Since last W10 update, I can't connect the cartridge to the computer. Previously, I made it restarting the computer disabling the forced request of signature and installing the drivers manually, but now it says that it doesn't find any driver on my folder.. What could I do?

Windows 10 has a habit of removing drivers and apps it doesn't like with every update. Recommend you use a VM with windows XP.

Virtualbox works well enough for the GB flashcart.

Windows 10 doesn't have XP Mode, XP Mode is a windows 7 ONLY feature.


You should use this guide to get the software working. You just need to swap out Elink and the software for the GB USB smart card.

Your other option is to get one of the newer GB flashcarts that uses a microSD like the everdrive, etc where it uses the drag and drop features.

I need a cartridge whose memory can be overwritten by Mega Memory Card because I use GB USB SC in order to backup my cartridges. Is there any device that can connect directly to a USB or a modern flashcart that I can use for this? If not, I think that I'm going to use WXP VM. I did it before, but I don't like my HDD having a lot of partitions.

You only need to make a 20GB virtual HDD file tops for xp. Use the Dynamic drive setting if your setting up a HDD in Virtualbox, it will keep the size as small as possible.

You can try BennVenn's GB flashcarts. You might want to email him to find out.

You might have to raise your post count to 100 before you can check the Trading section of the forum here for one. There aren't many GB flashcarts readily available.

Other places you can try and see if they got anything:
