    I already have an EZFA cart for playing GBA. I basically want the equivalent of it only with a micro SD because my EZFA has only 32MB storage, like most of the flash carts from back then.

    Basically my EZFA includes:

    *real time clock

    *works with every game I ever played from Advance Wars to Riviera.

    *the client included auto trimming, and patching for cheats and soft reset

    *normal GBA cart size for a DS classic

    It sounds like the EZ4 is popular, but lacks the real time clock so I'm not sure which one I need. Plus it seems difficult to find a site that sells the normal in addition to the lites. And I do not care about DS games compatibility whatsoever, I already own an Acekard RPG so for all I care, my GBA cart should only play GBA games.

    For all the features your EZFA cart has + MicroSD Support only choice would be M3 Perfect (2x the cost of a ez4 about $80)

    But if you don't care about the RTC and only want to pay half the price
    Ez-Flash IV would be your best bet (about $25-$45 Depending on version)

    Since you have a ds (ill assume Lite)
    you could get the EZ4 Lite Deluxe (also looks like it comes with a DS phat case (wich could be easily modded to fit gba)
    32MB PSram
    Ram feature (ds roms have to patched)

    If you need anymore info let me know

    EZ4 CLient Includes

    *Rom Trimming
    *Reset Patching
    *Save Patching

    In other words keep a backup of all your rom's (mine are stored on my old 1GB MiniSD)

    (and best you not be a grammar nazi and if you are i wont provide anymore help sry)

    No, like I said above "normal GBA cart size for a DS classic" so lite carts are not an option.

    Thanks, I'll take a look at the M3 Perfect. Price is no concern.

    I hadn't heard about that, I'll have to look that up. I thought I had read a disclaimer on one of the major retail sites that stated something like 'not for use in an older DS, we won't give refunds if you can't use it in your DS'
