    I'm getting a SuperCard DS in a few days, and i already got a TwinMOS 1GB MicroSD card to use with it, formatted it to FAT16 and stuffed it full of roms and homebrew.
    Does anyone have any experience with TwinMOS cards in SuperCard DS? Does it work well?

    You could always run a test on the memory card with hdtach to see the read speeds to get a hint at how it will perform.

    Ok, thanks for the tip. I'll try that.
    EDIT: I got a average read speed of 1,5MB/s and a 1,9MB/s burst speed.
    EDIT2: I just re-ran the test. This time i got a average read speed of 1,8MB/s and a 2,1MB/s burst speed.

    The speed sounds a little wrong though, on the site i bought it from it said 10MB/8MB R/W.
    EDIT: I was right, i tried now with a USB-card reader instead of the built-in one in my laptop, and i got approx.9MB/s read speed.
