    Is there any BEST way to emulate GBC games on a GBA SP?
    I have an EZ-Flash 4 so that should make things simpler.

    use a gbc emulator on that cart.

    or you could just, you know, play them on it.

    Goomba color is a great emulator you can use.

    You sure you're using the latest version of Goomba Color from dwedit.org? It's fairly complete and fully-featured.

    From what I have read, you could just put tape around the bottom of the GBA flash cart and then it'd work like a GBC one, but I'm not 100% sure about that. They may need different voltages, in which case that wouldn't work.

    Haha, won't work...they're completely different cards. It's like trying to read a Blu-Ray disc in a CD drive.

    gameboy cartridges work on 5v, GBA cartridges work on 3.3v, not only will that fail to work, it could cause your flashcard to combust.
