    really any card should work. i bought a 4GB no name card from a grocery store that works fine. just make sure to format the card with the Panasonic SD Formatter. I think the name of it has changed fairly recently but google is your friend.

    Yes it will work.

    If you have not bought it yet... I'd suggest making sure it's a Class 6 or at least a Class 4.
    Class 2 (and some Class 4) take a while to load/save games.

    Also, make sure you're buying from a reputable place. A lot of the big name MicroSD/SDHC cards have counterfeits that are poorly made.

    A Sandisk will work, as long as it's not fake. Sandisk/ Kingston cards are the fakers favourites. I have a fake Sandisk... good job it was only 99p.

    SanDisk or any other brand of card, really, will work as long as the stated capacity is true (meaning as long as its not fake). Use the SD Formatter to format the card instead of your OS; the SD Formatter formats the card in such an architecture that it performs faster in terms of speed.

    Size really isn't a good way to verify if a card is real or fake...


    The quality of the printing, the quality of the card and the read/write speeds are better indicators.
    I'd say that the read/write speed matching what the class specification is would be the best.

    You're taking what he said out of context.

    He means for example a 32MB MicroSD card which has been hacked so it identifes itself to the device as 1GB. If a MicroSD card says it's 4GB and it's size is 4,000,000,000 based on the way they way the maker represents. I too believe they should use computing capacities, but they wouldn't pass up an opportunity to make their storage devices seem bigger than they are.

    Easiest way not to get a fake? buy from a trusted retailer.

    I've never heard of that happening... then again, I've never bought a fake.
    I always buy from retail stores or Newegg.com


    Also, I didn't mean to change my post to omit or change my meaning.
    I just figured it would be best to skip all the jargon that's worthless [​IMG]

    any microsd will work with any flashcart. the difference would be the read/write speed.

    Happens all the time on both memory cards and flash drives, especially those from Amazon marketplace or eBay. I know for USB flash drives, you can download a tool which can change the capacity and can even tell you the maker/ model of the memory chips.
