    Flash carts for GBA sp are hard to find in stock. Has anyone used a EZ Flash V (3 in 1) for like this one. Everyone says to get a EZ Flash IV but I can't find one in stock anywhere.

    Elink might be a good idea? its cheap, and 4saken is selling his.

    Ez3in1 is no good for a gba sp. Ez4 is good but check out the Elink too.

    The 3in1 is good for DS owners who already have a slot-1 device, but on its own it won't do you much good for a GBA SP, unless you wish to use a DS every time you want to change games.

    I have a 3 in 1 for my DS, it's great.
    Been thinking about buying a Micro off play asia, if I get around to it, I'll probably buy an EZ IV.

    What about the M3 perfect? ^ I have been looking at that for awhile now.

    Thanks, what do you think is the best choice in the "dual loaders" flash cart area? By dual loaders I mean flash carts that load both GBA and NDS files. I am not on a budget so feel free to tell me the very best one even if it is over $90.

    PS: Real hot stuff has M3 CF for $60. Is that a great deal? I was thinking that would be a great choice. I can't tell if it is M3 pro or perfect though. >.>

    dual loader? M3 Perfect, if you have the money, it's rather expensive.

    I really don't mind. I am used to my GBAMP. Is that CF version on real hot stuff perfect or pro?

    Ya, I hate it how they don't say what kind it is. How am I supposed to buy something when the description is "M3 adapter" [​IMG]

    Hey, PharaohsVizier, if the M3 perfect can load all GBA roms and all DS roms why do people even bother to buy slot 1s if all you need for life is M3 perfect? I was just wondering since I found the M3 perfect on real hot stuff for only $60.

    The M3 team doesn't update any new hardware for their M3 perfects anymore do they? I really think an M3 perfect CF is great for me for just $60 and I already have over 4GIGs of CF storage to put some games and media on. I really don't care about the hassles of patching as long as the games work in the very end. So do the new games work with M3 perfect like contra 4, zelda PH, and mario party DS? Since there are no new updates I was wondering if the newer games are incompatible. As long as I know all GBA games and NDS games can run on an M3 CF perfect then I am sold but I need to know that first.

    Again, PharaohsVizier, I am VERY thankful for all your help. Good thing there are helpful people like you out there.

    Very nice, thanks. Guess it is either M3 perfect or wait until I can find an AceKard RPG.

    Hey, I have been wondering, are you an "official reviewer" since you get free samples of all the new carts on the market.

    I use a Supercard CF myself. One of the few diehard slot2 fans left. It's pointless for me to lose all GBA support, just to run Nintendo's web browser. Even that needs a slot2 cart anyway. I've already got a browser in the PSP, Wii, and PS3.

    DS compatibility is in fact better than GBA on this cart. Although, I wouldn't suggest it for newbies.

    I am a slot 2 fan too because they can load both types of game but I just need to know what type of cart to get. I was thinking supercard instead of M3 perfect but I can't find the supercard CF anywhere. >.>

    i hate supercard
    the compability for gba games is not really good (slowdown), and it can't even save sram normally,
    you need to save it manually through supercard menu from the game

    i would say, go with m3 perfect (lite preferably since it uses micro sd and you can switch the casing to gba compatible one)

    edit: fyi, most m3 perfect lite comes with 6 different casing, 5 for ds lite (different colours: black, white, navy, cyan, pink), 1 for gba / ds phat

    I am probably getting a M3 CF perfect because I want it for my GBA and Phat. I have no use for m3 lite since I don't have a lite. And I already have like 3 CF cards.
