    I see alot of these topics flying around but I guess I'll make a new one just because I want it to be custom for me. So I have a GB Micro and want to get a flashcard for it. I dont really want to pay much for it because I'm probably not going to use it much but I figured if I had a mico, mind as well get a card. So anyways, I just want one thats reliable and wont corrupt saves or anything. I also wouldn't mind a Micro SD slot but I dunno if it really matters. I want one thats a normal GBA color but then again I guess that doenst matter but I dont want it to stick out(Like white or somthing) So I dont know what to go with. Iv got like 4 choices.

    Elink
    EFA Linker 1 and II
    Elink 1G
    EZ Flash IV

    I dont know what to go with. I was kinda just gunna pop online and buy the cheapest one but I alo want compatibility so what do you think?

    I have EFA Linker 1, its very good, VERY good build quality, I might get II just to try it out.

    Thats good because I got bored waiting for a response and went with the EFA Linker II anyways. I would have went cheaper and got Elink but the compatibility looked bad and it wasn't drag n drop. 8 extra bucks aint bad.

    I too have that same 'combo' and it works great.
    I've never had any problems, and the software is super easy to use.

    Grab that if you've got enough cash, man.

    Well, I personally think that M3 Lite is worth the price, because it is a remarkable device....It could be cheaper, but it's worth every dime/penny/cent you pay for it...However, it's very hard to get it now, it's becoming more and more rare..

    I would get the M3 but like i said, I'm not getting this because I'm going to be using it like hell. I'm getting it just to get it. Just to pick up and play once in a while. So I went with the EZ IV

    I think you've chosen the right cart....I'm using 2 GB microSD card, and I've filled it with 1.6 GB of games!!
    And those are all games I'll ever consider to play for GBA, I think if I decide to finish all of them, it would took me a years of intensive playing....

    Man I love GBA!!

    Sounds like fun, getting into GBA again, maybe itll happen to me. Question about the EZ IV tho. Does it take MiniSD or Micro and I thought it didnt gave drag and drop so what does it do?

    it is drag and drop. it uses a sd. mini or micro not too sure.
    i think its just like a slot 1 but a slot 2 version...
    i got a supercard mini sd and imo, its flawless. i use it for music and a few games n homebrew while my slot 1 has games i 'own'.

    It uses microSD, and it isn't drag'n'drop...You need a software, EZ Client, and with it, you flash/patch your games on microSD, stick it into EZ IV, and you're good to go.....

    But seriously man, consider getting M3 Lite (with GBA casing)..

    Nicely said....and completely true about not pushing M3 Lite, it is a lot of money, so that option should be really considered carefully....No need to pay lots of money for playing rarely....But if you really like GBA, and plan to use it for a long time.....just consider taking it..

    Read carefully trough PharaohsVizier post once more, coz it's a really good post..and he's got the point...
