    You didn't specify if you wanted parallel port or USB, but either way I think your best bet would be the trading sections of various forums. I've been searching around a bit myself and cannot find any stores that still sell the USB linker.

    I used to have the USB, but it doesn't matter, I would want parallel port as well since I have an extra Win 98 computer with that feature!!! The thing is, not only I have the Flash2Advance card but I also have a GB Bridge, so without the linker those two items won't work!!
    I tried the Trading Section from Gbatemp but here what they gave me:

    Thank you!!!! I appreciate my friend!!! I ordered as soon as i read your post my friend how_do_i_do_that, GB Bridge is the best choice to play GB and GBC but without the Flash2Advance card it's useless!!!

    Keep in mind there's no guarantee that it will work. He's just suggesting a product that may work for your cart.

    Worst case, you can emulate the GB/GBC games on your GBA with Goomba Color.

    DanTheManMS, I have an 1G Elink and I followed your suggestion and tried Goomba Color, and to be honest some games that I tried(Donkey Kong Country and Super Mario Deluxe) the speed in those were not 100% and a lot slowdowns, but there were couple games like Zelda: Oracle of Seasons that were excellent,SGB borders for GB is a big plus too on this emulator.

    Try messing around in the Speedhacks menu. You might be able to get your games running at fullspeed that way.
