    okay so i decided to buy m3i zero after reading up posta about how good it is
    now i have a question if i buy the m3 ds real expansion pack will it be compatible with my m3i zero and would it be able to function normally as in a normal gba cart(no need to patch, no dissappearing saves like my old supercard, compability with most gba rom) or is there any alternative like other combination

    M3 gba expansion. Beware of taking out the M3 expansion before booting the M3 and playing another game. If you do I think you lose the last gba save.

    I use the m3 gba expansion pack with the m3i zero (using sakura, can't speak for touchpod), and so far, the only issues I've had are with the Mario Advance games. One time my saves were lost on Mario Advance 1 and Mario Advance 4, though I think it happened due to me inserting a real cart after playing them (can't remember for sure either way), but that only has happened once, and only with 2 games (out of 20).

    I highly recommend the m3 gba expansion for gba gaming with the m3i.

    Yeah, the saving bug was discussed mainly in this thread.
    But yeah, aside from the fact that the M3 Expansion seems to eat power when it's inserted, I myself highly recommend it due to its high compatibility. [​IMG]
