    Hi! Thanks for a great website!

    I am about to order a new memorycard for my Supercard SD. I currently have 3*256MB (standard speed?) Secure Digital cards.

    I am tired of swapping these cards, so I will buy me a new bigger one.

    The one I've been looking at is "TwinMOS Secure Digital 2048MB, 150X, Ultra-X, 17/22.5MB Write/read speed"

    Is it compatible with Supercard? And will games like Resident Evil and Metroid run more smooth with this faster card?

    And one final question: What is the (if any) size limit of Secure Digitals cards the Supercard is currently supporting?

    Please give me your thoughts about this.

    I have heard of 4GB SD working on the SC SD but the official supported size is 2GB.

    They make great memory so I suggest buying that SD.

    Also the faster card will improve lag and slowdown.

    Ok sounds great, thanks for the fast reply. I think this 2GB will do just fine [​IMG]

    The price for the card is around US$50.

    22.5MB read speed, it says.

    Does anyone know how fast read speed is supported by the Supercard/DS-Lite?

    I don't think anyone knows the exact speed but users with normal SanDisk 12X miniSD/SD have much worse performance than users with a 60X and higher miniSD/SD.

    I think the speed difference stops around 80X and it’s hard to tell an 80X vs. 150X. However access times also play a big role in card speeds and I always suggest buying name brand memory as cheaper cards may have a high write speed but slow access times which will lag you out.

    I suggest a name brand miniSD/SD at least 60-80X or higher for best performance and compatibility.

    It's not read speed that you need to worry about, but the access time!
