    I have found several Micro SD cards, but i am curius if they work well on flash card solutions like M3 or R4

    They are:
    1. SanDisk Ultra II Mobile (does this work, and is it better speed then the others?)
    2. SanDisk 2 GB Micro (is this better than the kingston?)
    3. Kingston 2 GB Micro

    Which should i choose and why?

    Ultra II is best, its designed to with stand extreme heat, cold & such
    pretty much is a heavy duty card

    people swear by kingston Japan, but the games with problems on R4, have the issues on both brands

    Kingston Japan 1gb hasn't missed a beat in my R4 yet. I haven't had any issues whatsoever, so make of that what you will [​IMG]

    My initial thought also went on the sandisk ultra 2.

    I think that's the one i will go for [​IMG]

    I honestly think that it is the speed of the card and not the brand of the card that matters,

    I have a 1gb Photofast microsd card made in taiwan...a pretty no name brand, but with a stated speed rating of 25.5MB/s (best) (which i havent measured yet) but everything i have ran so far without lag, including Castlevania POR and all the Tony Hawks

    edit:
    so yeah, if u are choosing a 2gb, ultra 2 would be the faster one...

    I have a cheap A-Data Super 1G and have no problems with it.
