    NDS CycloDS Evolution Supports MicroSDHC

    News from Team Cyclops

    Today heralds the unveiling of CycloDS Evolutionís surprise hardware feature Ė support for MicroSDHC memory cards!

    MicroSDHC (SD High Capacity) is the new standard for compact flash memory cards which offers far greater capacity than traditional MicroSD memory cards. Whilst the maximum capacity supported by traditional MicroSD is a mere 2gigabytes, MicroSDHC supports up to a mammoth 32gigabytes. CycloDS Evolution breaks the memory capacity barrier by being first NDS flash cart to implement support for MicroSDHC cards. Furthermore, MicroSDHC cards are not backwards compatible so any device not designed specifically to support MicroSDHC will not be able to take advantage of these new high capacity cards.

    Given that SDHC is a new technology, you may be wondering what the importance of the new generationís cards will be now and in the future. We all know that flash memory prices tumble quickly, and thatís why itís imperative to buy a flash cart which supports the new SDHC standard. Whilst 2GB cards have been the staple diet of users for the last few months, the pricing has plummeted. This trend will move over to larger size cards, which means that 4 GB cards may end up having the same pricing of 2GB cards in a few months. If the flash cart you choose does not support SDHC then youíll be stuck with purchasing 2 GB or smaller memory devices. This means in the end poor value for money. Given the great success of NDS and its ever expanding library of titles, memory storage value for money becomes ever more important as your list of favourites grows by the week. Having several SD cards becomes a nuisance and very impractical.

    MicroSDHC cards are currently available as 4GB for now, with higher capacity cards expected in the near future.

    Buy CycloDS Evolution

    Ditto. So am I correct in understanding that supercard slot 1 will never work with these? Ive been pleased with my supercard lite and am looking for a slot 1 device so I can have death star in my hand lol.

    Pew, I thought MicroSD was up to 4GB, good thing I read up on this. So at the moment the CycloDS Evolution is the only device capable of this new technology? ...wanted to get me a R4 or m3 Simply (already seen the CycloDS), but now this has emerged, I'll just wait another month to check if other brands are following. Good post!

    This is pretty interesting 1GB is enough for me right now, but maybe in the future I will need 4 or more who knows, Im willing to ditch my M3 and get this one. Now all I need is to find a site that ships them to PR without charging an arm and a leg

    i'm just gonna stick wif me old R4.

    i mean, just buy more memory cards. i'm pretty sure it'd be more cost efficient too. 4 1GB microSD's are probably cheaper than 1 MicroSDHC.

    maybe some'll prefer more expensive but have just 1 memory card but i'm willing to just buy more than 1 memory card.
