    Okay, so lets say I take my Supercard Lite and fit it into an old GBA enclosure and cram it into my SP. Will it boot up GBA content?

    Does it currently? If so, what do you think your mod will do?

    What a cryptic response..

    Currently, yes I suppose it does run GBA content on my DS. But being pretty new to this whole thing, I wouldn't have been suprised if there were a reason this was not possible on GBA-SP with this adapter.

    Currently, no such actions have been taken. I am trying to determine who else has done this and what success -if any- they had experienced.

    I am not trying to be "smart" here, or flaunt anything. I would simply appreciate some input from anyone with experience, and who could give me a concrete yes or no as to the probable success of this endeavour BEFORE I go dremmeling an old GBA cartridge. Yes, I know I could buy a simple GBA adapter, yes I know the SC-Lite was made for the DS.

    If this question has previously been asked, I apologize, but my search yielded few results on this topic of relevance, and none that answered my question. Thanks in advance.

    Yes, it would work if you could somehow get it in the GBA, I'd like to see this really. I have a EZ Flash 4 Dlx, I just use a gameshark to play on my gba, but that gets bulky.
    edit: Oh, I thought you meant modding the gba casing itself, not an old gba cart case. It still should work.

    It's been done. IIRC one of the Lite flashcarts comes with a GBA cart-sized case you can swap into, I just can't for the life of me remember which brand...
    [Edit] It was the G6 Lite. Which raises a good point; because the supercard Lite has the microSD slot on the top of the cart you won't be able to get to the slot, and will have to remove the large GBA housing every time you want to change the card.

    Yes. from a hardware standpoint it is possible. The pins and board line up fine if you situate it inside the GBA cart right. Biggest concern is having regular access to the microsd card slot.

    So the general consensus is that this will probably work, huh? Cool. Well I'll give er a go. Let you all know how it works out.

    Nothing that some tools can't fix. I might not look all that nice, but being orginal will get the job done.

    I've done this with my M3 Lite. Just cut off some edges of the flash cart, attach a string to the cart so you can pull it out of the GBA and you're set.

    This is great when I've been using my DS and decide I want to convience (because it's so much smaller) of using my GBA Micro.
