    Hi all. Are there any slot 2 programs available that are capable of backing up Gameboy Color saves?

    No. Gameboy color games use a lower voltage than gameboy advanced games, and the DS hardware does not know how to change the voltage.

    I've got an old GB linker somewhere that's able to do it via a parallel port, but not on the DS I'm afraid, no.

    I wonder if there is a way to do it with the GBA?

    Ah, I figured as much. I know about that GB Linker device, looks like I might just have to drop some change for one of those. Thanks for your answers.
