    I have a CycloDS (black) and a 8GB Class 2 SDHC SD-card. I have firmware 2.3 and when I play Pokémon Pearl (USA) it is realy slow. I tried to re-format my SD-card too FAT32 and it helped a little bit. But it is still slow. Then I thought it was my SD-card but when I play Metroid Prime Hunters or Bomberman or any other game, I have no lag at all! So I don't know if this is a bug (in the firmware) or it is just my SD-card.

    O, I also formated my SD-card with Panasonic SD formater. And it is a little bit faster, but still slow [​IMG]

    Thanks for helping

    PS: sorry for bad English [​IMG]

    So, as I understand my SD-card is not working properly? And to fix this I need to buy an new one (with a better class?).

    You are definetely out of luck I am afraid. If you really need 8GB memory, go for a class 4 or class 6 instead.
    Alternatively, get a 2GB kingston and enjoy everything at full speed [​IMG]!

    I already have a 2GB Kingston, but I want my games, .dpg-files and mp3's on one SD-card. I guess I need to buy an new one, with a higher class......

    Class is write speed, not read speed.

    That may be true, but higher classes still run faster. I compared my Class 2 8GB Kingston to my Class 4 8GB Kingston and the latter ran much faster.

    I have a 1GB Hama microSD card. There is a circle with a "17" in there. What class does my card have?

    It's probably just a coïncidence that your higher class happens to be one that runs faster.

    You probably have a defective or faked Sandisk.

    Cause I own a Sandisk 16GB Class 2 and its reading speed is faster than Kingston 4GB Class 4.

    I run Pokemon Diamond and Platinum without any lag.
