    In this review, it says something about the saves I'm wondering about...

    Is this now fixed via a firmware update? Or is this still the same? I'm looking for a card that can play Homebrew really well (playing regular DS ROMs are just a bonus, I'm not into that scene massively) and while the Super Card looks great, that feature really irks me. Having to restart just to save...lame.

    If it isn't fixed, is there another card out there (preferably slot-1 based, but w/e) that will play homebrew exceedingly well?

    EDIT: Come to think of it, are ANY of the features fixed? A lot of them don't sound very user friendly... Why does having to search for a flash card be so difficult T__T

    SC made a patch in february for DSone that addresses those problems i think. Here is the url http://eng.supercard.cn/. Scroll down and read the patch info.

    I should add though, that if you want to play Portrait of Ruin you will need a fast micro sd card. Many recommend ones made in Japan, Kingston, or Toshiba brand. But this isnt just for the Supercard, I have read that R4 owners also need a fast card to play Castlevania.

    I saw that on the Wiki, but thanks for pointing it out nonetheless. Chances are I won't want to play PoR anyway, but I might get a really fast Micro SD Card anyway.

    Are there any decent retailers, that use paypal, that sell Kingston or Toshiba Made in Japan Micro SD cards?

    Did you get the new supercard or the old one. Id be pissed if I got the old one. I have the old one and it works perfectly fine but if I could wait a week to get a new one id wait.
