    Sandisk 4GB MicroSDHC are £39.99:
    HERE AND HERE

    If I buy one they ARE going to work on the CycloDS right?

    well there's no reason why it shouldn't work.
    It was officially announced that the CycloDS Evo supports Micro SDHC.
    So yeah, it should work. If it doesn't, post it here and we'll talk to the cyclops team.

    That's great! I'm gonna get one and try it out [​IMG] I'll report back once it comes.

    I think £39.99 is a pretty good price too.

    Yeah, please let us know how fast it is. Do some testing with PoR, and see if it locks up in the usual spots. That's the only reason why I'm reluctant to get one, I don't know if they're any good or not. I mean, they're Sandisk.

    I got a Sandisk 4gb MicroSDHC and a CycloDS earlier this week. It seems to work so far, although I haven't tried Castlevania:PoR yet.

    It came with a usb reader as well so I haven't tried it with the reader that came with the CycloDS.

    No they will not work on the R4 or M3 because they do not support SDHC cards.

    My 4gb micro SDHC will be coming in today, so I'll test it out on my cyclods evo and post my results later on today.

    My 4gb micro SDHC came in today and I've been testing it with my cyclods evo.

    [​IMG]

    Yes, the card reader that comes with the cyclods evo are SDHC compatible. With the 4gb micro sd I tried Castlevania DoS (it played the intro perfectly), Castlevania PoR ( I played it for 1 hr straight and it did not freeze at all, including the portals and talking to Wind), and pokemon pearl (works fine, no wii connection). There was also no slowdowns in the other games that I tried so far.

    I do have to say that 4gb is too much. I currently have 70 untrimmed DS roms with saves in the card and I still have over a gig left on the card. A cyclods evo plus a 4gb micro sd equals to an expensive but amazing combo.

    Yes, I tried to put it in my R4. It doesn't work with the R4.

    Here's my big question... With 70 untrimmed games on there, was there any longer time to load the menu or anything, because if not... I think I see what my next Slot-1 device is to replace the DS-X.

    I have a mp3 player for music and a laptop for movies. No need to put that stuff in my Cyclods evo.
