    Hi,

    I'm currently looking for a GB/GBC flash card that would allow me to read the header of a game (retrieving the title) and saving/restoring save games. I've found a couple of guides on how to make your own, but they are a bit too difficult and I also have a hard time to find the components such as the cartridge slot.

    Does there exist any readers/writers that are still being sold? Or maybe some of you have experience building your own? :)

    I'm not exactly sure what you mean but personally i have the smart card 64.
    It does the job but you can have 1 save each time. (there is a workaround for it though)
    Also it'll be easier to setup virtualbox with windows xp in order to flash games/saves into it.

    If you have the money then you can check the everdrive gb by krikzz.
    It has microSD so it's drag 'n' drop.

    None of them have RTC.

    Ah i see. You could try building one but i wasn't really able to figure out where each pin from cartridge would connect to the processor.
    That black thick line isn't really helpfull. :P

    You can use a gba (well ds slot-2) for the cartridge header.

    GBC: if you have an N64 and an Everdrive 64 you can use the Transfer pak to read savegames and dump romps from GB/GBC carts using a homebrew app.

    GBA: if you have an NDS and an R4 flashcart, you can use a homebrew app called GBA Backup Tool to read GBA savegames and dump GBA Roms
