    well... if your talking about the micro sd/sdhc card then it should work since ive installed gta:cw but haven't extractred it becuase, my micro sdhc usb stopped working for some wieird reson. Ive got a 8gb micro sdhc from nokia 5800. So the answer is yes, it should work if you etract it using win zip/ win rar

    Sandisk > Kingston

    Kingston's are cheap, that's pretty much it. Every other category, Sandisk is better, hands down. Better build quality and transfer speed. My Class 2 Sandisk has a faster read speed than a Class 6 Kingston and Transcend.

    Hey, that's what I bought!

    A month on and it's STILL NOT FUCKING HERE!!! Well, to tell the truth it did come in 3 or 4 days, but they sent the wong one, I sent it back, and a week after that they email me saying it was the right one in the wrong packaging (yeah, like a big company such as SanDisk woulkd fuck that up). Also, they asked if I'd like them to send it back. Well no, just keep my money, I don't want something I piad for, keep the £20 [​IMG]

    2 weeks has passed since I replied to their email, saying I would like them to send it, still no card. What a mess.

    Anyway, that's nothing to do with memory cards, just where to buy them.

    Just tested TWEWY with all my SanDisk cards, no slow downs, didn't have to open and close the DS to get past the first bit, and got all the way to day 2 with no problems! [​IMG]

    Sandisk / Kingston / Transcend all work in the acekard 2i as long as its original from a good company & not fake memory. i have no slow downs with any of the 3 memory cards here.

    Following on from my rant, I've recived the card. It's still a class 4, and MyMemory still insist that it is just in the wrong packaging. So what I need is some software to tell me the read and write speeds of the card, and the class number. Then I can email the results to MyMemory, get my money back, and buy from a site that doesn't try to scam people.

    So, if anyone knows a good reliable piece of software (preferably free...) that'll tell me the class number of my Micro SD card, I would be very greatful.

    Thanks!

    your moms jeans pocket
    it doesnt depend on what micro sd u have to run a curtain game

    it depends what flash card u have and what firmware

    Wrong.

    Even if you have a good flashcart with the very latest firmware, if you're using a crappy Micro SD card loading times will slow, lag and other general slowdowns will increase.

    I've been using a Class 6 4GB MicroSDHC card for a few months now and I've had no problems until now. A Kingston is what is generally preferred by the majority but I'm guessing that a Sandisk will do the job just as well. Just make sure you don't get fake versions.

    What I really wanted is to hear someone's results AFTER a card change.

    I have a class 6 Transcend 4GB and I have minor lags on Pokemon and GTA, and I'm not sure changing to a Sandisk Mobile Ultra would make much of a difference. I would really like to be certain things would change, but I don't think they will.
