    Hey, I have an acekard 2i for my DSL but i'm looking for a flash card that'll play GBA games and let me trade between the acekard 2i and the 2-slot GBA flashcard.

    Also, is it possible to import GBA game saves from an emulator on my computer to the GBA flashcard once I get it?

    Thanks, I don't understand what VBA is though? Will I need to convert the save types or anything? Or just transfer them to the flash card?

    oh okay thanks. Also, i'm trying to buy it off 0shippingshippingzone but it doesn't seem to come with a memory card or card reader. Will I be able to use the same card reader as my acekard 2i and what kind of memory card do I need to purchase for the 3in1?

    Sorry for the questions, just trying to make sure I don't waste money on un-necessary/non compatible items.

    The 3 in 1 has internal memory, no memory card needed.

    One last question, you said the saves are compatible with VBA but what about No$GBA?

    I'm not sure but you will be able to convert them anyway.

    you have to change the save format to raw or you can't change back and forth.

    I dont understand, is raw a format type like .raw? Right now i'm using No$GBA to play pokemon fire red and it's saving the game with .sav file types.

    .raw is a file extension name. Think about word processing programs (I'll pick on Word). You can make a document and can save it in .txt, .rtf or .doc. If I have a program that can't read .doc file's, I'm screwed. Same thing with computer emulators. They might save gave saves in a special format that the other emulators or the real cartridge can't read. Saving it in a "raw format" will let you copy the save from your emulators to your Slot2 cartridge.
