    Had a supercard ds 1 for about 1 month, hate, most games don't seem to work with my sandisk 512. Just got a RDS and everything I have put at it has worked. My question is should I hang on too it until a better firmware is released or just sell it.

    thanks

    The supercard team should fix the firmware eventually so the supercard works as well as the rest. I've always swarn by supercard and had the supercard SD since it first came out. I've also had the mini and the lite. This time I decided to buy the R4 because it was more compatable and I prefered the save on it (No messing around to find out the save type on new games).

    The R4 was cheaper as well, the main reason I got the supercard slot 2 in the first place. This time I feel like the supercard team are relying on the fans of their slot 2 product to buy the slot 1 card.

    Let's put it this way... you're saying that it sucks, and you wanna sell it, which probably means you'll probably take a loss on it.

    OR

    You could keep it, see if it gets better. If it does, then you get to have a better card to use. If you're still happy with the r4, you can still sell the scds, but it'll be better, which should increase the resale value.

    What do the others do that the SCDS doesn't? What's broken?

    Yeah, if you check the comparison chart on GBATemp's review of the SCDS(One) you'll find that the Sandisk 512 pretty much sucks. On the bright side, you can use that chart to buy a new, more compatible one! [​IMG]

    If you want the SCDS to run all the games good, you are gonna have to get a SD-CO1G made in japan micro sd ( kingston, toshiba, or PNY).

    Just to manage expectations here, I have a genuine Tosh SC-C01G, works fine in a PC with good benchmarks, but it won't even boot in my SC-DS1. A Sandisk 512 non ultra works, but with a lot of slowdown.

    I have no idea if there's variability in individual Supercards, in the MicroSDs, or what..... All I know is that the two don't work together. The Tosh works 100% fine in my R4DS.

    Your mileage may vary, but bear in mind that there seem to be no guarantees with the DS1.....

    I have an scdsone and I would highly reccomend it to anyone. I think it's an absolutely fantastic card. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    What an appropriate username then supercard_lover, I too have a SC One or a scone as they are often called. Its great, works like a charm and best of it was alot cheaper than buying an R4 at the time.

    I used to love Supercard brand when i heard and saw all the SCDS crap then i decided to go with R4DS and i dont regret for a second as i could not imag myself entering savetypes for every new games [​IMG]

    Don't get me wrong i used to own SCCF and still own SCLite but apart from sexy GUI card is pretty rubbish (in my opion).

    Speaking of SCDS GUI *hoping someone hacks SCDS firmware so we can use on SCLite*
