    What do you mean by modern system? XP? Vista? 7?

    Anyway, for those old parallel port flasher, the older the better, you should try with windows XP, maybe in Win98 compatibility mode (right click on the software ".exe")

    You might also want to check your bios settings (Something called ECP/EPP I know it can sometimes makes the parallel port works faster, and sometimes not at all depending on what you plug in).

    That is cool, I have an original Game Boy in mint condition in my collection & It would be neat to have a flash cartridge for it. :)
    I don't have any real experience with Game Boy flash cartridges pre Game Boy Advance & I wish I could say that I did.

    I'm Sorry that I can't help you but I do hope you get it working again Jetowa.

    They are no longer in production. So they are rare now. You won't find one unless it's from someone who is willing to part with it.

    I saw other cards available though. For instance this GB Smart Card USB 64Mb... You might want to consider it:

    Ive seen the GBC modded with a frontlight out of a SP AGS-001, looks good...or you can go old school and go with a backlit DMG...Here's one I modded:

    The Bung cards or the emerger themselves were over $100, I believe Flash memory was really expensive back then...
    Because these cards are not mass produced, (unlike the current DS scene, sigh) they are priced likewise. I personally think that it's a very good price considering what it is capable of doing.

    I am waiting to receive some money so that I could pick one up for myself.

    Yellow Game Boy I used a Backlight Kit from http://store.kitsch-...m/product/ledx3
    It has a great contrast with the extra hex inverter installed.

    Cool, that's exactly what I wanted to use. I was torn between that and a GBASP frontlight. I still dunno what would be better, but I'll probably buy a white one from Kitsch-Bent as it'll probably take a while to find a broken GBASP screen anyway (I should have one somewhere, but who knows where I chucked it).
