    Can someone check how long it takes for them to transfer the opera browser file on their DSi to their Memory card?

    I want to know whether its just my SD card thats slow, because iirc it took quite long, maybe even over 30 seconds.

    With a Panasonic 1GB class 2 SD card, it took mine 14 seconds.

    The best way to determine how fast (or slow) your SD is, use a speed checking program.

    There are 2 that I know about that are good:
    HD Tach

    ATTO Benchmark

    I know HD Tach is a free program, but I'm not sure about ATTO.....all I know is that I didn't pay for it. [​IMG]

    HDTach free version tests READ speed only. We're more concerned with WRITE speed in this case. The free program I use is Flash Memory Toolkit. It's free and it does both read and write. http://www.flashmemorytoolkit.com/
