    My EZFA stopped saving recently. The battery meters out ok (~3v) - I think the SRAM chips stuffed.

    It might just be the battery, just plug it in the reader and leave it on overnight. Got an ez2 myselt and I pretty much have to "charge" it every 2 months or so [​IMG].

    Yeah, tried that. Initially the battery was flat as I hadn't used it in so long. I left my GBA SP running all night with the cartridge in and it charged the battery but still wouldn't retain the save after the GBA is powered off. It always goes back to 'New Game' no matter what game's on the card. I think the SRAM really is stuffed unfortuately but I may try a new battery for the hell of it!

    Actually tell a lie, I do have a problem with it; it often loses the save of the first game on the cartridge. (was supposed to be fixed in the 1.03 client but it's started doing it again). I just cheat, shove a no-saving homebrew as the first game and allocate some RAM to it so it doesn't matter if it wipes that savefile [​IMG]

    Random thought time; the EZ-FA charges as you play. If you're using a DS with the EZFA in slot 2, does it charge while you're playing a DS game from slot 1? (If I had to guess I'd say no, I'm not sure the DS supplies power to slot 2 while it's not being used but it's an interesting thought)

    I've still got mine, it's been going strong for about 3 years too.

    Saving is still working fine I was playing pokemon on it the other day.

    You can play EZFA games on the DS Lite, but you cannot write new games to the cartridge. You need a GBA or a GBA-SP to write games. (I think it might work in a GBA Micro with a link port adapter but don't quote me on that).
