    Does anyone know where i can find a decent price for a 16 GB class 6 Micro SDHC card for my AceKard 2i?I have an 8 gig "RIDATA" CLASS 6 sdhc and got super ripped off when i got it for like 50 USD. i have under a gig left and i feel im going to need more space . Also if i have a Normal SD card and put in in the SD CARD SLOT on My DSi can i use it as an expansion for the Micro SDHC once i have akaio up and running? [​IMG]

    Thanks in advance. [​IMG]

    No you can't. The SD Card slot is a DSi mode feature. Since it hasn't been hacked yet, the faster processor, extra ram, camera, sd card slot all cannot be used with homebrew at the moment.

    @ elixirdream

    Arent you a happy camper Lol that sucks . as stated the local store i went to jipped me on the 8 Gig too bad its been over 3 weeks since i got it or id return it. Hmm mayb Radio Shack has the 16 GIG i Seek ?

    EDIT : No go on Radio Shack , But i did keep searching on NewEgg.com and finally found a 16 gig Class 6 Micro Sdhc , Except now i have Two questions

    1st is - Does akaio even support 16 Gig Card support ? im pretty sure i read on the wiki that it does but i figure i ask anyway

    2nd - In the description of the card it says its a RiDATA Lightning Series 16GB Micro SDHC MLC Flash Card . Does anyone Know what the MLC stands for ?

    as soon as those questions are answered ill consider purchasing from NewEgg. Thanks again in advance.

    1. Yes it supports SDHC
    2. Dunno what MLC stands for but I'd stay away from Ridata and stick with quality brands like Sandisk, Transcend, Kingston.

    @ Zero383

    I Know it supposrts SDHC but does akaio have a capacity Limit ? Will it be able to read The 16 Gig Card ?

    Also the only reason im sticking to Ridata is because i have an 8 gig ridata that i currently have in use and i have no complaints and i cant find a decntly Priced NAME brand Miro SDHC that is class 6 at a Decent Price

    It supports whatever highest capacity card you can find, even 32GB.

    OK no wories on my end then . Thanks for the Info ZERO

    I found out what MLC is also , turns out my current SDHC is also MLC


    MLC is a memory element capable of storing multiple bits of information on a single cell. MLC designs have an advantage in terms of density and lower cost of ownership, but their complexity requires further error testing. The enhanced error detection and correction consumes storage capacity slowing the drive performance.

    I think ill Be getting the SDHC from NEWEGG.Com after All . Thanks for all the Help
