    This is what I'm looking for in a GBA flash device-

    * something that can run on its own. I know some devices are made to load ROMs off a DS flash card, I don't want this. If it couldn't run in a GBA, then it's no good to me.

    * SD card support is preferred, either Micro or Mini. Internal memory is fine assuming the space included is suitable.

    * proper onboard RAM to run Mother 3, Castlevania, etc. I believe a lot of the DS Lite devices that load GBA ROms off the DS flash card lack sufficient RAM.

    * a device that sits flush with the DS Lite is highly preferred, but at this point I am willing to make an exception.

    * DS memory expansion is optional. Rumble is not needed in the device either.


    Feel free to direct me to retailer links for any devices you suggest so that I can see first hand.

    My research shows that most standalone GBA cards have either too little onboard RAM to be fully game compatible, or are insanely expensive(I googled the M3 Lite, very expensive).

    I found 2 alternatives that load straight from a slot 1 device. I wonder which one has the best GBA compatibility? The DS RAM expansion fo te AZflash is nice, but I don't need the rumble.
