    I've been away from the DS Scene for a while, so you'll have to forgive me if this news has already been posted.


    The original EFA Linker for the GBA--not to be confused with the EFA II--has finally made the jump to DS support. Similar to the SuperCard, users can now play Nintendo DS games with a simple software upgrade (v2.7+) and the addition of a PassMe/FlashMe. There's no reason to buy a whole new flashcard, no reason to feel exploited. The extremely quiet EFA community has finally given back.

    Advantages of using the EFA include: No load times, superb compatibility, the ability to store multiple roms on a single flashcard.

    Disadvantages of using the EFA are: Small card size, slow transfer speeds, and having to select 'Show all files' whenever the user wants to add a non-GBA rom.

    In the end, the EFA solution for DS users is the Google of flashcards. It's ugly, it's simple, and it works great. Here's hoping they continue to update their software as compatibility issues arise in the future.
