    Hello everyone.
    This is my first post on this forum so be nice to me ;).
    A few days ago I came over a GBSP NES edition with 3 games (Zelda minish cap, advance wars 2, rayman) and a flash cart for $3.
    So I'm all new to this and need some help.

    First of all I want to identify my flash cart. Here you go:

    Why I want to identify it is because I would like to know if its any good. And what it supports. For example RTC.

    Second I need to find something that I can use to reflash it with new games. I'm missing cable or what you use to program it. Please direct me to a DIY cable or where you can buy it. Maybe a new cart pack with cable.

    Why I want this to work is simple, just for the fun of it. And that i ordered a ez flash IV from RHS but not sure if I'm getting because seems like people bought thousands of them when they came in stock.

    I hope you can help me in this matter.

    Sincerely

    Very odd
    "Fire2USB50a.exe" is mentioned on the archive version of the official site (the one on the label - http://web.archive.org/web/20090328052014/http://kst1388.com/download.asp ), this is most likely a firecard/firelinker. Not seen one like that before but firecards are second only to R4 in the generic name stakes.
    http://wiki.pocketheaven.com/index.php?title=FireLinker has more.
    Not much chance you will find a cable for it* though and no DS based software methods that I know of (granted that list sits at anything that got called an expansion pack for the DS and http://code.google.com/p/fas1/ ).

    *I say this but firecards are occasionally found in places (I have no places currently supplying them and all my old links seem to have dried up, a search only drags up a few alibaba pages and info links) and as they are not that desirable they tend to hang around. They are not great but they are no supercard and will play things if you can get the software working.

    Yeah! but it was a estimate. My girlfriend works in a second hand shop and I made a deal with her boss when i saw it was a nes edition and a flashcart. The deal was that I fix the boss's computer and we bought two pants, a dress, Logitech harmony 1000, and the gameboy for $17. Quite a good deal.
