    I've wanted the iPlayer since I first learned of its existance. But now that it has a slot 1 GBA emulator I want it even more. (Love my DSi, can't go back to DSL)

    So is there best card for use with this device? I'd like at least 8GB. Also does anyone know if card size, speed, whatever, effect video or emulation performance?

    Thanks

    A lot of people use Kingstons for their MicroSD cards. Although pretty much anything that isn't a knockoff (aka anything you can buy at your local Wal-Mart/Best Buy) will work.

    Slower cards can cause some game cutscenes to stutter but most newer cards don't have that problem. And the movies play fine because the usual bitrate is much lower that the card's read speed, so you won't notice any difference. The only problem of slower cards is that it takes fucking hours to copy your files to it, aaarrgh [​IMG]

    Kingstons or any class 6 is fine. Just stay away from sandisk.

    There's nothing wrong with SanDisk, just don't buy any unbranded cards, or you risk getting something crappy.
