    Hello,
    I just bought an EZ 3 in 1 Expansion Pack to play GBA games. Ok, I downloaded GBA EXPloader, 3 in 1 Expansion Tool 1.9 to test the GBA games. They work almost perfectly because i can't save any game!!! I've converted the save method to SRAM, EEPROM, all types in EZ4 Utility. I've tried also with GBATA but without success. NDS Station doesn't work.
    But I don't understand why the EZ 3 in 1 rumble and expansion feature works and the GBA save doesn't work!!
    And... I search various topics about this, but any success
    Please, somebody help me, because I'm desperate!!!
    Thanks and I await a possible solution.

    There
    i had ths too,the main reason is that your battery has run dry(factory defect)the battery is needed to save,if GBAExploader asks you to initialize the cart every time then that proves it,you should have the ezflash 3-in-1 replaced or if your brave enough do it yourself http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=132872

    That's why I have too. It is common that the battery is factory defect? Because then it's always a risk to buy ez flasxh 3in1 expansion pack if the battery is the weak element.

    I'm still doubting what I should do, try to replace it myself or not. Currently I'm still mailing with the seller about this issue. It's giving me a headache.

    Just replace it, I managed to do mine yesterday without breaking anything. Cost me $6 and a trip to RadioShack.
