Such a thing as a micro SD GBA cart?

    So I decided to get an R4 but in my eagerness, I decided to buy a 1gb micro SD just in case and when I bought my R4 in Hong Kong, turns out they package a 1gb Micro SD as well. Then I was wondeing. Is there a GBA flash cart that takes micro SDs? Only one I can think of is the G6 lite but I thought it would be a bit too pricey in just using it to run GBA games.

    G6 Lite uses NAND flash memory. Not microSD. For microSD, get a M3 Lite, Supercard Lite or EZ-Flash IV

    Supercard Lite is pretty good.

    He wants GBA games, SC Lite sucks monkey balls with GBA games.

    Get M3 Lite, it's a quality flashcard. You can get it for 65 bucks at www.hopebuy.com.

    For DS backup, but what about GBA backup? I remember the supercard not to be so compatible with GBA games (slowdowns, no RTC,...).

    Bear in mind microSD to miniSD adaptors exist (similar to the microSD to SD adaptors) and that a simple (or not so simple if you have to repurpose a cart) case swap (you can even file the case down and attach a ribbon) means lite carts work in a normal DS/SP (I have used a EZ4 lite in my SP and DS for several months now without issue).

    I thought that the Lite cards are too small to fit into the gba slot

    They are! Read what Fast actually said; you have to change the outer case of the lite cartridge by taking the circuit board out of it and putting it into a larger GBA sized shell to use it in a GBA/SP/GBM//DS Phat.

    The GBA replacement shell, by the way, CAME with my M3 Lite Perfect.

    M3 Lite Pro is junk for GBA compatibility as well, so pick up an M3 Lite Perfect. If it doesn't come with an original GBA cartridge replacement, you can buy one seperately for $2 at Gamesection.ca. It's a simple phillips head unscrew, swap, and screw.
