    Aidan James go to "my controls" near the top of the page then "Edit Profile info" on the left panel. Then "Country
    Where do you live?"

    So, if you folks have the Japan versions and there ok then I guess getting either one would be fine... [​IMG]

    Yeah from what i've read in various places, apparently the Japanese 2GB Kingston is probably one of the best.

    That's what the Japanese 2GB kingston looks like from China, you can check if it's made in Japan on the back of the actual SD card.

    Format it right and most cards work perfectly. Comparing my Sandiscs/Taiwan Kingstons etc versus my Jap Kingston showed no difference.

    D-an-W, my apologies, mine is actually made by sandisk but i've read of a few rumbelings about kingston (take it for what it's worth). most of my removable media is made by sandisk. again, i assure you, you will expirience no lag whatsoever. picture here: http://s236.photobucket.com/albums/ff75/Ai...10112007237.jpg . Lee79, thanks for that mate [​IMG]

    Play.com are offering Sandisc 2GB at 12.99 at the moment.

    My 2GB Kingston JAPAN Micro SD arrived today and so far I can't make it crash in PoR (U) using the save that's floating about on here. I formatted it using the Panasonic utility (FAT & 32k Clusters), it is slightly smaller than the Sandisk one, 1.87GB v 1.89GB but that's not a problem really.

    Thanks for everyone's help... [​IMG]
