So... I bought a Memory Card Plus from Estarland.com and it doesn't seem to work.. Is there some sorta special way to get it working? Came with no instrustions or anything. I tried looking online and found nothing, can anyone help? or is it just broken?

AHH... heheh... sorry dawg, but those mem cards suck the big one! Go get yourself an "AR 5 in 1"... if it ain't got the SEGA name on it or its not an AR then it's crap!

Well, I want a mem card that will be able to save directly to it, I have a action replay 4 in 1 that I use as well.

your only option is a Sega Brand Memory Card. They are the only ones you can save directly too. I found two on ebay just right now. They are available for what seems to be for the remainder of today almost from Great Britain. I believe they are region free as well.

No, there are unofficial direct-save memory cards out there as well.

As far as I know, unofficial mem cards will compress data on the fly and tend to get corrupted

exactly why I don't buy them and say they are crap.

There is rarely a third party product that outdoes a first party version, and Saturn memory cards no exception. If you stay Sega - you stay safe. Wow, what a slogan. :)

I never said the unofficial ones are better then the official ones. I only said they support direct-saving.

Of course it doesn't apply for Sony. Their PS1 cards died on me just like any knock off.
