    All slot-1 cards currently only support DS games. Some companies (EZFlash) are coming out with an addon that adds support for GBA but it's not known whether that is possible or going to happen with the R4.

    The only way to play GBA games at the moment is to buy a slot-2 card and use the R4's built in passme feature to boot to the slot-2 card, saving you a few dollars on the passme.

    You don't need a passme to play gba games so the R4 working as a passme does not come into play.

    I'm wondering if he means that he has a DS and the R4 but wants to play original GBA games from slot 2. You can download a small .nds file for your R4 that will boot the GBA cartridge. I've had a quick look on the forum, but can't find the topic about it [​IMG]

    I think the OP is inquiring to how to load GBA roms, not actual cartridges. He never specified, but if that's what he means, then the answer is "you can't." /end

    From R4DS support forum:

    You'll need GBA Slot-1 Switcher.
    Boot GBA from slot-2 using a slot-1 card.

    Otherwise you'll have to remove the R4DS every time you want to play GBA.
