    Ive been looking all over the net for a cart for my gameboy micro. I really wanted to get the EFA Linker but i cant seem to find it for sale anywhere. I was wondering if there is a place i can get it or if i should just give up looking and get another cart. what would be another good selection?

    I also have the Micro and I'm using EZ4 Mini SD cart, works great except I'm having an issue saving some games, which I believe can be resolved.. I just need to find out exactly how.

    Gamersection has some (EFA) i think and Kicktrading just added some on their site. Gamersection also has the 1gbit EZ3 for the same price as EFA512 and the EZ4 normal version for 47 USD

    I prefer the EFA (v1) over any EZ cart ... its just so simple, fast and can save any game perfectly.

    Gamersection seems to be the only place that has them. to bad they charge so much to ship. plus another charge since im not in canada. i didnt see the efa linker on kicktrading?

    Just a warning if your getting a proper flash cart for the GB micro. If it comes with a link cable make sure you have a GBA SP to put the games on the cart. I've got the EZFA flashcart and have tried to find the leads to connect it up to the usb port of my pc and can't.

    do you think the more expensive cards are worth it? i heard they give you better battery life cause it runs at a lower voltage. also i heard some of the carts that read sd cards tend to be slow? fuctfcut msg me on aim if u can plz .. aim name = glift14

    I went with the EFA because of this .. all games boot instantly no waiting to load from SD card to SRAM .. Just press the button and game loads. Also its super simple software and loader (what you see on the GBA screen) all the extra stuff on the EZ carts look annoying and useless.

    I don't use AIM .. you can msg me on MSN ollie_dixon@hotmail.com

    EDIT: Looks like Gamersection is actually out of stock on both the 512 and 256 :'(

    I assume it prolly because everyone wants DS carts now .. not much of a market for pure GBA anymore :'(

    I would tell you to get the X-Rom but they don't make them no more.
