    Which microSDHC card is better?

    -SanDisk 4GB microSDHC
    -Kingston 4GB MicroSDHC (JAPAN)

    I'm thinking on buying the kingston one from KickGaming, but there's no SD card reader with it. O.O
    I heard that using the reader from M3 real heat up the card. Is it true?

    It depends on what class the cards are. The higher the class, the faster the card. If it doesn't specifically state which class the card is, looks at a picture of the card. The class is usually a number (probably 4 or 6 for these cards) in a big C.

    Sigh... *facepalms....

    There is no such thing as a Class C. I believe the other guy meant it as a "capital".

    There are only Class 2, 4 and 6. Class 6 cards are the fastest.

    Also, A-data 4 gig micro sdhc class 6....

    i don't think for m3real it matters any bit what "class" you have.
    my 4GB sandisk is class2(just found out) but so far it gave no problems, not even on troublesome games like twewy.

    SanDisks are slow. I'd go with the Kingston Japan. As a matter of fact, I have 3 of them for my various flashcarts now [​IMG]

    Yes, yes, sorry..my mistake I didn't end up the whole point what I was going to say..
    M3 Team is suggesting to use SanDisk because they are using it, and theyknow it's not making any problems..But Kingstones ARE FASTER cards and people do like them better..
    I can clarify that SanDisk SDHC 4 GB Class 2 runs perfectly with every game I used (but it's my personal experience and opinion), and it never gave me any problems..But if you can get yourself a faster card, go with it..

    Well, I've never got to play this game, because I don't like it, but as far as I know TWEWY is problematic game for all cards, no?
    I'm just saying that SanDisk never gave me problems in games I was playing..

    i have a sandisk 4GB C2 and never had problems with twewy.
    so either i'm lucky or the freezing is based on something else too.

    Thanx for clearing that up Joe88, I haven't had any problems with my card, even with some games people reported they have..but my statement was partially wrong, so I've fixed my posts [​IMG]..Cheers..

    It's not true, i have also Transcend 4gb Class 6 and it freezes TWEWY too (with m3 real of course). Funny thing is, that on sandisk 2gb - standard (non ultra) it works fine.

    not really, however it breaks quite easily.
    and if it happens while you're using it you might make the microSD card too corrupt to read for windows.(mine lasted a week, luckily i could format the microSD with my phone)

    all microsd readers heat up quickly
    so I wouldnt leave the card in there for long periods
    take it out after your dont

    also buy a different reader now (you gonna need it eventully) after the included one breaks and doesnt even work or corrupt your card
