    Hi y'all, I'm thinking about upgrading to a cyclods from my old n-card, and was wondering a few things.


    1. Is there a difference between the Black and White versions of the card? I heard the Micro SD card sticks out on the black but not the white, is this true? I have a Black DS Lite and would like the colors to match.

    2. I was thinking about buying a 4GB A-Data SDHC card for my Cyclo, will it be able to read the SDHC, or will I have to settle for a regular SD card? Is A-Data a trusted brand(I want games like PoR to work nicely).

    3. The most important thing for me is, will it work on OSX? I had to dig my old PC out of my attic in order for my n-card to work, and the transfer speeds were sub-par.

    One last thing is 51.99 US Dollars a good price for one, if not could someone please link me to a cheaper one?



    Thanks in advance

    1. They're pretty much the same. The card stick out by about a mm or less. So it's nothing big.

    2. It will work with SDHC. A-Data is a pretty good rebrand of the Toshiba cards. It'll work fine with POR.

    3. Yes, it will work with OSX. There are not device drivers needed for the CycloDS.

    1. I believe it's true. But it doesn't stick out ALOT. My dad has a black one. I've got a white one from the first versoins.

    2. Yep. I'm sporting a 4GB Japan-made kingston myself. It freezes up on Portrait of Ruin, though. But I like Dawn of Sorrow better, anyways.

    3. I'm not entirely sure. Whatever can read microSD cards should be fine.

    And yes, 51.99 is a good price.
    Actually, that's cheaper than what I paid for mine, I think!

    It's not out fault if we double-post. GBAtemp has frequent MySQL errors and lag, and that's to blame.
