    If you don't want it to stick out of the back of a GBM, get a miniSD device. The M3 MiniSD should sit flush, so perhaps 4saken is thinking of the "slim SD" which takes regular SD cards and does stick out slightly.

    The microSD M3 and Supercard products fit only in DS Lites. The M3 Lite should come with a shell to make it fit in Phats and GBMs, but I've never used one myself. I don't know about the EZ-Flash series.

    The M3 MiniSD doesn't fit flush (according to the review). All the EZF one's do IIRC.

    I just got a GBM this week. I already have a PSP running custom firmware. I wanna know which card should I get to have a GBM that can play music,roms,movies,and homebrew?And being able to multi-task would be great. I'd love to be able to listen to music while I play roms,or at least while I'm in some kind of shell.

    No card that you can buy for the GBM can play music or movies.

    I use my M3 Lite with the GBA case.

    Works great on both of my Gameboy Advances.

    what are you talking about? theres more then a handful! Supercard, EZ IV, M3 just to name a few. Theres nothing special about the GBM slot. Only thing is that you cant play GB/GBC cartrigdes

    Well I did some research today with what little knowledge of flash cards,and I narrowed it down to 2 cards.

    -EZ-Flash III
    -EZ-Flash IV mini-SD

    here is what I want to be able to do with my micro:

    -play music
    -play video
    -play emulators (MAME,PC Engine/Turbo Grafix,SNES)
    -view pictures
    -save games,or save the exact spot where I stopped playing
    -Use some kind of shell (example: moonshell,pogoshell)
    -run homebrew games and applications

    So I would greatly appreaciate it if some one would either recommend one of the cards above or perhaps another card that would fit my needs.

    Both can do pretty much most (if not all) of the above. They're essentially the same loader

    "Well, for a DSphat gen card it's pretty small, almost sitting flush with the DS itself. It sticks out roughly 2mm, not too bad." - M3 mini SD review

    "I believe there is a revision that sits perfectly flush with the DSphat!"

    The DS's GBA port is the same size as the micro port AFAIK

    Depends whether this is true or not, and how old the store you're planning to buy it from has held their stock

    make sure you get the latest EZClient and RESET LOADER from the ezflash forums.

    They will give you the best game compatibility.

    Holy shit this is the third fucking year old topic that you've revived, and for what? To let us know what you bought? Seriously, necroposting is one of the most annoying things ever on a message board... Honestly, let these damn topics die.
