    You have to have a slot2 expansion pack such as the Ewin 2in1 or the EZ 3in1 to play GBA games. The games are stores on the slot1 card and get transferred to the expansion pack (which has enough internal memory for one game) to play the game.

    These expansion packs will also work as extra memory required for the Opera web browser.

    so in the end i can't play if i don't have the slot 2 card right?

    my friend said that he can play GBA games in slot 1 with edge card.
    i don't know wether he was lying or he don't know if it works or not(no action talking only)

    Well, yes, your friend is lying.

    Like Bri said - You'll have to buy a Slot 2 flashcart if you want to play GBA roms.

    they already told you no matter what you do with the gba roms they couldnt run on a slot 1 cart.
    There have been lots of posts like this in the forums and its getting really tiresome to read another.

    READ PAST POSTS, YOU'LL LEARN A LOT

    Ah, it's the old, "If I keep slightly altering my question, eventually I expect the answers I am hearing to change" ploy.

    You need a Slot-2 device to play GBA roms on a DS ... any Slot-2 device will do ... except a rumble pak, obviously lol

    End of story.
