    A real miniSD card would be better than a micro-to-mini adapter, but let's hope for the best.

    You will need to download the latest 2.71 patching software from http://eng.supercard...soft_minisd.htm and use that to patch any games that you put on the card, GBA or NDS. When you first get the card, check your firmware version by holding L+R upon bootup and pressing A a few times. If it's 1.63, upgrade to 1.7 first before skipping ahead to the latest 1.85 version.

    I'll link you to the latest Supercard guide that I have available, which explains various patching options - http://dl.dropbox.co..._Guide_v1.1.pdf

    EDIT: I forgot to add, with the patching software, do NOT export directly to your SD card, as that's known to cause problems. Instead, output to your hard drive, and copy-and-paste the patched files to the SD card manually.

    EDIT 2: http://www.pocketheaven.com/ph/wiki/index.php?title=Supercard might be of use for the stuff that the Supercard site's FAQ page doesn't mention.

    Yes i would use miniSD but i cant find it where to buy and i cant transfer stuff from laptop to it (dont have money to spend anymore on the card readers)

    So micro to mini adapter is my only choice.

    Thanks for the help,i will read them now and try that tomorrow when i get it AND inform you.

    EDIT: Also what will go wrong if i add 1.85,instead of adding 1.7?
    Because i will bring only micro sd with one game inside,and the GBA SP.
    The dude who is selling it to me,is gonna bring adapter so we will try it there and its on the street. I just need to make sure that the card is working with my micro sd.

    So i dunno if i should add 1.85 to my micro and update it tommorow when i try it out.

    Sorry,noob to the GBA and flashing...
