    Hi, I have a Flash 2 Advance for my nintendo SP, can anyone tell me if it will work on the DS to play GBA games? I just ordered a DS and I am deciding if I should get Slot 1 or slot 2 for my new NDS. If the F2A is fully comparable with Nintendo DS, then all I need is to get R4 and I can play both DS games and GBA games on the DS, right? The R4 will be the passme when I play GBA game?

    The F2A will work fine in the NDS for playing roms already on it. However you wont be able to put roms on it using the NDS since the NDS doesn't have the connector to plug the F2A linker into. You don't need any type of passme to play GBA roms on a GBA flash cart. All a passme does is allow DS roms to run on NDS flash carts that use the GBA slot.

    actually it depends on your f2a linker. some linkers are usb and require a gbasp or a gba (original). some linkers plug into your printer (LPT) port, these linkers will work for you. The reason why usb linkers will not work is cause the nds does not include a link port which means you cant play multiplayer gba games on the nds

    But obviously you can keep your gba and use that to put roms on the F2A cart.

    Get the EZ-Flash III. Best support of all GBA flash carts ever, and it uses an external card writer.
