    Kingston just doesn't freeze on Castlevania. That's one difference.

    I really wish people would search. I feel I, alone, have answered this question dozens of times.

    Anyways, the best on the market for R4 are the Kingston Japanese made 1GB cards.

    Nope, it won't one bit.

    The Download Play compatibility is completely dependent on the Flashcart.

    The only thing the type of microSD affects is the read/write speed and compatibility for more taxing games like Castlevania:PoR.

    And Tony Hawk's: Downhill Jam

    No MicroSD really plays that game perfectly. If you get a good one, it would speed it up.

    THAT was the other one! I knew there was one more messed up game, but I couldn't remember which one. Do carts with internal NAND memory play Downhill Jam well?

    It probably already has been answered also, but seeing as this thread is up...why particularly 1gb cards made by kingston? whats wrong with the 2gb ones they make?

    I was just about to ask that exact same question. I have the 2 gb version and I have not had an issue with it. The only thing I can think of is it would become more fragmented but that is an easy fix... defrag it.

    2gb cards traditionally have slower access times. Not sure if this is still the case.
