    Hey peeps.

    I have both the X-Rom and EZFA but i cant find any drivers compatible with windows 7 so at the moment the cards are just sitting there doing nothing :-(.

    Can any one help with some compatible drivers or give me some advice on how to get these working again.

    Many Thanks.

    Azel.

    p.s. Or can some one suggest a good flash cart that uses SD cards for storage.

    I doubt you'll be able to get the EZFA running without using XP with SP2 or lower. It was discontinued a long time ago, struggled with some 64-bit processors and I'm not sure anyone got it working with Vista, let alone Windows 7. So I think you're out of luck for that one [​IMG]

    Try XP Mode with Windows 7, it should work, but I'm not sure to what extent.

    The rest of your post, I have no idea
    But as for some good cards, if you mean normal SD
    then M3 Lite (slim)
    Or if you mean MicroSD then
    M3 Lite if you can fine the GBA version like I did.

    It's very difficult to find slot 2 M3 Perfect carts these days (they were discontinued more than a year ago IIRC), and they are pretty expensive if you can find one. An EZ-Flash IV is probably a better bet at this point.

    I found one for 30$, but I bought mine like 2 years ago and the site I bought it from stopped selling flashcards a few months ago, so that's no help.
    I would go with the EZ-Flash, I don't have one, but from what I heard they are a lot easier to find and a lot cheaper

    This is the only store left that carries the M3 Perfect Lite:

    It's pricey, though. Unless you're desperate for the real-time-clock (given the age, it might also be necessary to swap the battery before RTC actually works, anyway), the EZ-Flash IV is much easier to come by and quite a bit cheaper.

    I love my EZFA and still use it today, btw the client program EZFA103E does work with XP service pack III.
    The menu is clean and the load times are instant.
