    I've been looking everywhere for opinions on Slot-2 Flashcarts so it can go along with my R4.

    EZ Flash 3 in 1 is great, but it can only play GBA games and it only holds one game at a time.

    M3 Lite is way more overpriced than the G6 Lite after the added cost of the MicroSD.

    EZ Flash IV Lite isn't my choice due to it's abnormal cartridge.

    Cost isn't much of an issue, just read my sig!

    Just as long as the price tag is below $70... So if you know a good place to buy the G6 Lite (Besides Dealextreme, they NEVER have it in stock.), please tell me!

    I just have a few questions:

    1.) Does G6 Lite support rumble?

    2.) NDS and GBA rom Compatibility, correct?

    3.) G6 Lite can obviously be used as a RAM expansion for the Opera Browser, right?

    4.) How well does it fare in GBA compatibility?

    5.) Why is there a $45.00 G6 Lite on Dealextreme, when there is a $80+ G6 Lite EVERYWHERE else?

    ~Thank you everyone! [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Anywhere else that sells the Chinese version?

    I'm fine with it being in Chinese... $70+ for GBA functionality+Ram Expansion kinda hurts...

    That's okay. I'm sure that minimum wage will be more than enough to afford on that's over. [​IMG]

    I'd actually say go for the M3 Lite. Not Pro. People everywhere say that it's a good combo with an R4.

    Why not just buy a bigger MicroSD card?

    Bigger MicroSD card? For the EZ Flash 3 in 1, right?

    Well, I think I have a serious OCD problem.

    If I'm going to get a bigger MicroSD card for my R4, I'm going to use it for Homebrew/DS/Retro Games. Not for GBA games. I just have some weird problem. I don't like everything relying on a single unit of memory. (Except my Computer's Hard Drive, that is.) [​IMG]

    Lawl. Ha ha.

    An EZFlash3-in-1 doesn't use SDs.

    You're technically correct. But IIRC, EZ Flash 3 in 1 uses the R4's MicroSD.

    EDIT: Forget it everyone. I decided to get a EZ Flash 3 in 1. I can live with GBA ROMs on my 1 GB MicroSD. XD I might upgrade to 2GB soon.

    Yeah, just got mine from Dealextreme. And note they have it in both white and black. If I recall they default in showing the white one on all the main pages but dig a little and they have a black one as well. [​IMG]

    Alright, thanks for the tip.

    How about a place to buy MicroSD's for cheap? The best I could find was Newegg. [​IMG]

    Actually, you can put some DS games on the 3 in 1, if you really want to. Not much use in doing so, though.

    I have a R4+ EZFlash 3-in-1 combo. Use NDStation, and you can place unlimited GBA games in your DS at a time. You can play as many games as you want at a time; each have their seperate save files. It works, really. In addition, it is cheap and is a rumble pak and ram expansion. If you already have an R4 or M3, it's the only thing you'll need.

    It supports rumble, GBA roms, Opera Browser. For nds games, just run them on your R4...

    Oh, and it's only 20bucks at dealextreme.

    Thanks for the suggestion, Lunatix.

    I think I'll stick to Newegg...

    Google Checkout is weird. [​IMG]

    The only one I've tried is Super Princess Peach, and it works fine. I ran NDS Patcher on it, and flashed it into NOR. It works from the R4's boot slot-2 option, and also with Flashme without the R4 inserted.

    M3 Lite is THE PERFECT!!!

    You can use it for REAL GBA Linkage!!

    But the G6 Lite? Well I'm not sure and I don't know, but I think NO.

    The G6 Lite is considerably better than the M3 Lite imo, but the price reflects that.
