    For the GBA micro I would recommend a flash cart that fits exactly. If you get one thats too big it will stick out like a sore thumb. I use a EZFA on mine but I don't think they sell them anymore. GBA temp has plenty of flash cart reviews you could always have a look at them to find the one you fancy.

    EZFA is good. Winsunx should still sell them.

    Well, the M3 is basically the only cart that allows removable media AND plays GBA titles near flawlessly...and the miniSD version is the exact size of a GBA cart. For the Gameboy Advance (all versions including Micro) I would highly recommend this card.

    but it would be a waste of money for getting a M3 just for GBA games if he doesn't own a DS [​IMG] ....

    No, you are wrong sir. The latest miniSD M3 units are EXACTLY the same size as a GBA cart. I own three of these latest units and can attest to it as fact.

    As for a waste, I think not. Who wants a flash cart that can hold a handful of games, when you can utilize flash media and store dozens and dozens of titles? And one of the M3's highlights is the fact that it can run GBA full speed perfect, and even run GBA roms that are not patched. It is VERY useful to the GBA user imho...regardless if you own a DS or not.

    third on the EFA. In fact I just got a new 512mbit, because I need my GBA perfect. I use a backlit SP2 for GBA, and DSLite w/ SC for DS. I don't really like to play GBA on the DS.
