    I got the EZ Flash 3 in 1, put it in my DS and load up Rudolphs tool ( already have some GBA games as well. )

    I start rudolphs tool and this is what it says, " 3in1 expansion pack not found. PLease redo from start. "

    It's plugged in though ( my 3 in 1 )
    Is there something I needed to do first or something?

    Help please

    Sounds like a bad connection in the GBA port. Plug and unplug the cart a few times in the slot....see if that fixes it. It should work after that.

    My SCminiSD will do that on occasion too.

    Im having the same problems you are. I just got 2 ezflash 3in1 packs today from gameyeeeah. Is that the same place you got yours from? Im starting to wonder if they got ahold of a bad product run. I have 1 black and 1 white and neither works on 2 DS with 2 R4 cards.

    Try Rudolphs 2 in 1 tool instead, just to see what happens.

    I recently recieved one also, same message. Using the 2in1, i get the message:

    "There is no SAVE information in the SRAM. It is considered EZ4 and executes it."

    Upon bypassing this and selecting a game the game bios appears and the game doesnt start.

    EDIT:
    Tested rumble, works ok. RAM too.

    how did you get rumble to work? I checked in metroid pinball and the rumble was grayed out. Opera does work though.

    alright thank god. i'd rather wait for an update to the programs than have to send the ez flash 3 in 1 back to gameyeeeah after my horrible service w/ them.

    horrible service with gameyeeeah? I can't really complain about them at this point. They were a little slow to ship after ordering, but then again I made the previous mistake of ordering from modchipstore.com. They never shipped and I had to file a dispute with my CC company. But I suppose thats neither here nor there.

    Ive tried to contact the 3 developers I could find, rudolph via e-mail, and chuckstudios and cory1492 via blog comments. Hoping one of the 3 pulls through with a speedy fix.

    I used the EZ5_3in1 program by rudolph, you just select your rumble level then start whichever game you want straight after. I tried it on Elite Beat Agents (U).

    God speed the program updates. =]

    Drop me a line on the blog if the fix works (you'll know if it gets into the main program.) Hopefully Rudolph will actually understand you about the update [​IMG]

    No problem K2Valor, one report that it's working fine already [​IMG]

    tjt486:
    The change isn't huge (from (waking up and) knowing it existed to fixing it up and updating the posts on gbaldr took less than a half hour), but do be sure stuff over 16MiB burns correctly too as I saw something that struck me as odd in the source (which would kick in at 16MiB.)
