    So i got a DSTT for my band new DS (trade in at eb games) While scouring for GBA emulation i found it it can't be done without an additional card, i'v seen the EZ Flash 3-in-1 recommended alot, but is it compatable with the dstt or do i need to get the one that came with the dstt in the review. Mine did not come with it, only the card and MicroSD card reader. The Box did indicate on the side that they were not included, (blank check boxes)

    From everything that I've read I believe that the EZ-Flash will work with the DSTT. I am kind of lookin for one too and not certain the EZ-Flash is really the one to get. I don't believe the bigger GBA games can fit on the cart but I'm not certain about that (I think it's got 128mbit capacity, but there were some 256mbit cartridges. Though I'd be pleasantly shown wrong if someone could tell me otherwise.

    The EZF3in1 has 16MB (128Mb) of PSRAM, which is cleared once the DS is shut off, but has dramatically shorter copying times than NORflash. It takes about 5-10 seconds to copy a ROM and execute it via PSRAM.

    It also has 32MB (256Mb) of the aforementioned NORflash; a ROM written to this will remain until a new ROM overwrites it. This is much slower than PSRAM, and can take upwards 2 minutes to copy over a 32MB ROM.

    Sorry to sort of high-jack the thread, I had thought of posting something similar but didn't so...here I am now [​IMG]. Are there any flashcarts that don't have that limit? I bought an eCube years and years ago, which still works fine (had to path a few games myself by randomly testing hex positions....but it works). But I'd prefer a card that sits flush in the DS Lite. But I'd prefer something that I couldstick a MicroSD in or something.

    I mean I guess you can still play everything which is great, but I would rather not have to copy games over before playing if I could. Hard to find lite sized slot-2 carts that have teh size of the older flashcarst (eCube for example is 1gbit, but I'd like 2 for all my games).

    The EZ Flash IV Deluxe is Lite size and takes MicroSD cards. Is that what you're looking for?

    Doesn't the eWin 2in1 have more memory than the EZ 3in1?

    I don't see why it would, if it's relying on the Slot-1 card to store ROMS there's absolutely no reason why it would need more than 32Mb of memory.

    Maybe he's thinking of the amount of RAM, where the 3in1 has 16 MB while the Ewin has 32 MB. On the 3in1 however, 32 MB games can be written to NOR and launched like regular GBA games. If you've got tons of 32 MB games, the 3in1 will be less convenient, but otherwise you can use either NOR or RAM fairly easily.
