    Today arrived my EzFlash IV Micro SD, and so, I wanted to put games on it, of course, so I just copied to the SD (in a folder called Ez-Flash or something like that).

    But, some games will load. Some games won't.
    No game will save.

    And some games won't load unless I press the L button while selecting them.

    Is my card defective? or I forgot to do something?

    What can I do?

    " so I just copied to the SD (in a folder called Ez-Flash or something like that)."

    In answer to your question yes you forgot to do something. GBA games need to be patched to run. The EZTeam provide a tool called EZ4client for this, there are others that will work.
    Do make sure you also have a saver folder on there and the blank save files are copied there, you usually do this by telling EZ4client to copy things directly to the microSD.
    Afraid I have not got around to putting together a full pack of software for the current EZ4s but the EZTeam have the basic version which should do

    When you press L and select you are forcing a certain type of reset, depending upon what kernel/hacks you are using.
