    I can load a game into PSRAM no problem but if I try to load it into NOR it freezes. Also it randomly freeze even just trying to browse the menus of GBA ExpLoader. I have never had a problem with my R4 before and I got my 3 in 1 from Deal Extreme

    I think the answer is obvious, its not completely compatible with the firmware, does it have problems when you don't use the gba stuff?

    You have insufficient posts to view user location.
    question might be:

    you got more than 50 games in 1 directory?

    No I don't. If your talking about GBA games I have like 10. If your talking about any directory period I may in my main NDS games directory if you include the .SAV files could that cause it?

    are you using the same directory for your nds and gba games? if so, start seperating them, you will need to modify the ExpLoader ini file to match any changes.

    if your still getting the same issue, you might just have a bad 3in1.

    No My NDS Games are in the Games folder and my GBA games are in my GBA folder. Would a bad 3 in 1 cause it to freeze even just going through the menus?

    you might have a bad copy of the ExpLoader if you suspect the hardware to be fine.
