    I can't seem to find any proper tutorials on how to set this thing up correctly lol, I'm mostly just having trouble with getting themes to work right? and with getting certain games to work like Yoshi's island. I managed to get Super Mario Advance 1,2 and 4 working and Sword of Mana by renaming the roms to SMA 1,2,4 and SOM. Frankly I'd rather just leave them the way I had them as this messes up my naming pattern and looks tacky. I originally had the roms named Sword of Mana.gba and Super Mario Advance.gba etc. I was under the impression I could just drag and drop the roms right onto the card and be on my way, which for the most part is the case! Also how do I get emulators to work on this? I have tried finding guides on that as well, I managed to get a GB.gba and GBC.gba rom using goomba front, the GB.gba works fine the GBC.gba says something about a PSRAM I think that theres not enough ram?

    Any hoot sorry for the rant guys, my brother got me this for xmas and it finally showed up so as you can imagine my excitement when I got it, any help would be terrific as always thanks! :D

    Afraid you will have to live with tacky for those games. I have never see Sword of Mana give people problems though.

    No drag and drop, not sure where would have given you that impression. The only things that will drag and drop are those games with no saves/password saves (a surprising amount and surprising titles). The EZTeam released a program to help patch, though there are alternatives. I am in a bit of a rush right now so I will have to link http://gbatemp.net/threads/2015-ez-flash-iv-is-it-real-and-any-good.409573/#post-5956107 and leave it at that

    Themes. They are built into the loader and if you want a new one you have to flash one of the relevant loader. For the microSD version this probably means you are building it and I am not sure what the current preferred method is, however if you just want a nice skin then people seem to like clearlooks and they have been built for the latest loaders

    GBC sounds like it is too large -- is it over 16 megs? Rebuild the set in chunks smaller than 16 megs. Or you can do ones smaller than 32 if you want to burn it to the NOR (why I don't know but to each their own) and not have that available for those larger than 128Mbit/16megabyte games.
    Most emulators for the GBA have their own custom build methods -- some are as basic as sticking it at the end of the ROM, others will want full built clients. In most cases I would suggest DS emulators if you have a DS and DS flash cart but the GBA ones do OK for 8 bit and older.
    Some emulators have trouble saving with the EZ4, http://ezflash.sosuke.com/viewtopic.php?f=12&t=12660 and http://ezflash.sosuke.com/viewtopic.php?f=12&t=2801
