    Hello Everyone,

    As you may see this is my first post so a big hello to everyone here.


    Ok, so i am thinking about getting a GBA flash cart to go with my DS. Thing is, i have no clue on where to start.

    So, After doing some reading, I thought that the EZ Flash III would be my best bet. However, i am not sure if this is the right cart for what i need. What do you guys recommend?


    I have an ORIGINAL DS. So i'd rather a DS/GBA cross compatible device.

    It needs to have sufficient space, even if its NAND flash.

    Also, I live in Canada and hardly shop off the internet (i've bought 1 item from Gamersection.ca and 1 from ebay) so if you could put a link to a reputable seller i'd really appreciate it.
    And, if its linked to GBAtemp (ie. i buy from them, they give you commission) I'd LOVE to support you guys! You're such a great site!.

    Sorry for the post being so long. I guess it has to be. [​IMG]

    How much money are you willing to spend... if you have a lot and want the best, I'd easily recommend (as well as everybody else on GBATemp) that you'd get an M3 Perfect Lite.

    You can enter a code from GBATemp to get a discount (forgot what it was or how much).

    It'd help if you read the post and saw he has an original DS, so the M3 Perfect Lite won't fit in it [​IMG]

    m3 perfect lite works, you have to change the shell when you get it to a normal gba shell that comes with it.

    it is 5% discount, if I remember right.

    Thanks for the replies.

    Well, m3 perfect is kinda expensive and i only want it to play GBA games (i'm sure there must be something cheaper) as i already have a r4 for DS games. That is, i don't want to pay $70+ for something a $30 Flash cart can do.

    Also, i'd rather something that it be compatible for an original DS, this way i don't need to change the case.


    So, as of now i am thinking of ordering the EZ Flash IV, but if anyone could find a reputable seller that still has the EZ Flash III i would REALLY appreciate it.

    Hey guys, Update again.



    Since i have an r4, i think i will buy the EZ Flash IV GBA sized expansion pack. I think this is the best choice, and i will use Rudolph's GBAExpLoader to load games.
    What do you guys think? I believe this is the best solution.
