    I want to get the EZ 3-in-1 GBA cart for my DS, but I want to make sure I know what i'm doing/getting before I spend the money for it.

    1.) I have M3 Simply. Is what I need to play GBA roms the EZ 3-in-1 cart? I assume it goes like this, but im not sure: put the 3-in-1 cart in the GBA slot, put a GBA rom on a mini SD and put that in the M3 Simply cart (like what I do for DS roms), load up the GBA slot from the M3 Simply menu, and there I can chose roms to play. Is this right?

    2.) How well do GBA roms play? Is it like playing a SNES emulator? Or is like DS roms, where most games run as perfect as the actual DS game?

    Thanks for any help!

    Well, i have an R4 and since the two carts are almost identical i should be able to help you.

    What i do is i boot up rudolphs GBA exp loader (set as my multimedia in disguise) and than select the game i want to play.

    oh and the games play like normal GBA games.

    and if you want to know how to set gba to multimedia, just rename it DS_MSHL_DAT or something. thats what you do with R4's.

    hope i helped.

    Thank you for your help, 8BitWalugi! I have a couple more questions tho...

    So you DO put the GBA ROMs on your mini SD card. So does the GBA Loader write the ROMs to the EZ Flash 3 in 1 cart? If so, can you delete files off of the cart so I can make room for more ROMs once i'm finished with them?
