Does it work with the Ad Adapter to play GBA Roms on the SNES/SFC which is probably the same Cartridge with another name?

All those are GBA inside an SNES cart just taking the controller input and thats it. If these carts behave fine, it will work.

That would be a reason for me to buy the Everdrive GBA because my EZ Flash IV Card doesn't work with the AD Adapter.

Thank you!

Compatibility with games is excellent and the Everdrive runs fine on it. If you have a Super Retro Trio or Retro Duo, the console will output composite to the TV through the native outputs, ie you don't need to use the A/V mini cable that comes with the adapter like you would on a real SNES.

The Super Retro Advance adapter does not set the Game Boy Player flag, meaning that video carts will also work. Please bear in mind that the video carts already look like ass at 12fps and 160p with heavy compression artifacts, and will look worse on a TV display.

One minor compatibility issue is if software enters sleep mode, it will lock up the Super Retro Advance and you will need to reset the game. You will want to disable sleep mode on the Goomba and PocketNES emulators, as well as any compatible GBA software, when playing on the Retro Advance Adapter.

Another minor issue is that GBA games have no compensation or "safe zone" for overscan since the portable screen is fixed and the Super Retro Trio upscales the games to 240p over composite. So if you're playing on a tube TV, it may cut off score, text, or status bars displayed on the top or bottom edge of the screen. Also the GBA has a 3x2 ratio while analog TVs have a 4x3 ratio, resulting in ever so slightly squished picture, but the effect is negligible. Overall, the picture looks great scaled to native 240p resolution, and appears larger than the Game Boy Player on a screen.
