    Yea, I didn't understand anything in the other topic I saw. What's the best GB flashcart that is generally easy to use, and what site can I get it on? I of course want to play those rom's I've downloaded of all the older games on my brick or GBC. I also will probably want a GBA one, so yea. I'm completely new to this, but these things interest me. I always love learning more about electronic hardware.

    All of the GBA slot 2 cards won't work in the brick Gameboy (AFAIK).

    I have a GBA and a GBA SP to use the GBA card with. I have almost every Nintendo handheld there is.

    visoly made a series of gb/gbc flash carts (flash linker series). I've still got a few of them lying about as well as their gba ones. good times. [​IMG]

    they work using the parallel port on your pc, but thankfully the image sizes were so small that transfer times weren't that bad. I'll take some photos of what I have when I get back from being out of town.

    I forgot which site I saw it on, but I saw a GB Bridge for only 20 bucks. I'll go searching again soon.

    http://www.gameboy-advance.net/flash_card/...2-powerstar.htm

    I found this listed on the Gameboy-advance.net website, though. It's the GBA EZFlash II 1GBit PowerStar DevKit. Though the price tag is a little much, it looks like the easiest one to use, and it's got lots of options. Does that look like a good one? I think I want it. I'll go find it somewhere.

    And is there, maybe, software out there that's able to convert a .gb rom to a .gba file? The original gameboy games could always be played on a GBA... That way I wouldn't have to go out and buy the bridge too.

    You can use Goomba. Ir's a GB emulator for GBA.

    No, Goomba runs on your GBA and let's you play a lot of GB/C games, saving you a lot of the hassle and trouble of finding and buying a GB Bridge or a GB flashcart.

    I think this is the GB Bridge you're talking about. I'm not 100% positive since I don't know anything about dumping old GB/GBC games.
