    I just got a Cyclo, and it works great. I would like to start playing some GBA roms, but I know I cant with out a slot 2 device. Which do you recommend? And does it run the games from the slot 1, or do the roms run from slot 2?

    I have both the EZ Flash 3 in 1 and the Ewin Expansion Pak. Both are great but the EEP is a little cheaper.

    I got my 3in1 from Gameyeeah and my EEP from Sky2k.

    Check the reviews for both of these here:

    3in1 Scroll down to the 3 in 1 section

    The EZ flash 3 in 1 is all you need and it's easy to use, I got mine free from gaming lagoon (below in sig) but you can also buy it very cheaply

    Is there a GBA Flash cart that can be played from microsd chips?

    I'm not aware of such a cart's existence but if I can't find one, I'll be going with a EZFlash 3 in 1. I just really want to be able to play some GBA games on a GBA, ya know?

    M3 Lite Perfect is using microSD up to 2 GB..
    However, you have to flash GBA games on the microSD, and it doesn't run GBA games from slot 1!

    Oh yeah, and I would also like to know about cheating function of GBA carts. Does CycloDS+Slot-2 device support AR or GS cheats?

    No, it doesn't support either of those formats.

    m3 lite perfect sounds most like what you're looking for (I have one paired with a cyclo as well)

    you do need to load the games onto the cart via the game manager, but it's a pretty simple process

    hey ToniPlutonij i got a question for you. sorry to the original poster of the topic but i needa ask this: You said that "M3 Lite Perfect is using microSD up to 2 GB..
    However, you have to flash GBA games on the microSD, and it doesn't run GBA games from slot 1!" Could you explain this to me? I'm getting my M3 lite in a couple of days and that statement made me kinda scared. I got the GBA games, the cheat files, and M3 Game Manager v36a. What will i need to do from this point on?

    Again, my apologies to the TP but it needed to be asked. I hope i did not steal your topic or anything. Sorry if i did

    It's not anything to be worried about. microSD cards are too slow to run GBA games from; DS games have a lower read speed, so it's (usually) fine to run games from microSDs for those, but NOR (the stuff in GBA (flash) carts) is much faster, so the M3 Lite has to flash the games to NOR before you can play them. Takes a couple of minutes tops, you'll survive.

    Minutes? I've got a M3 Lite and play GBA roms all the time with it. The largest GBA roms are 32 MB and they load up in about 15 seconds, tops.

    Ah, my bad, it must just load them to PSRAM. Well, even less of a problem, then.
