    hey guys
    kiafazool here with yet another question wandering my head?
    which r4's work with wood r4 and have sdhc support meaning that a r4 clone compatible with sdhc?
    why wouldn't i just get a r4 you ask because if i buy a r4 even if its $3 i would have to go around looking for a microsd card compatible with it?
    and why i want to get a r4 compatible with sdhc because i have an extra 4gb microsdhc card and have no use for it?
    why would i go around looking for a 2gb microsd card when i have a 4gb microsdhc card
    what i want is a cheap r4 sdhc which is a direct clone of a r4 (actually all r4's compatible of wood are clones now)
    i looked around on priceangels to find a r4sdhc (the direct clone of r4) that people say is compatible with wood?
    help is greatly appreciated

    Just genuine R4's and 1:1 clones. Anything that says SDHC will not work.

    Simple, none.

    Wood only works on the original R4, or 1:1 clones of the original R4.

    There's a thread on here where people were trying to get it work on the R4-SDHC, but they have up and that thread is locked. You also so many different R4-SDHC clones, their task is difficult.

    No R4 SDHC is compatible with Wood R4.
    This is a Wood R4 for clones, but it's outdated.

    No, the R4 hardware (or 1:1clones) just isn't built for SDHC.

    1. A microSD slot is no different than a microSDHC slot. It's the hardware that reads the microSD that's incompatible with the SDHC.
    2. Just buy a Acekard 2i.
    3. Amazon?

    Where intellect matters
    Just as a quick note, it wouldn't matter if you got it working on an SDHC clone anyways since Wood R4 doesn't support SDHC (there's a beta hacked version for the M3 I got to test and it didn't work for me because I only had an SDHC card).

    should someone who has a ak2i worry about getting a r4?
    should someone who has akaio get wood?

    Do you expect an acekard to break so soon? I've had mine for a year no problem. My answer is maybe though. [​IMG]

    the cheapest i can find is $3.30 for an r4 and $4.04 for a 512mb micro sd

    both shipped and i HIGHLY doubt you can find cheaper.

    Given the guys who make it are part of the same team, if you really want a backup in case the software stops getting made, maybe try another card entirely. Supercard, or M3, or Cyclo.

    Get a different card(not ak or r4) if you're so insecure about that

    Your mamas house
    I don`t think your going to find any microsd cards for $3 (even 512mb or 1gb, if thats even possible these days). If your in TO then try a local computer shop or similar $8-9) Forget the flea markets or the big box stores (I`ve checked)
