    I was wondering what the best 8GB card for the CycloDS is? The two choices are a Kingston class 4 (unknown country) or a Sandisk class 6 and both are about the same price. Specifically, I want to try to make sure that the Castlevania DoS intro and other demanding games don't lag or crash.

    Buy.com has a SanDisk class 6 8GB microsd for $48.24 with free shipping- i'm thinking about getting it to upgrade from my 4GB card (also, class 6).

    I've found that, for many sites (especially amazon), they don't necessarily specify the class, so you have to enlarge the pictures, etc.

    Hope this helped any!

    You'll be fine. MicroSDHC class ratings don't mean anything when used with a flashcart, wish people would stop with the whole class 2/4/6 bs. [​IMG]

    You're looking at random access times, and even those aren't entirely accurate.
