    I finally got myself a Cyclo Evo after living in the stonageses with my G6 lite for years. I have done a lot of reading and can not seem to find the simple answer i want. So i pose this question to my fellow tempers. I want a 8 gig card to go with my Evo. I want it to have a fast Access time (0.7ms or less) so i never have to worry about crashes. If you all would be so kind to point me in the correct direction to said item i would be highly appreciative. Links to the product and any stats are also appreciated.

    the only problem with high access time card = POTR. no problem with other games.
    I tried sandisk 4GB (1.3ms), toshiba 8GB japan (0.9ms)

    I know there is a class 6 but i worry about the access times. Does the class 6 also run POR perfect.

    Edit: Just found a SanDisk 8GB Micro SDHC Ultra II at best buy for $30. I may just try that.

    Higher class just means that thats the minimum write speed.

    I mirror this. Been perfect so far.

    I did format it with Panasonic SD formating tool before using it though.
