    Hello,

    I have a Nintendo DS Lite and a R4 SDHC and I recently purchased an EZ Flash V 3in1 so I can play GBA games, especially Pokemon.
    I followed this guide http://gbatemp.net/threads/beginners-guide-to-the-ez-flash-3in1.293643/ and everything went smoothly until I copied some GBA roms. The problem I have is that when I run GBA_Exploader on my Nintendo, I can't see any of my GBA roms. Are there some compatibility issues between my R4 and EZ Flash? Is my R4 fake? Am I downloading the wrong roms? Are they not "clean"? And if so how do I tell if they are clean or not?
    I'm sorry if this has been asked before, I didn't find any answer for my problem.
    Thank you for your time.

    P.S. I can run Nintendo DS games with no problem.

    What does having a fake R4 have to do with this? I have to determine if you set everything up correctly first before moving on to some other cause. Use the 3in1 sticky here in this section to identify what 3in1 you have.

    Have tried all the versions, none of them seemed to work. Still couldn't see any roms. But, the 0.57 was giving me "Slot2 expasion pack not found. Please redo from start."
    I will have to open it and tell for sure what version I have. I will do later today.

    Your definition of "later today" seems a bit long. To save time, you should probably just send it back for either a replacement or your money back. You will have to email the vendor to get a RMA before sending it back.

    Yes, it has passed 2 weeks and I'm sorry for it. :(
    I, finally, got it open and my version is EZ5C3 (03/2008). It's just like the blue one from your thread, meaning it should work with GBA ExpLoader 0.58b0, right?

    It's not working, still can't see any GBA roms with the GBA ExpLoader. What do you think the cause may be? What's wrong?

    You probably got a dead 3in1. You will need to RMA it if you can or buy another one.

    OK. Thank you.
    Can you link me a site, which you think is trustworthy, from where to buy a new one?

    Use the shoptemp link in the menu above.
    Place not listed in shoptemp are:
    http://shop01media.com/brand.asp?ID=434 (in EU)
    http://www.realhotstuff.hk/EZ-Flash-Team_bymfg_6-0-1.html (in HK)
    Mostly any place that sells DS flashcarts will sell the 3in1.

    Use the EU list to find something closer to your home if you want it sooner, otherwise just order it from a HK site and it will be cheaper but take 2-4 weeks to get to you.

    If you really believe it is the R4 like you assumed, you can get a AK 2.1 and run AKAIO. AKAIO has a few more features that running Wood R4.
