    Hi, i bought a M3 Simply and a 1 gigabyte kingston micro SD card a few months back for my DS lite and they've been great.

    The thing is though, now ive been considering upgrading to a 2GB kingston card so i can fit some more media (namely music and videos) for playback on my DS. This would leave me with a spare 1GB micro SD card as well as my desire to play GBA games on my DS (especially metroid fusion and zero mission)

    I've been looking through some reviews on this site and i think my best options would be to look at the EZ Flash IV deluxe or the M3 lite. Keeping in mind that i only want a slot 2 card SOLELY for playing GBA roms which would be best and how would i use them in conjunction with my M3 simply?

    as far as i can tell from what ive read it would be a case of loading gba roms onto the ez flash/m3 and then using the slot 2 booter on the m3 simply to run it and then i just choose my gba game and go.

    if anybody could help me out it would be very much appreciated, thank you

    yeah i had thought about the ex flash 5 expansion pack but i read these two things on the review for it on this website:

    "The Expansion Pack will only work with the EZ-V, so if you have a different slot-1 cart you won’t be too interested in it for the time being."

    and

    "There is no EZ-V GBA loader menu meaning that you can only have one game on the cart at one time."

    those two issues are the only things that are telling me not to get the 3 in 1, but then again the review is old and i guess that there is now m3dss support as well as a rom loader in which case id be very keen.

    Using rudolphs loader with my M3 DS Simply I can flash PSRAM any of the 20 Roms for the GBA(some had to be SRAM patched no biggie fast and easy) to the cart and ran in a matter of second And it includes a menu for doing all this so yes that review is VERY old [​IMG]

    If you end up getting one and need help getting it to work I would be more then willing to help and give you a Guide on howto [​IMG]

    I use the M3 Lite. 100% compatibility as I've seen.

    I've had no problems with it thus far.
