    MicroSD Reader

    I'm trying to play games with a Kingston 8gb microSD card through the USB reader that came with my CycloDS. For the most part it works alright but sometimes it forces a crapout and I'm not sure why. For example, I allowed the intro to A Boy and His Blob to play through but it crashed after it finished, and just now I was playing Tatsunoko vs Capcom, and after a 15 minute practice session it crapped out when I went to change character.

    My only theory is that if for some reason it doesn't read from the card the reader powers down and takes JUST a little too long to power up. Any other theories/alternatives?

    Thanks

    Try to load a game on a standard 2gb sd card and if that works then you know that it's the 8gb micro.... If it does not work then you have bad rips of the games...

    It was the reader. I acquired a different reader and with the same card it works flawlessly.

    most of those readers that come with the flashcarts are not even worth attempting to use, they are truly awful!
