    Hello Everyone!

    I'm new to this forum, but I have been a gamer on and off since about 1978!
    Even though I am more familiar with older systems like the Atari 2600, I own and play NES, GBP, GBA, and GBM.

    I am fascinated with pirate multi-carts, and have examples on every system I own. Along those same lines, I have recently purchased flash carts like the Harmony for Atari 2600, and more recently the supercard mini sd for GBA. However, I find the supercard mini to be quite a bit more complicated setting it up than I was expecting.

    So, I was wondering if I could pay someone, send a micro SD, whatever, to set up all the software on the micro SD. I would like to have as many options as possible, save & cheat, being the most important. It also would be nice to be able to play movies on it. If the person doing it could also add game roms this would be great. The more the merrier.

    Hm, unfortunately the SC miniSD isn't the easiest to set up, and it really isn't the best GBA flash cart out there (but sadly unless you can find an EZ-Flash IV around somewhere it's just impossible to find anything else in this day and age). It's also important to know that with the SC MiniSD, it's best to use *actual* miniSD cards, not microSD cards with an adapter. These are hard to find even on Amazon, and you must be sure to only use cards 2 GB or below.

    I'm slightly inebriated right now so I think I'm just gonna focus on the main generic links that may help. However, I urge you to check out the PocketHeaven forums for a ton of fun emulators you can run on the GBA side of things. (the Supercard's built-in emulators are hacked versions of actual emulators and it's best to just make your own compilations for things like PocketNES and Goomba Color and such)

    Wow Dan, your the man. I just learned more in the last 5 minutes reading some of your information, then in the past 2 weeks! I havent found much good information out there on the Web, from those who speak decent English. The EZ-Flash IV is available on E-bay, but more than twice as much as I paid for this. I really am ignorant when it comes to whats new. From what I read so far, it looks like its going to be a bitch trying to do this myself. That's why I was hoping to get some one to load a card up for me, and I could eventually change, or add new games myself in the future. I really don't want to have to figure out a bunch of frustrating stuff. I just want it to play some games like a multi-cart, except I pick the games, and have the ability to save & or cheat. Should I consider the EZ-flash IV, try to get some one to load a card, or just give up?
