    Hi there,

    I must be honest : I know almost nothing about this but here it goes, the following question :
    - a tiny and cuty Micro found its home yesterday in my playful little hands. And I was wondering what card would work in this? And would offer a large capacity, fast uploading to the cart itself (MicroSD? MiniSD card???) and perhaps even a RTC clock / saving? Furthermore: if someone could point me to a link where your recommendation is sold, that would be great (thanks in advance!). Oh yeah, I already checked dealextreme and gameyeaaah (and some others...) without any luck :-(

    thanks!!!

    do slot 2 carts for the DS work with the game boy micro? I'm confused on what works and what doesnt work when it comes to flashcarts.

    and some links would be nice also

    btw, heres something that i am considering to buy

    My apologies for the late reply but thanks a lot PharaohsVizier!
    I went for the EZ Flash IV, the M3 lite was somewhat hard to find and I stumbled upon a webshop which still had that EZ Flash IV...

    My thanks again, I'm now anxiously waiting the arrival of my cart [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
    all the best!

    I ended up ordering two carts from dealextreme. I have ordered the EZ Flash IV Mini SD version, and also a Supercard Mini SD version as well.

    They were dirt cheap, and are currently somewhere in the postal system.

    Can't wait to get it as I have been using my old Flash2Advance cart with my new ebayed Silver Micro, but am depressed at how few games I can fit on it at once, and having to use my very old Gameboy SP to actualy write to the cart.

    Well i am going to have some Hot and Steamy GBA Action tonight with my little Micro as my EZ Flash IV has arrived. I have loaded it with around 170 games, and it seems to work a treat.

    I shall give it some welly tonight and see how it performs [​IMG]

    This is probably a really stupid question, but: can you use a MicroSD with a MiniSD adaptor for the EZ-Flash IV (because I'm considering a purchase).

    Well in a review on DealExtreme, someone says to use a MicroSD to Mini SD adapter if you have a MicroSD because it uses MiniSD not MicroSD. I assume that it should work fine with the EZ Flash IV.

    remember, for GBA or gba micro (or even classic DS), they use "full sized" slot 2 carts.

    forexample, m3 lite usually comes as a smaller cart made so it doesnt stick out of the DS LITE gba slot.

    u have to make sure u get the FULL SIZED version of the m3 lite.

    a website i use (gamersection.ca) im in canada, on this site they have the m3 lite, and they also sell the "shell" to put the m3 lite inside to make it a full sized gba cart.

    so keep that in mind when purchasing for older devices.

    Exactly as Silvershadow had suggested.

    I bought my M3 Perfect Lite from 01media and the GBA shell from Gamersection. They both ship international and was perfect choice for me.

    Hi,

    I'm not sure why but my brother's came without. No harm having more shells though. [​IMG]

    You have insufficient posts to view user location.
    The M3 slot2 came in 2 kits, one with all the shell replacements and another with none or 1 extra shell. gamersection.ca might have sold the latter since it was cheaper.
