    I read somewhere that internal firmware should mean the cart could support SDHC. Maybe this is what the SuperCard Team are trying to achieve.

    Thats if they make new firmware for it Sam. They would also put that as a major feature. I upgraded and didn't notice anything different though [​IMG]

    Maybe they have made the jump to internal firmware so they can add this feature in the future... Who knows...? Maybe someone could ask the SuperCard Team if they have any intentions of adding SDHC support
