Well, I finally received my new revised ( more like repackaged) SCDS 1. So what's the big improvement: 1. The packaging looks great 2. The build quality is much better 3. It comes with a card reader. From what I can see, those are the only improvements to the new (version 2) SCDS 1. It still uses the same old firmware and they still have not addressed the SCDS 1's main problem; it's still picky with micro sd that you use. I tried a kingston (Taiwan) micro sd and it's still had the same problems ( It is too slow! SC DS will not support it!). It still works great if you use a made in Japan micro sd. To sum it up, the new revised SCDS 1 was just a repackaged and cosmetically improved old SCDS 1. I can't recommend this card to anybody anymore, the EZ- flash V and the R4\M3 DS are just better slot 1 solutions.
