    They should work fine with any cart that requires a mSD.

    Yeah.

    I ordered several, one of them was a Taiwan.

    It wont matter with a modern flashcart, except for one or two games.

    It all worked out though, she performs very well!

    Grasp them firmly in your hand.

    *On topic*

    Kingston said that the only REAL difference between the Japanese and Taiwan is the location in which they were made.

    So do the locations of manufacture actually matter, except for a few games (back in the day, I recall there only being problems with the Castlevania games)?

    Yeah, well....of course they will SAY that, but it's been proven that Taiwan cards are slower.

    Like everyone else said though, only a couple games will have an issue with it. Castlevania: POR for instance is one that will likely freeze up on you. My nephew has a slow Transcend microSD and except for the few problem games, it runs everything else just fine, so....no worries.

    got a link to the ones you get?? they dont mention where it's from so I thought they'd be the american ones, and not the japanese ones. But I want to get some now if they're from japan and so cheap

    You're only going to run into troubles as far as I know (potentially) with 3 games, both Castlevania games and the newer Tony Hawk games. If you aren't concerned with those games, you're good to go.
