    No, just put your GBA games into a folder called GBA on your Micro SD in the same way you would put DS games in the NDS folder and you should be good to go.

    Uh, I think some have issues with real-time saving and the internal clock. You may be out of luck if you play Pokemon. Well, not out of luck per se but you may have to reset the time every time you play.

    I got my Rumble RAM Pack yesterday, but somehow all the games seem to stop at the "GAME BOY" screen. i tried it on the hacked sakura and normal m3 firmware. Is my ram pack defect, or is there anything else i have to do? I tried big roms like Kingdom Hearts and smaller one's like mario games but both freeze at the logo ...

    When you boot the Sakura firmware does the top screen say "GBA Expansion pack detected"? With my pack I sometimes have to pull out the pack and re-insert it to get it to detect, sometimes I have to blow in it ala NES style.

    No, i have got the "Rumble RAM Pack" and not the "Rumble Pack".
    Rumble RAM Pack should be able to save GBA roms and to rumble.

    AFAIK there 3 different Slot2 devices,

    Rumble Pak
    Ram Pack
    GBA Expansion

    The GBA Expansion has 32mb of ram, so it can load Roms, the Ram pack only has a little bit extra ram for the Web Browser, and will not play GBA Games.
