    I've been planning to get a flashkart in awhile, but I've cut it down to Edgem cyclo, and the SCDS One SDHC. Since I'm getting an 8 gig Micro sdhc (class 4), would that be fast enough to run games smoothly on the Supercard? Thx.

    Yes it would. I have an 8GB Sandisk Class 4, and it works perfectly on the DSOne SDHC

    You MAY still have problems with freezing in Castlevania Portrait of Ruin and some of the other problems games(only one or two of them AFAIK).

    Everything else should run just fine though.

    (ANY flash cart would have problems with the problem games when run from that 8GB card, as it's random access latency is a birderline what those games tolerate. The absolute best SDHC uSD from all of the testing done, is the A-Data 4GB uSDHC.)

    Thx for the info, but I cannot find an A-data microsdhc in Canada. I've tried finding it on Ebay, but they were from China, so I couldn't trust them. The only thing I could find was Sandisk's.

    Just a quick question while on the topic. Is the Supercard DSOne compatible with the EZflash 3 in 1 so I can play GBA games, have extra RAM and rumble?

    It is, but you need to patch some stuff, probably. I'm not too sure, but that's what someone told me before.

    Tigerdirect.com used to carry the A-Data 4GB SDHC uSD card, but they were a little more expensive than newegg (c. $30 IIRC), but they had the added benefit of shipping to Canada...

    Thx for the info, but I'll still go with the Sandisk 8 gig instead. It's only about 20 dollars difference, but much more space. I'm not too interested in Castlevania either, so I shouldn't really run into any problems.

    Another thing about the 3in1, just use Rudolph's homberew app. You may as well use his new version, Rudolph's ExpLoader app. To active RAM or Rumble(don't recall if I actually tested this or not), just go to the 3rd page of Rudolph's app and you'll have a selection of Low/Med/High Rumble or RAM Expansion Pack. Just pick one, the app will soft-reset the DS, then just run the Opera browser ROM(no patching needed, I've tested this) or some rumble enabled ROM/app and it should just work with no patching necessary.

    [EDIT]
    Sandisk 8GB SDHC, Castlevania was just one of the problematic ROMs, and I don't recall offhand what the other one was. But, like I mentioned before most other things should work fine and the problem ROMs MAY even run fine from the Sandisk as I've seen some unverified reports that they DO work with the Sandisk. Might be nice to test them, and make a post somewhere and/or maybe start a uSD SDHC testing thread in the parent forum here...

    Yeah, but the DSTT doesn't have features like real time guide, real time save, and homebrew soft reset. So for these features alone(along with SDHC) I think the original poster is making the right choice. Although the DSTT's loader is faster than the SCDS1's by a couple seconds.

    If you did, then you wouldn't value the DSTT for its SDHC since pretty much all slot-1 flashcarts have support for that now.

    Well, not all. Like the r4ds.
    I ordered one a couple weeks ago and is still waiting for it. I got it at dealextreme for $33 and something. It was a price mistake becasue the price for one each is 33 if you buy like 5 or more. But they fixed the price now.

    At this point in time, the R4 should be considered an outdated cart. Pretty much all competing carts are superior in more than a few ways, and it looks like the R4 Team has no intentions of trying to change that.
