Not recognised in OS X ;)
Other than that, none I have come across. The card reader that I got with mine has just died though, just stopped working during data transfer.

When playing MD roms from the card today, there have been a few occasions that the card can't be read, or when loading a save state the game crashes.
I've just got it to restart after about 20 minutes of No File Found! and it's wiped my Shadow Dancer game save  >:(
And now it's there again... Weird.

OK, my GA330 is now not recognising ANY files on the SD card, giving a No File Found error message even after reformatting the card. It's incredibly frustrating as it was working fine yesterday morning.
Any ideas?

Oh well this is some bad news...  :-\
Hope you find a solution

As before, as soon as I get frustrated and post on here it starts working again...  ???  ;D
Looks like it maybe a software problem. Playing Shadow Dancer, the save games disappeared and when I quit the game the No File Found message appeared again. I don't think it can be a problem with the actual card reader, as it still shows that the SD is inserted, just that there is no file on it. Perplexed.

And now, nothing again. FFS, this is so infuriating!

Tried reformatting. I have a few other cards knocking about, so I'll try another. The card works fine in my HTC Hero (using that to copy files as my card reader broke!)

Is anyone else experiencing similar issues?

I have a lot of sound issues in the GBA emulator that are not there on my a320
in particular advance wars and the Pokemons
the gba emulator on my ga330 is a huge disappointment

Does someone here had any issues with the power adapter? I haven't tested it yet but I heard that it have the same problem as the A320 power adapters. Does someone can confirm this for me, please?

I have no need to use the power adapter, it's two pin. I just use the USB charge.

Yes, you can use it. This was a false alarm that someone has said for me. I've used mine for two times since of when I received mine GA330 on my house and everything went normal here. :)

In some GBA games, since the 1.1 firmware updates, the sound is sloppy and sometime got a late on the action ...  :'(

I have a charger from a motorola phone that fits and works perfectly - i believe the chargers themselves were a problem, which might explain why my new units dont have them.  as far as i can tell - any USB power outlet will work with the included USB cables

The Charger works for me..
The GA330 isnt recognized in Windows 7 / 64 bit.But it works on 32 bit.
The LCD Screen is poor.. but well its a cheap handheld, well worth the price.

So has anyone else had any problems with the memory card not being recognised? Do I have a duff machine?
Any news on official exports with english text support?
