    Ive been looking for backup hardware for my GB, GBA and DS games, and came across this after 4 days of searching.

    But the Linker Xtreme doesnt backup GB or CGB games so i wont get one. nor have i ever used one.

    i have no affiliation with this site at all, i just come across it, and have noticed a fair few threads looking for Linkers for GBA so i thought i'd put it out there.

    Be aware it appears to be just the linker (no flash cart). Still good for dumping GBA games and saves (though I am not sure about EEPROM right now), and a Flash Advance Xtreme if you have one that lacks a linker I guess.

    They also appear to stock a GBA to SNES adapter and more interestingly something that allows AV input to the GBA http://famicomworld.com/system/famiclones/handy-famieight/

    Both of those I would like to get to pull apart, sadly I have no burner paypal accounts right now or I would be well up for that.

    Regarding the site the name rings a bell but I am not sure if it is a good one or a bad one.

    You are right, i am only after something for backing up saves. no need for a flash cart.

    Yeah using my DS Lite what i plan on doing, i was hoping to find one that does both GB and GBA to save some dosh but might not be available.

    All still very new to me, Rudolph's GBA dumping tool is something i have come across a lot, interested to give a few a try.

    *Link didnt work for me*

    Yeah i posted a tread asking for confirmation of efficient available backup hardware for GB, GBA, and DS, but no productive response.

    I have a few of these (with carts) left at: http://www.flashmasta.com/2014/02/21/gba-flash-cart-linker-flash-advance-xtreme-linker-128m-carts/

    I was planning to post a new thread here to see if there was enough interest for me to try to source more. I already have plenty of the flash carts.

    Also, I'm working on some new software for these linkers to be able to use them under OSX/Win7/Win8/Linux/etc. I think it'll be an interesting release when ready, as I'm considering open sourcing it.
