    Hi everyone, im new here, and I tried searching, really I did. So I apologize in advance if this has been posted before...

    My R4 should be hitting me anytime soon, I got it from realhotstuff.com with a 2gb sandisk microSD card.

    My question is, does the manufacturer of the SD card make a difference? I remember reading that some games wont boot with types that aren't kingston? Castlevania I beleive it was.

    If some people can shed light on the subject, id greatly appreciate it.

    Cant wait to get my R4 and start having fun!!! [​IMG]

    Once again, I sincerely apologize if this is a repost. Flame if you must [​IMG]

    I hope I didnt just waste my money getting the Sandisk bundle. Are they known to cause problems?

    I don't think so. There is an ARM7 patch for I think Zelda. But I don't think that there is any for Castelvania.

    There is a thread in this section that discusses the ARM7 patch. I didn't read it yet. I don't have Zelda. But you may want to check it out.

    Format your Sandisk in FAT32 + 64k Clusters.

    Castlevania: PoR will run perfectly or with minor problems.

    ~Good Luck.
