Hello I am trying to get my supercard to work on my gameboy advance sp. It pulls up the UI for a split second then crashes and the screen stays white. I've tried downsizing my SD card from a 16gb card to a 2gb, formatting the sd as FAT, not FAT32. Just about everything I feel like. I am just stuck at what to do. Any help?

i am fairly sure theese old flashcarts, (the supercard gba ones) are too old to support sdhc, you probably have to get a NON HC card (meaning 2GB or less)
just formatting a card to a low capacity won't change the standart it uses

but i could be wrong

edit: doing a google search seems everywhere it says max sd card size is indeed 2gb, this is "translated" to "only supports non-hc sd cards"

Is it an microSDHC or just micro. I know that the hardware supports only low capacity cards so if it's a high capacity it likely won't work. Though for the sake of being thorough does the device play retail carts without issue?

any card above 2GB is SDHC, there where some 4gb non hc cards but these didn't follow the sd association rules
micro is just the phisical size, while sdhc is a standard on how the card works\talks with the device

I bought the cart because I didn't have any games for it. I'll get one of my friends to let me test it out with one of their retail carts.

And its nice that the 4GB nonhc cards work fine in nonhc devices
