    Hi all,

    I found my old elink flash cart for slot-2 of the Nintendo DS Lite, so I can play GBA games on my NDSL. But I can't find the USB Cable that came with it, its a very strange slot I've never seen before... Anybody know what cable I need? or where I can get a replacement?

    I've tried mini-USB and its way too big, I even tried a 4pin Firewire which was slightly too big... Any help appreciated. I've uploaded a photo of the port

    That looks a lot like the cable that comes with the Action Replay DSi.

    I think you've been talking to yourself. :P

    PS: Sorry, I'm aware that this post was very unhelpful.

    Hahaha, oddly enough, TerryG's comment about the Action Replay gave me extra info to do a search and find the right one...

    Any your comment wasn't unhelpful, I'm no longer talking to myself! lol
