    When I was playing Tales of Inoccence, I noticed that the game randomly froze up at the worst time possible making me lose a lot of progress, at first I didn't made a big deal out of it since I didn't lose much but then I noticed that the froze-ups were a lot more frequent (more or less in interlaps of 1 hour and a half or so) and then it FUCKING FROZE UP AFTER I DEFEATED THE FINAL BOSS:hateit: (and man that boss was TOUGH) I did eventually beat that boss again but still...

    Do you have any idea on why this keeps happening? :unsure:

    Perhaps your SD card is too slow? I recommend a class 10, they are still cheap.

    Class 6 is more than sufficient. The transfer limits between DS and supercard won't make it go any faster with a class 10 card.
    Usually this problem occurs with cheap class 2 mSD cards.
    I recommend class 6 transcend cards since I've owned about 4 of them and none ever had any problems.

    Have you tried running it in clean mode? Nearly all games should work fine in patch mode but you never know.
    Maybe try a different MicroSD?
    It could be a contact issue but those aren't very common with the DSTWO.
    How new is your DSTWO? There were problems with a recent batch that were very similar to a contact issue, and there's nothing that can be done about those problems apart from a RMA.

    Flashcarts rely more on read speed than write speed, which is always much higher than the class requirement. I've tested some Kingston cards to give 14MB/s read speed, which should be more than sufficient.
    I've heard it's in fact slower with higher class cards, so it shouldn't be an issue.

    Class 4 or 6 is more than enough I find

    All of my cards are Class 4, which work flawlessly... I don't know what else he could do, besides using a clean, untrimmed ROM for the game(s) that lock up and freeze.
