    I am about to buy a cyclods evolution to replace my ds-x... I was gonna get the 2gb kingston japanese micro sd card, but now i see that i can have the evo shipped with a sandisk 4gb micro sdhc card... my question is, is the sandisk card as fast or faster than the kingston (japan) micro sd card? anyone here tested the sandisk micro sdhc card with troubled games such as castlevania portrait of ruin? any feedback is greatly appreciated... thank-you

    The 4GB sandisk is slower than the 2GB kingston jap, and will freeze in castlevania. So if you REALLY need to play castlevania then get the 2GB.. if you dont care about that one, single game not working properly then get the 4GB and enjoy all that additional storage space [​IMG]

    Avoid Sandisk. Here is a speed list that should help you. http://www.ninjapass.com/Developments.html

    Not to be a whiner, but the word "jap" is considered a racial slur. Please try and spell it out next time. Look: Japanese, Japanese, Japenese. Not so hard.

    Now, in the way of memory cards, the TeamNinja site says that one card's speed is "auto". Any idea what that means?

    Not so much what it means, but that it is racial slur

    So the 2GB Japanese Kingston is the same speed as the 1GB Japanese Kingston?

    If you get your hands on a Class 4 microSDHC, you shouldn't have any problems. I saw some really cheap Class 4 TopRAM 4GB microSDHC cards on ebay recently, and I think toshiba has released their own 4GB range too. Get toshiba if you can, and the card should say class 4 on it.

    I don't think topram has 4GB microSDHC, they probably were just SDHC. Toshiba ones are the fastest though, a test by a member of Moddz confirmed that they were fast, if not faster, than the 1 and 2GB Toshiba.

    ...and while "Jap" may be considered a racial slur in America, this is not the case everywhere. In Australia, jap is used as an abbreviation by most people, including chinese and japanese people. We also use terms like pom, frog, leb, wog quite freely. I think wog still has a tiny bit of stigma attached to it, but many people here use it to describe themselves.. with pride!

    Hmm link doesn't work. I'll search on eBay myself now.

    edit: found it.. very interesting. I'd be willing to put money on the Toshiba being faster

    Unfortunately it looks like the Sandisk 4GB SDHC is a Class 2 device so not the speediest - still better to get a normal microSD for those awkward games and get a SDHC for storage...

    Their 6GB card is class 4, and Toshiba's 4GB is Class 4. It also has speeds on par with the Japanese 1GB cards

    Well, it's not just that one game. If one game freezes on slower card, then there are bound to be future games that will freeze too.

    I would just get the 2GB Kingston(J) for now, and I guess Toshiba is releasing their 8GB(J) pretty soon.
