What size memory card did you go with?
« on: October 17, 2009, 04:16:06 pm »
I'm curious to find this out. I haven't ordered my card yet and I'm looking for some info. Officially they say that only up to 8 gb cards work on the Dingoo. Unofficially I've heard some people are using 16 gb cards. For that matter what Class speed are you using and how well do you feel it works with your system?

I'm currently using Class 4 4Gb SDHC Kingston which is fine.

It was the cheapest option for me at the time.

I will be getting an 8Gb soon though as they seem to be the best value for money. Two 8Gb cards seems to be cheaper than one 16Gb card.

Micro SD with Mini adapter of course.

I?m using a SanDisk microSDHC Class 2 8GB card and I am very pleased with it. Never run into Problems with it.

I got a 8gb class 6 adata kit from here: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820211342
It was only $16.99 plus $2 ship when I got it, but it looks like the price fluctuates a bit.

It works flawlessly, I was impressed.  It has very fast transfer but I think the dingoo limits speeds to class 4.  I use a usb adapter to transfer files.  It's much quicker.

I understand that the Dingoo only uses usb 1.1.

I went with a Class 6 8GB Kingston microSD card (plugged into a miniSD adaptor). Good miniSD cards are very hard to find cheap nowadays, thanks to the decrease in the number of devices that uses it anymore.

Correct. For some reason the Dingoo can't handle USB 2.0.

im using a class 4 8gb from play.com for ?10.99, had to buy a mini sd adapter from ebay though ?1.49, i think stuff transfers quicker through a card reader rather than through the dingoo

I have a class 4 16GB microSD card (with miniSD adaptor), it works great, never had any problems with it and video rarely lags. I use a card reader to transfer files to it, that seems to be faster.

I grabbed an 8gb class 4 off newegg: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820134987

$22.99 with free shipping, plus it includes a USB reader and micro->mini and micro->SD adapters.  I've always had good luck with Kingston, so I tend to stick with them for this kind of stuff.  Haven't gotten my dingoo yet, so can't tell you how it works in it, but I don't anticipate any issues.

I've got a $38.07 Kingston 16GB SDHC (Class 4) on order from http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.16192, hopefully it works. I'd like to hear from anyone using a 16GB card, if there's any..

I'm sorry must have missed your post.  :-[ That's good to hear someone is using a 16GB card.. I had this bad thought that it wasn't going to be compatible for me!

That is an SD card mate, won't work, you need either a MicroSD card with a Mini adapter or obviously a MiniSd card.

The former will be your best bet.

Maybe faster cards can improve performance just a bit in heavy emulation (like the PSX project... it easily fills the RAM, and needs to read big ammounts of data actively...

can anyone confirm or deny it

Oh shite. I knew I'd make a mistake with my order! So changed to http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.7184 and this memory card instead https://store.9289.com.au/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=3501. It's a bit smaller (8GB), but local supplier and free delivery. Had to cancel my memory card order with DX, got a credit now.

I've picked the right stuff this time, right?  :P

EDIT - What the heck happened to my post?  Somehow my text was up in the quote, sorry.

You have a microSD to miniSD adapter, right?  If not, you'll need one of those too.  I didn't see a micro to mini adapter included in the specs of the link you posted (some microSD cards include them, most don't anymore since miniSD is so unusual).  Otherwise though, you're good.

Huh? If I look at the transfer speed to my Dingoo, I'm pretty sure it's USB 2.0. Maybe the older versions are USB 1.1?

Also, I'm using a 2GB Dane-Elec MicroSD card in a MicroSD>MiniSD adapter from Dealextreme. No idea what class the card is, I bought it a long time ago for my Nintendo DS.

Yeah that should be you. Only problem is that cheap Mini adapter I got a duff one and so have other people. When you get it if it doesn't work look at the back and make sure the pins ARE NOT all even. If there are and it doesn't work take a picture and explain to DX that is the problem, they should send you a replacement. I just threw mine out.

You might not run into any problems though, hopefully.

I'm going to order a second one from some where else then, just to be safe. Wouldn't want to receive my dingoo and not be able to install dingoux for a week because of a silly little adapter. Cheers!
