    Which is better, which is more common to find? Does EZ Flash have problems with some GBA Games? I saw a list of games that don't work with eWin and it kind of startled me.

    I want to get DSTT bundle, but if I can't, Acekard 2 and eWin or EZ-Flash.

    Mainly I want to know if EZ-flash works with most games, about its saves and which card is more common.

    Thank you

    P.S., will a 2GB Kingston MicroSD work with both packs?

    the EZ flash 3 in 1 is more commonly used
    i think it has very good compatibility
    the ewin is cheaper, but everyone uses the 3 in 1 anyway

    for the microSD, you dont need one for the EZ flash 3 in 1 (or any other slot 2 expansion)
    you only need the microSD for your ackcard2 or DSTT or w/e flashcart you have

    The EZFlash 3-in-1 is more common and easier to find. It works just as well as the eWin with the DSTT, although I would highly recommend an Acekard 2 with the EZFlash 3-in-1. Aside from the fact that the Acekard 2 is better than the DSTT in nearly every way, both the EZFlash and the eWin are supported directly from the menu with the Acekard 2 (particularly with the AKAIO menu), whereas you have to use a separate loader such as GBA ExpLoader with the DSTT.

    Yes, the 2GB Kingston will work fine with either one. The GBA files are actually stored on the microSD card that goes in your slot 1 flash cart -- neither the eWin or the EZFlash have a microSD holder of their own.

    I would warn against the EZ Flash 3in1.

    I have owned 2 and both of them have had faulty batteries. It could be bad luck, but *very extensive* research to figure out what was wrong, has led me to believe there is a short in the circuitry. I am now in the position of deciding whether I should RMA my second 3in1 or just find some other product to play GBA games with.

    All I know is that I've had massive problems with them, and I'm not the only one. However, it seems that many people are happy with them... so I don't know if there was a bad batch (the two I've owned have been in the past 4 months) or if I'm just incredibly, unbelievably, unlucky.

    I used the 3in1 with an AceKard2.1.

    Good luck!

    For Supercard users: The Ewin 2in1 is a good choice because it's more easier to use that 3in1 and the DSone supports this Ewin. GBA Exploader works fine.

    For others users: The M3 GBA cartridge is a good choice because it's more easier that 3in1 to use and supports GBA Real Time Clock. GBA Exploader works fine.

    The EZ 3in1 is a good choice because supports Rumble (NDS & GB with Lamboy) but GBA Exploader doesn't work correctly on 3in1+.
    GBA Exploader supports more saver type with a Ewin 2in1. (see japanese readme) and M3 GBA cartridge supports GBA Real Time Clock.
