    Because gba games take quite a bit more memory to run. It's possible to use most flash carts to play gba games, but you need a memory expansion in slot1. I recommend the EZ Flash 3-in-1

    If you're using a 3DS then your only option for playing gba games is the DSTwo, which has the extra memory needed built into the slot2 cart.

    Just change the file extension from gba to agb, there's no conversion needed
