gb Micro SD
    Assembled in Japan
    model number is: SDC/2GBFE

    Anyone have any experience with this, and if it can run Castlevania PoR?

    Thanks a lot guys, sure these questions get annoying yet couldn't find any recent chatter on the subject.

    According to the M3 Wiki:

    * Kingston 1GB - Made In Japan (FAT32)
    o WORKS with Firmware 1.00/1.01/1.02
    o Castlevania Test : 5 of 5

    * Kingston 2GB - Made In Japan (Factory format)
    o WORKS with Firmware 1.06
    o Castlevania Test : 5 of 5
    o No freezes in Castlevania Portrait of Ruin

    I have this card myself but have PoR on it...I did try PoR on my 1Gig PNY and it worked flawlessly though [​IMG]

    Depends on the card you are using. It freezes very rarely with the R4 (so it is completely playable as long as you don't rush into the things that freeze the game (eg.. rushing into the portal before the stone animation is finished)

    hmm, only played the fist DS Castlevania, so I'll look out for this stone animation...

    Thinking I'm just going to go with the 2gb Kingston, assembled in Japan.

    also...

    does a larger memory mean a slower card?

    Hence a 1 gb being faster than a 2gb?
