    I've been trying to get my m3 SD slim chinese version adapter to work with my GBM for almost 2 weeks now. Apparently it won't play GBA roms over 4MB in size.

    It also does not seem to detect and read the .dat save games in the "GAMESAVE" folder. When I try to run mario advance, it tells me that the save data is corrupt and I cannot continue.

    I cannot access the menu either. It's supposed to be A B L R together right?

    I have tried diff memory cards, FAT16 and FAT32, using the game manager and copying directly to the SD card. I renamed a blank .txt file in the GAMESAVE folder to a .bat. Am I doing it right?

    I bought this unit over ebay. It does play games like mario kart and stuff, so long as it's smaller than 4 MB.

    Anyone know what's going on? [​IMG]

    Ahhhhh! But if it doesn't have the gba chipset, how is it that I can still play the smaller GBA games?

    How can you tell just by looking at the m3 cart, what version it is?

    sorry dont know, but at my supplier in china it is told with the products: only plays nds and gba roms under 4mb because 1 chip is missing. That's why it cost only $30 [​IMG]

    The 4mb is enough for DS games, and it seems also gba games can use it then.
