    Plug the usb cord into the card and leave it


    (EZ4 is the same way in most cases(mine came charged though))

    hmm i have no earth idea why it would be doing that other than

    1. Place the cart in the gba
    2. Hook Up the cable USB to card
    3. Open Software and try flashing a game


    If it say's anything at all report back (even what screen it freezes on)

    http://www.gbaelink.net/

    But you could try some other software till you can figure out the problem (it may work)

    Littlewriter
    ez3 Software
    Efa Linker

    I can't remember any of the link's at hand sorry

    the drivers are for xp, if you got 98 or vista then the software won't work, you will have to download the correct drivers off the website.

    your out of luck start asking family or friends if they got a comp you can use, it does run from a thumb drive.
