    Hey guys, today I received a 256mb EZF Advance I bought online pretty cheaply, and I was wondering how I could set it up. It came with 2 games on it, but I want to add my own, and I am unsure how to since it doesn't come with a cable/flash linker. If anyone could guide me on where to order one online and how to set it up, I would really appreciate it, thanks.

    You need the cable. They were never sold separate, so you are probably not going to find one.

    If you do manage to get hold of one, then the cart is simple enough to use.

    http://filetrip.net/gba-downloads/clients-loaders-firmwares/download-ezfa-1-03-f322.html

    That's the client.

    It only works up to xp, so you will either need to use xp or set up a virtual machine, like in this guide
    http://gbatemp.net/threads/using-virtualbox-to-manage-legacy-gba-flashcarts.275407/

    Which ever you use (xp machine or virtual one), the cart is simple enough to use.

    Plug the cable in, open the software. Turn on the gba while holding start+select, software will find the cart and you are free to delete/add games, backup saves etc. The software is not complex.

    But you are out of luck until you get a cable, cart is useless without it.

    This Flash cart is very old so you would most likely not find one now.
