    Ever since getting my Acekard2i and 4GB Micro SDHC card I've noticed that, write speed especially, is much slower than it was on my R4 with a 2GB SD card. I think it might be the classification of the cards, but I don't know anyway to verify without a lengthy process of reformatting the 2GB SD card and setting it up for use in the Acekard2i. See I know my 4GB card is a class 4, which seemed reasonable to me, but I have no idea what class my 2GB card is.

    Is it something with the Acekard2i having generally slower writing speeds, or would buying a higher classification SD card fix the problem?

    Where does it seem the slowest? Creating saves, pasting, deleting?

    From what you said it seems like reformatting your microsd card should fix the problem. Whenever you format it, however, choose FAT16 formatting and see if that fixes the problems.

    Why would you need to reformat the 2GB card?

    The R4 and Acekard software can both live on the same MicroSD card.

    Also make sure you are using AKAIO 1.7, yellow DMA mode is faster.

    It seems to slowest when it's writing data back to the card(saving).

    Also, reformatting probably wasn't the right word, I just used to to sum up the fact that I switched stuff around.

    And yes I've tried traditional reformatting and it hasn't done anything for me.

    It could be that the 4GB microsd card is a clone/fake card.

    How do you have a cloned/fake SD card?

    So is the solution then to just buy a new MicroSD card from the store? What's a good brand to go with?
