    I only got a Supercard SD, EZ4, M3 SD and M3 CF.
    Along with a PassKey2 Passcard 3 and SuperKey (to boot them in NDS mode)

    As for GBA's themselves, a shitty GBA and black GBA SP is what I got ;p

    I'll snap some pics soon.

    I wish my GBA collection wasn't packed away. I've only got my GBM and a couple of carts out just now. Maybe I'll take a couple of photos tomorrow anyway.

    It'd be nice to see other peoples' collections too. Especially game collections. :)

    Ah, man... Back in the day I had a platinum Advance and a black/silver Micro (which I picked up on clearance for $30. $30!), as well as a beat-up fat DS and a white DS Lite, as well as a bunch of great games (some legit, some counterfeit) and one of those 128M Fire Linker carts from DX.

    Well, I wore out the Platinum GBA eventually, and my little brother broke my fat DS a few months after I gave it to him. Ended up selling the Micro and the Lite, as well as most of my carts. I think I still have the Fire Linker, but god knows where that is. All I've got now are a handful of carts and a backlit SP in desperate need of a paint job or full-on reshell.

    Thanks! I'm really happy with my collection, it's still expanding.
    I might buy "Klonoa: empire of dreams" this month, not sure since it's a bit expensive.

    Nice collection. I've got one of those EFA Linker carts too, and it really is the forgotten gem in GBA flashcarts IMHO. Awesome compatibility, RTC, dead reliable. Not much capacity, but I only play a couple games at a time anyway.

    If you ever have read/write failures with it, clean the micro-usb port on the cart and your cable terminals with some electronics contact cleaner. (available at Radio Shack)

    Thanks for the tip Hanafuda, I'm using it in the GC and it is quite a reliable cart actually.

    I believe mine is a knock off, FAST was talking about a lot of them that were sold now are usually knock off's, out of all my carts, the only one I have ever used was the EZIV, mostly because its easiest to work with, the reason I'm collecting so many however, is that I am using them for research for my senior design project, a new, much improved GBA flash cart. I really wish I would be able to get my hands on a M3 cart, that would probably be what I want to base mine off of, but I havent even seen on go for sale since I started collecting, I had a good shot at a EZ-III DEV cart, but the user on here, JayRo, suddenly stopped messaging me, and I believe he sold it to someone else. A damn shame and honestly, it makes me pretty upset that he wouldnt at least tell me what was going on. Once mine is completed and tested I intend to send it to FAST for a review, then maybe a few others, if everyone likes/wants one, then I may look into producing them.

    Darkipod,

    yeah, after I looked at your pictures again, my guess would be that your EFA Linker is one of the knockoffs that were being sold for a while after production of the original cart ended. From what I recall, function is about the same, but no RTC. The reason I guessed yours was a knockoff was the USB cable ... I can see yours is black, but the real EFA Linkers came with 2 transparent USB cables (1 short, 1 long). Even more interesting and unconventional, it came in a solid wooden box. It wasn't heirloom quality or anything, but that's just weird when most everything else like this is packaged in a cardboard box or a molded plastic bubble.

    Good luck on the GBA cart design. I'll surely buy one if it goes into production, I need something new.
