    I recently bought two Supercard DSOnes. One of them is reporting "psram" errors and locking up constantly, while the other one doesn't report errors, yet still occasionally locks up during games. Should I just exchange the card for a new one in hopes that it will be error-free? Otherwise, what is the most reliable card one can buy? Is the CycloDS really any more reliable?

    exchange them if it is of reasonable (or zero) cost to you.

    and with regards to compatibility, I suggest getting a DSTT or M3.

    As with Cyclods, I am pretty poor so I can't imagine paying so much for a card when cheaper ones are available. However, money is of no issue, Cyclods is a great choice as well.

    If the 2nd one reports no psram errors, it is probably caused by your microsd cards.

    The SCDS is appearing to have a faulty batch or something, as I've seen a lot more PSRAM error reports than usual. For the past several months up until now it's been a fairly reliable card.

    Cyclods is an awesome flashcart but the cost is the only problem. DSTT and Acekard 2 are very cheap and they are really good.I suggest you exchange or replace your supercard DSones with either of these flashcarts.You won't regret it.

    Hmmm, if you have the money, go for CycloDS.....I really think you won't regret it!
    But my suggestion would be M3 Real or AceKard2 as well!!

    Why wouldn't you recommend M3?! I mean, I'm just curious [​IMG]

    Most Reliable Card is the cyclo ds evo.
    But if your looking for cheaper the Edge is the same as cyclo ds evo (Know as the cyclo clone).
    with more battery life

    edge, acekard, cyclo all seem the most reliable, but all cards will have a failure rate, just like all electronic products (especially those assembled by 5 year olds in china)
