    You must have not looked at the site.

    Realhotstuff no longer has them in stock. I'm looking for one as well.

    Look at the date, it was from 2010. It was true then. As to whether if it is still true that they still sell it is not a real concern. Finding seller of any product in all accounts is time limited, it means they stop selling something eventually.

    I found it, and just bought one for $33, some one there cheaper which I didn't see (stupid of me). Go to dhgate.com and there are a couple sellers with them.

    Weird how the card requires mini sd. I guess that's the "thing" in china.

    What else would you have wanted it to require?

    Also, what do you plan on using it for?

    Simple answer to this is: Don't. Even if you get an official Supercard the memory's clocked too low to run GBA games at fullspeed.

    Warrior522: I believe microSD cards weren't even released back when they made the Supercard miniSD.

    What if he didn't plan on playing GBA games?

    Hm, thanks for the link dude. I think I damaged my SC miniSD beyond repair lately, so I might be interested in getting a replacement.

    I mostly used it for old DS homebrew, especially things that required a slot-2 card with GBA compatibility (like SnezziDS for instance).

    EDIT: regarding mini-vs-micro, miniSD had a solid year or two of prominence before microSD was introduced, but once microSD came out, miniSD kinda fell into obsolescence. The SC miniSD just happened to be manufactured during that 1-2 year "sweet spot" which ended up being a bad thing.
