Hello
I'm looking for a cheap GBA flash cart for us with my gameboy micro.
So any recommendations of where to buy and what one to buy is what i'm looking for from you

P.S. I am in the UK and i can only use paypal, or a visa electron card (which some places do not accept)

gba kits are a 8yr old technology. they are hard to find these days but i can recommend the flash2advance kits. i own a 128mb one (one of the early versions) and it still works great to this day. the issue with f2a is that they require a gba expansion port (the link port) out the top to flash them. i have no idea if this works on the micro. i'm not sure if the m3 perfect gba size kit works on the micro either (you should research this), but the m3 kit is a great slot2 device.

Slot-2 M3 Perfects that fit into a GBA or DS Phat will also work on the Game Boy Micro, unless I'm horribly mistaken. An old NOR-based cart like the Flash2Advance probably would not be recommended due to the link cable differences, so something like the M3 Perfect or EZ-Flash IV Deluxe would probably be a better choice.

I'm pretty sure the deluxe is LITE sized so that wouldn't fit in a GBA Micro. The only place I have seen selling a GBA sized one is at DealExtreme.EZ 4 It uses mini SD though and I hear it's hard to get out if you use one of those adapters.

Then disregard my suggestion. I don't really know too much about the EZ-Flash III and IV so I misunderstood what the various models were.

Best "cheap" choices would be

Dealextreme.com

$31 EZ4 (phat) (SD Bassed)
$28 Supercard (SD Bassed)
$24 ELink 256M/32MB (Onboard Storage Average card)
$N/A

i would recommend the ez4 phat (miniSD)
i prefer the EZ3 and EZ4 to the supercards/g6/etc.

I highly recommend any SD based slot 2 cart's

No Driver's to worry about at all

Onboard storage cards always have problems with driver's
Elink WILL NOT WORK with Vista

MiniSD's are your best bet
MicroSD's are usable but some people have problems with "cheap" adapter's
The kingston MicroSD i use that came with 2 adapters works perfectly
Model:(2GB/2ADP)

And the software (don't need the card with you to get everything ready)
