    I have a DS and a GBA Micro, and was searching around for a good GBA flashcart (I have M3 Real for my DS). I want to be able to use my GBA flashcart in my DS for some occasions, and after some searching found the expansion pack that M3 makes for the M3 I have.

    On the website I am planning to buy from it says:

    What's included:

    1 x GBA Expansion Pack (black lite sized)

    1 x white lite sized case

    1 x GBA sized case


    which leads me to believe that this will not only work to play GBA games on my DS, but it will also fit and work in a regular GBA.

    I was wondering if anyone here has any experience with this.

    That and the fact you'll essentially be putting a blank cart into a GBA.

    Not thinking properly tonight.

    Edit: might buy an M3 lite and the GBA expansion pack for the GBA sized case.

    M3 GEP uses SDRAM, you can flash all you like, doesn't mean your going to be able to play on a GBA/SP/micro.

    The EZ-Flash IV is the cheapest solution for a GBA cart, right now. It doesn't have real-time-clock, but other than that it's fine.
