    Is it any good? I bought one, a sandisk 2g now I dunno if I made a good decision. I hear it is slow with certain games and is just crappy, is this true? And I keep hearing I should buy a kingston one instead...really is there a huge difference with which Mircro sd card you use with your r4? Am I gonna hate this sandisk?

    No. Only two games (or 3) games where it will slow down and freeze. Castlevania: POR and Tony Hawk: DJ, possibly the earlier one (American Sk8terland [​IMG])

    works perfectly fine, only probs are related to r4 itself

    I have a 1gb sandisk micro sd, I also have a question.

    Whats better a 1gb Kingston Japan or 1gb Sandisk micro sd's.

    EDIT: To be used with an R4 (as soon as i get it, damn air mail)

    I have the kingston 1GB and recently got the Sandisk 2GB (had to since it was only $15 shipped from buy.com). I havn't seen any problems with the 2gb besides with POR

    kingston has life time warranty
    sandisk has 5 years

    but they have no difference on r4, just they do on older dodgy slot cards

    Well that's a relief thanks for the replies. So there's no patch or anything to get this catlevania game to run properly on sandisks? I'm not really interested in that game but just wondering.

    If it's that necessary - buy it. Supposedly a patch which removes most of the sound can reduce the likelihood of freezing

    it even freezes/slows down on the original, real flash cart. so its not a problem with the R4 or stick really.
