    You need a slot 2 such as the EZ Flash3in1 or the EZ Flash IV if you want to play GBA games on any R4 card.

    Nope. There's not.
    If you want to play GBA games on a slot 1 cart, get a DSTWO

    Even though you may find *.ds.gba files for really old homebrew programs, these are not in fact converted GBA files. They are simply standard DS files with a very small special header attached to them, so that they can be run from old GBA-era flash carts using a slot-1 passthrough device. The flashing software would refuse to flash it if it didn't end in .gba, so they came up with that naming convention.
