I have the ez4lite which takes microsd for my ds lite.I quite fancy buying a GBA micro since they are cheap now.Is it possible to fit the ez4lite in to a micro?I saw that ugly emugen converter ez4 were selling to allow you to use the ez4lite in the micro but im wondering if i can sand down or mod my 2 spare ez4lite carts so they will fit in the micro?Or is is it simply the hardware of the ez4lite wont work in the micro?If its possible to fit the cart will it get stuck?any input would be great thanks.

The only reason an EZ4 lite wouldn't work in a GBA of any variety is the size of the cart case. It's too short to make contact w/ the pins on a GBA or "fat" DS. If you're realy desperate to use it on a GBA I suppose you could get a cheap GBA game out of the bargin bin, gut it and then mod the case to accept the PCB from your EZ4 lite. Seems like more effort then it's worth to me when a GBA flash cart can be had for less then $50.

The MiniSD variation is for the GBA/SP.

It will not fit, period, but possibly if you take off the covers? But I don't think you wanna do that, haha.

You mean the normal EZ4 doesn't fit into the GB Micro?

EZ 4 fit with your GBA/SP/NDS
EZ 4 Lite fit with your NDSL
EZ 4 Lite Deluxe fit with your NDSL (run DS and GBA ROM)
EZ 4 Lite Compact fit with your NDSL(Only run DS ROM)

No, using the casings that come with the EZ4 Lite won't let it work. As someone sad, it isn't the size of a normal gba cart. I wish they included a case that was standard size so it can be used in GBA and DS Phats, i'd be all over it then.

    The 512gb has been enough for me atm

    In the EU we get 2 year warranty, but if we open a device the warranty gets void, so I'll just stick with getting a bigger micro sd card.

    I'm out of the loop with new hardware thingies, and that includes transfer speeds.

    I do know SD cards have some new standard, with extra pins, and they're freaky fast.

    Compared to when I was last keeping up to date, that is.

    What is this lag, it shouldn't be lag between when you press a button and the corresponding action on-screen, people make a ruckus for less than that

    What lag?

    It's the loading time.

    Not a lag on button presses.

    Portal 2 takes 10-17 seconds longer to load from an SD card than from the internal SSD storage.

    I just wanted to be clear that I had ruled out the lag on button presses. I have reasonable intelligence
