    As the topic suggests....Im looking for a "lite" slot 2 flashcard, i want it primarily for playing gba games. I was wondering which one has the best compatability, and are there any that allow you to save like it was the real game cartridge? I have a supercard at the moment and the real time saving really annoys me [​IMG] Any ideas?

    Also would be a good idea if it could be used as a ram card for the ds browser as i just ordered my r4ds [​IMG]

    Thanks guys!

    I'd be interested in this too... do they still make GBA-only flashcards? Or has that ship sailed?

    Always on the move...
    I own a G6 & I haven't encountered a single rom that wouldn't boot or have graphic glitches. It supports real time saving through patching. I'm confident this cart has perfect gba compatibility. However, if you want to use this slot-2 cart in conjunction with a slot-1 device to browse the internet using Opera browser, then given there's still no patch for the G6 to act as a RAM extension (I doubt there will), then you should go either for an M3 or a Supercard.

    Only M3 Lite can be used for both GBA roms and NDS browser. It has perfect GBA compatibility and it saves games the way original carts do.

    would it be possible to use a Micro sd card that i use for slot 1...for slot 2 as well?

    meaning can i dump some clean GBA roms in my micro sd card which i use for m3 simply into a slot 2 CART?

    sorry for the noob questions

    What do you mean, exactly?

    Do you mean, for example, a MicroSD card with GBA roms on it inserted into a R4DS (slot 1) and booting to a M3 Lite with an empty memory card slot and then accessing roms from the slot 1? I don't think that will work.

    Or do you mean can you use the same micro SD card in both devices? As in when you're ready to play a GBA game, you take both carts out, swap out the MicroSD from the slot-1 device to the slot-2? I think that should work.

    I use a EZ-Flash 4 with a R4. No trouble with either so far. The ezf4 plays GBA games great and the R4 plays NDS great. Both the ezf4 and the R4 use microSD. I have a 1gb card in each, havent tried swaping it.

    hum, i don't know what to choose, i want to play both DS and GBA roms in my DS, but i don't if shoul buy EZ-Flash IV deluxe pack or M3 Lite Micro SD + Passcard 3 (the perfect one). both seems good choices, but ez-flash is more cheap
