    Sure, I received it 2 days ago in the mail, opened it, plugged it in, and transferred all my games/music/skins etc. About halfway through the transfer, it stopped, asking me to re insert the disk into the drive, and when I tried again, it came up in my explorer as 'Removable Disk' with an unknown format, 0kbs of space.

    What kind of reader were you using? I had that same thing happen to a sandisk card I had. I tried a dozen formatting programs before I found one that worked.

    Turns out I was using a regular SD reader, not SDHC, by SanDisk. May I ask what program you used, so I don't have to buy a new one if I don't have to? Also do you think the fact I used a regular one first might have contributed to this?

    Thats what worked for me. I have 2 AData 4gb cards. I had problems with the Cyclo evo card reader and both versions of the R4 readers. The readers would disconnect randomly, not recognize cards, and freeze during transfers. I have been using a rosewill and a sandisk adapter recently without problem.

    Oh the cyclods reader has problems with SDHC? Oh my. I'll keep that in mind when getting an SDHC in the future, but one thing I'd like to know about these, are there any speed issues, on let's say Class 6 cards, on the cyclo.

    Some people have had troubles with the cyclo micro sd reader and there are threads at the TC forums about it.

    As far as sdhc cards go, I have experienced zero issues on any of the problematic games. I have only used the A-Data class6 4GB micro sdhc card in the Cyclo so I can't compare it to any others.

    I don't think the Cyclo has any problems whatsoever with SDHC cards, I got a defect, and got refunded. I bought a Kingston 4GB SDHC, in the hopes it would be fine. Should be here in 5-6 days.
