After about a year since I bought it, it looks like my EZ-Flash 3-in-1 battery bit the dust. Every time I start Rudolph's loader, it asks to use the expansion pack (like it does if it's you're first time using it). The games won't retain their saves if I turn the DS off and I can't load my savegames from the microSD in slot-1 (or back them up from the 3-in-1 since they apparently aren't saving). Are these things SUPPOSED to die after only a year of use? Now I can still write games and play them fine, but I can't save at all. I can also use the rumble and memory for the browser and some homebrew. But I really cherish the use of my GBA games. All in all, I'd like a new card like this. I don't care about rumble as I never use it. I had a couple in mind: Ewin M3 Real expansion If anyone has any other ideas, I'd appreciate it. And do the batteries last any longer on these?
