Hello. So I've been trying to get the Everdrive to work with my Gameboy player, but it will constantly freeze up and the audio/picture will start to get distorted.
Just wondering if there is a solution to this or should I suspect that the Everdrive needs to be replaced.

---------------------
things ive tried to fix it.
---------------------
-Use no-intro rom's
-Try multiple SD cards
-Try multiple Gameboy players
-Clean pins on Everdrive and Gameboy player
-Disabled quick load
-Tested diagnostics (everything was green or said ok)
-Tried loading Gameboy interface in action replay and swiss
-Use older Everdrive bios
-Use different version of gameboy interface GBISR and GBIHF

Main thing I haven't been able to do, is use an official gameboy player disc since I don't own one.

-----------------------------
Some games I've tried that didn't work. (other games have had same problem also)

I had the exact same issue with two EverDrives I bought from the official Amazon Canada store.  I tried them in three separate GB Players and it also happened in some AGS-001 consoles. I returned both and got a second hand one which works fine. I think the new X5s have QC issues right now.

Dang. Well if that's the case I think my best option is going to be returning for repairs/replacement, since finding a older second hand one I think would be kinda difficult.
But yea I also just got mine from Amazon Canada.

Interesting! Perhaps it's limited to a batch that went to Amazon, not sure... it was weird because it was consistent only with the GB Player.  My DS Lite and GBA SP had almost no issues, except for with a couple of games where it would constantly happen.  Mario Kart Super Circuit was probably the one that froze no matter what system.

Good luck with the repair/replacement process!  I had a bit of a hard time getting anyone from the support department to acknowledge it was an issue with the cart which is why I returned to amazon and bought a second one before also returning it.  Hopefully they're able to resolve it for you.

Rev. B has always had problems on a GameCube GameBoy Player

I now have a Rev B that works fine, and if they do have known issues with some then I think that there should be a disclaimer from Krikzz and his resellers on their product pages. But to be fair certain games as mentioned (Mario Kart SC almost immediately, Banjo Kazooie was another) were almost guaranteed to crash in any system. It just happened more often on the GB Player with all games. The used one I have is perfection thankfully :)

Well I've returned the one I got from amazon and made an order from Stoneagegamer, so will see how it runs when it comes in and I will give an update if it works or not.
