    Hi, i just wanted to ask if someone knows where can i get a Flash cart for the GB classic (or pocket or light). It would be better if it worked with Mini SD or some memory like that.
    The only one i've found is this one http://kitsch.bigcartel.com/product/usb-64m-smart-card .
    Do you guys know where can i get one?

    PS: There's this guy who has a GBLight with box, and in mint condition, he doesnt know what he has, and he's giving it to me for $40 bucks. What you guys think?
    Should i buy it? Or should i save my money for a DS Lite with GB, NES, SNES emulation capabilities and DS playability?

    Thanks in advance

    I'd day get it. You can always resell it. Also can't you get a flash cart from there?

    Here's a different one.

    Have you tried this one?

    How are the games flashed onto the cart? Is there a linker or on memory card?

    first link is a usb device. Older and rarer carts linked up via parallel port but the newer ones use usb.

    I'd love to hear from someone who has tried one. I am also in the market for a GB flash cart -- but am not so familiar with which one is the best choice (ROM compatibility? speed? flashing software efficacy? build quality?)...

    Hi, thanks everyone for your responses.
    Schizoanalysis, Which "one" are you talking about? (I suppose you forgot to type the link)

    Either/or...

    I have seen both on the internet, but did not buy one as I did not know which is a better choice.

    I was specifically referring to the clear purple one, but I would buy either if someone tells me that one is better than the other.


    If you google LSDJ, it is possible to find some places selling the black one (or at least it was when I tried it a few months ago).

    I've really wanted one to use with a GBC. Will "smartboy" work? Do they ship to America?

    I have Both the Smartboy and the EMS usb cart and I would recommend getting the EMS cart. It has 8 MB storage and supports multiple games at once although only one save at a time. I`ve also found very few incompatibilities but there are patches out if you look hard enough. The Smartboy is nice if you want to dump the saves of your legit carts. there are also other options like the bleepbloop to which uses usb also.

    Will get the EMS one...
