    I was looking for a GBA flashcart, but I only want one that works on the GBA alone. I want to be able to play games on my GBA without requiring a DS flashcart or anything like that.

    My brother had a SuperCard SD when they first came out--is there anything better than that available? I know the Final Fantasy games lagged.

    M3 Perfect if you can find one.

    Do not get the M3 Pro or the EZ-Flash IV Compact; both of those carts have limited or no GBA functionality.

    [​IMG] I'm at my wits end... i got the EZ-Flash IV ($40+) and for the life of me i cannot get the freak to work properly in my GBA SP!!! I googled and youtubed and GBATemped ad nauseum and still i can not get it to work.

    I get the darth vader screen and managed to change the language to english after half an hour, even used the client to transfer my roms - but when i go to play a game all i get is a white screen.

    I am not a n00b by any means and the fact that i cannot figure this out is making me C R A Z Y [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    any help would be terrific.....

    I thought the M3 slot 2 only supported 2 gb. What 4 GB mini SD card works?

    The standard sized EZ-Flash IV is a great cart. It can run Mother 3. The downisde is that it uses Mini SD which is an uncommon US card format, you'll need to find a Micro SD with adapter.

    The farther back you go the more expensive things get.

    Why doesn't it say how big of flash bleepbloop is? well I guess I could look up the part # on that AMD flash chip. I'm guessing that it isn't very big. $70 sheesh. That EMS cart is a much better deal. I don't remember EMS making a cart witha USB port built straight into it. Who plays this stuff anyway. My GBC + flash carts have been just sitting in the back of a drawer for numerous years.

    @abbadab

    What kiind of flash media are you using?
    My friend has the EZ IV and he tried to use a microSD with an adapter and we couldnt get it to work for the life of us. We ended up purchasing a cheap miniSD card and that solved the problem. For some reason the EZ IV would not recognize the microSD even though it had the adapter.

    Just figured I would mention this to possibly save you some time.

    The cheapest place I could find for the EZ-Flash IV was at NDSCardSale. $24.
