    I have a R4DS which I love, but I'd like to get a slot 2 device for GBA backups, but also for the RAM for homebrew that starting to support it. And maybe even rumble.

    Any ideas on a good one? Also, I'd like it to sit flush in the DS.

    Thanks!

    Will the EZ Flash 3 in 1 work with the R4DS?

    Over there.
    Not flush with the DS though. Kinda sticks out just a touch.

    I am also in the market for both a slot-1 and a solid slot-2 device.

    I currently own an M3 Perfect which holds a 4GB SD card (non SDHC) but sticks out like sore thumb on my DS. However, it will fit nicely in my 2nd Gameboy Micro when I purchase either the Cyclo Evo or the SupercardDS One. Not sure if I should even wait for the M3 Real release. It is suppose to have SDHC compatibility so that does make it a contender.

    Since my slot-2 device is going to be used primarily for GBA games, I think an M3 Lite would be my best choice. It reports to have 100% GBA game support and uses microSD cards.

    Looks like you did research. You may want a Pro, though.

    I've got a 3-in-1, it's very cheap and works with every GBA game I've thrown at it (after patching with the EZ Flash client) even when the Supercard has issues.

    The only downside is that you can only store one game at a time in the NOR. But that's not really a problem for me, because I'm only really interested in one GBA game at a time. [​IMG]

    Most games will work in the PSRAM.

    A Pro only has 4 MB of RAM, which makes GBA gaming on it nearly useless.

    I had the same dilemma and decided on the EZFlash IV Lite Deluxe. So far, it's served every purpose that I've thrown at it. I store all my GBA games and use SNEmulDS with it. It doesn't include Rumble Pack or Real Time Clock and you have to patch the browser to use it, but it is perfect for GBA games.
