    100% the only game i have tried and doesnt work in Opera Web Browser.

    All the GBA games i have tried work, but i havent tried alot, proally 90%.

    None using a 40X Scandisk 1Gb MicroSD.

    apparently Ultimate Spider-man doesn't work either.

    On the GBA front I have only tried a few games personally.

    Mario kart super ciruit had a bit of slow down but FFIV and the 2 zeldas work fine, you just need to do (L+R+SELECT+A) to back up the saves.

    What games have you tried KINGOFNOOBS?

    From my experience with the supercard sd which I hear is the same as all the other newer supercards, these gba do not work for me.

    Certain files of yoshis island do not run
    Jazz jackrabbit - white screen
    earthworm jim - white screen
    mario and luigi suffers from major in game slowdowns, not attributed to the speed of sd card used.

    for nds games that do not work, tony hawks and ultimate spiderman are the only two that have not worked for me.

    All DS games work 100% with no lag. This is expecting that you have fast mini/micro/SD media 60X or higher. No complaints about the SuperCard DS support as its top notch.

    GBA is a different story as every GBA game I have tried has slowdown or the graphics blur in and out: Mario and Luigi SuperStar Saga, GTA, all the Super Mario Advance Series, Metroid, Kingdom Hearts and a few more. I mean ALL the big releases don't work right or have major slowdown with more then 1 person on the screen!

    Fifthelement you dont even HAVE supercard lite according to you. i have 40X Scandisk 1GB and i can run the Castlevania Video with no lag.

    All all those games you just said work for me perfectly on SCL. You dont even have SCL so your opinion is invalid. According to you, you just have a DS Phat and Supercard MiniSD.

    No I don't but my friend in China does. He has a normal SanDisk 12X vanilla microSD and IT HAS LAG in the Castlevania video, it chops up a bit but plays much better then old SuperCards before it. Like I said the SuperCard team has found a way to get normal "slow" media to play better on the SuperCard Lite. Although there still is lag as sneef even said in his comments. When using a 60X Ultra II or higher there is no lag.

    And what you're saying about the GBA support is BS as he has the same games I do and the first three GBA games he tested were GTA, M&L SS, and Metroid!

    No one gives a crap about your friend. We dont even know if hes real. I have it and it plays perfect on my 40X Scandisk. FifthElement unless YOU have it which you dont, dont say anything. Your 'friend' in china is probally not even real. Just using him as a excuse to say crap about SCL.

    Hate to tell you this but thats not 40X! Its only 12X or 1.8MB/sec! Show's how much you know about microSD. The SanDisk Ultra II is 60X or 10MB/sec while those normal cards run at microSD spec of 12X per www.microsd.org.

    I know GBA support is poor but I can play quite a lot of GBA games on my Supercard Mini SD with no problems as well.

    EDIT by jumpman17: Removed stuff about the flames.

    FithE1ement did your friend use the SD lite software as that sorted out the lag for most of the games. Also you seem to post negative comments about the SD lite even though you haven't used one personally.

    You just seem to me like a SD lite hater.

    I'm not a SuperCard hater I just was hoping for more with the SuperCard Lite thats all. I wanted perfect GBA support (or at least better) and diff colors. I will still prolly buy one and upgrade to the DS Lite. I was waiting to see how the SC Lite was before upgrading to the DS Lite as I can't stand things that stick out. I will prolly still buy it since it has great DS support. I'm just pissed that they didn't fix anything that was wrong with the old version. I love my SuperCard as I will love the SC Lite. Its kinda like being a parent and being disappointed in your kid but you never stop loving them as you just expect more out of them.

    I will be getting a SC Lite with the SanDisk 1GB Ultra II, and then picking up a white DS Lite.

    Whatever... you start acting 'normal' when everyone knows you were lying. LMAO. Anyway to the thread starter. Supercard Lite is a great bang for your buck. I suggest you pick one up and a 2GB MicroSD when they come out.

    They did fix some of it. If they were going to get better GBA compatibility they would need to use different hardware and the Supercard would cost more. They have succeeded in making this their fastest Supercard to date and GBA roms play faster because of this and they've also reduced the size to fit in the DS Lite flush. How much more do you expect for $5 more than the regualr Supercard.

    And I was never lying as I had put up one of the first reviews on the SC Lite. I have a friend who is living and working in China. I've known him since I was a kid and we talk all the time. I was the one who started him on the SuperCard in the first place a year ago. He loves his SC Lite but hes disappointed with the lack of new features as I was.
