    You would need a specialized loader, which I don't think exists...
    Sorry.

    A large chunk of roms don't work, although I got the Sonic Rush E3 demo to work, only once I had a cartridge inserted in the top.

    No, you cannot. After the Max Media Player/Dock, Datel made sure to design their cards in such a way that commercial games could not work on them.

    The max media dock was great for Rom dumping.

    I'm pretty sure a rom loader could be made. Just no one has bothered.

    Actually, I try actually create a loader for this cart(along time ago). But due to the nature of the cart, I could not access the RAM(if it had any,I dont remember). So I used a paging system to load the rom in chunks, it was ok-ish and had horrible compatibility and severe slow-downs when the rom attempted to read/write.I am extremely sorry but, I will not release it because it WILL be used for piracy.
