    My ezflash 3 in 1 has been giving me problems recently, only after buying it 1 month.
    The following error comes up when trying to load a gba game:
    "format SRAM for YSMENU?
    the other tool's data will be overwritten"

    I've tried changing the button battery since I thought that would fix it, but the same error still appears.
    You have any clue what the problem could be?

    You have insufficient posts to view user location.
    You probably was sold an older 3in1, constant messages for formating the SRAM for use is a sign of a dying battery. The only other cause of this message is that you have a rom that has an incompatible save format, for these you have to SRAM patch the game and delete any save files associated with it.

    you will have to open it up and replace the battery with the new one if it is the battery.

    I have made a guide to identify by sight what version of the 3in1 you have here:

    If your board is green, it is very likely a dying battery.

    Those with a blue board are more likely a rom compatibility issue instead.
