Default Looking for a GBA flash card.

I am looking for a good GBA flash card to use, but it seems I can not find any for sale anymore. Is there none left available for purchase?

I wont recommend any store directly but you might watch out for "SuperCard". There is a SuperCard which works with MiniSD and it worked quite well for me, tho it slow downs if there is excessive action on the screen.

I have this: http://www.realhotstuff.com/m3-sd-perfect-p-75.html which is capable of playing GBA games (you do have to patch them first with the included patcher)

No you don't. It will add features like the 'real time save' (savestate-like) save feature, or reseting to the menu (or fixing save problems that some games may have), but many games actually will work ok without patching.

I know, I have one.

*edit*
I should add also that you would need to make a gamename.dat (ie, if the rom is Awesome Mario Bros Game.gba, the DAT file should be "Awesome Mario Bros Game.dat") file in the GAMESAVE directory so it will save the save to a file on rebooting the unit. You can just copy an existing one, also there should be one in the M3 Game Manager's directory that is blank.

If you're looking for something less than $70, though, DealExtreme has the EZ-Flash IV for about 30 bucks, and a mini-sd to go with it is as cheap as $15 for a 2GB(or a microsd with a minisd adapter, anyways).

That is the thing about the M3...it's a good piece of kit but it IS expensive.

Review of the EZ-Flash IV: http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=32250

I don't have one, but I have heard decent things about it and the review here is good. Sounds like GBA compatibility is good, and if you ever want to get into DS stuff you can use it for that as well (in conjunction with a PassMe 2 or one of the various NoPass cards such as Datel's MaxMedia Launcher). Keep in mind that it doesn't have a Realtime Clock, so Pokemon games may not be happy with you.
