    I ordered my M3 lite for my NDS to get GBA support, and to hold more MP3s and some video (since my slot1 R4 was full with games)

    the M3 came with a GBA size case as well, and it made me wonder if it would also boot up if I stuck it in my GBAsp

    the package it came it made it sound like it should work in the GBA but mine doesn't
    is there any kind of special trick or configuration I need to do to make it work?

    It should boot into GBA mode, IF it's not a M3 Professional but a Perfect

    Both the professional and perfect will boot fine in GBASP in gba mode. That's why that case is there. The professional just has limited memory so the gba games that actually work are reduced.

    that's what I thought

    Mine doesn't boot at all in my GBA SP

    it works 100% fine in my DS

    has anyone actually gotten it to work for sure?

    I've updated to the latest firmware(v32) and still no dice)

    works fine on my gba with the case so I have no idea why it wouldnt...

    hopefully this gets resolved soon as now I have to hold back from purchasing a gba sp

    I have an old M3 Perfect SD (redesign) that no longer loads GBA games [​IMG]

    As the subject of M3L Perfect in GBA systems, it works like a charm on v30 firmware.
