    My Supercard Mini SD will not enter the in game menu when I press the button combo the game seems to freeze until I let go of the buttons I have tried re installing firmware.

    Anyone know what could cause this?

    Copy your games and saves off the memory card then format it and put em back on and retry.

    Failing that try cleaning the cards pins both gab cart and memory card

    that hasn't worked either neither has changing the battery. I'm starting to think its dead.

    I'll list the issues.

    No in game button combos work nothing happens when pressed.
    When pressing the real time save combo the game freezes until I let go of the buttons.
    Also in game saves don't work (which is why I assumed changing the battery).

    Any other things that could cause this?

    P.S I have ordered another battery on the off chance the one I used is already dead.

    Your using a MicroSD to MiniSD Adapter aren't you? Try a proper MiniSD Card from what ive seen and personal experience the adapters 90% of the time are the cause

    Nope using SanDisk Mini SD I have a 2GB, 512MB and 64MB and none are working I have formatted with the SD formatting software, I have even tried a MicroSD in an adapter.

    I have even tried using a different GBA. I have had my Supercard for some time now maybe age has taken over.

    Well I gave up in the end found a Chinese site selling them so have ordered a few assuming they are fakes and probably wont last. I'm gonna order an EZ-Flash IV as well to try heard these are much better.

    Thanks for your help tho.

    They should do the job given that you dont need extreme speed, id recommend keeping a backup every now and then just in case
