    I have the 20th Anniversary Gameboy Micro. I want to get a flash cart for it. I would prefer on that uses the MicroSD cards (MicroSDHC even better) - Anything out there that does this. If not what is the next best one in line? Also a link to buy if possible. Thanks for the help!

    here is a USA source for the EZ-Flash IV:
    http://www.realhotstuff.com/ezflash-size-p-294.html

    The EFA-Linker II is a fake, it is a 1Gb version of the EFA-Linker Simple. Not even worth the price listed.

    There is only the EZ-Flash IV for a GBA flashcart. The only way your gonna get GBA flashcart that is better than the EZ-Flash IV is in the trading section, and you currently don't meet the requirements yet.

    As far as I know, there weren't any GBA flash carts specifically tailored to the GB Micro form factor.

    Some people have hacked up NDS Lite-sized GBA flash carts to fit. The only readily available Lite-sized card I can think of is the Supercard Lite (USA, Pink, $44.35 Shipped) (China, Black, $25.60 Shipped OOS) (China, White, $25.60 Shipped In stock). I don't recall Supercards being great for GBA, but perhaps someone with one could tell you better. You can pick up some cheap NSD rumble packs so you don't have to hack up the cart's original case, or for spares if you mess up.

    Edit:
    Oops, my bad, Necropost (sort of). Not enough people post in GBA section [​IMG]

    G6 lite, but you can't buy them anymore, they have a case to fit into a normal gba slot.

    I''m also looking for one, I'm really confused about the flashcarts that actually work on a GBA, guess I'm just late to the game as dealextreme hasn't got any left apart from the SuperCard SD.


    Was checking the M3 Perfect Lite microSD, anyone know if it works on the GBM?

    Always have the EZ-Flash IV as last resort.

    EZ Flash IV will fit flush with GBA Micro. I know because I have one. I bought mine from Real Hot Stuff. They are good, and your flag is USA, so you should be good to go, I think they ship out of NJ. Get the largest MiniSD you can from NewEgg. I have a 2 gig one and it's more than enough. The only thing that sucks is the program to load the games if memory serves correctly. But you only do that once, there are no new GBA games coming out, and you should get a large enough card that would support anything you'd ever want to put on it.

    No I'm from Europe, I think that's just the default flag, I've checked Real Hot Stuff and the prices when converted to Euros end up considerable cheaper, I think that's a good choice as there aren't many stores carrying these items anymore.

    Got the EZ4 from 0shippingzone, arrived faster than I had anticipated, also got a 2GB miniSD, I flashed the cart with the latest firmware but some games like Yoshi Island don't load, I read it's broken because of DS support, what I ask is what firmware should I use for the GBA?

    Edit: Got it, use the V1.720 (EZ4loader070315-NoNDS.zip)
