    It's a flashcart. I think it's one of those that need a special writer so if you don't have that, you're SOL.
    That's for the Slot-1 cart though ;)

    Looks like it has a USB input at the top. So, there is probably no linker needed. Just use the USB port.

    It's technically not a GBA cart at all. It's also useless without the corresponding Slot-1 card.

    Back in the day when an R4 and a 1GB microSD would set you back $40 or so, you could get these things with 1GB of memory built right in for five or ten bucks less. Basically, the GBA cart slot is a writing tool for the Slot-1 cart, which was too slim to fit a mini-USB port. Pop both carts in, boot to the DS cart's home menu, and plug into the GBA-slot writer to write to the slot-1 cart like any other USB Mass Storage device. Convoluted, but neat in its own way. And of course if you weren't writing, the GBA cart didn't have to be in the system at all.

    I bought a similar card (the N-Card) about a decade ago when DealExtreme first started selling them, although I had to do some tinkering to get its writer to work - it came with a cart designed to replace the DS Lite's dust cover, and I only had a fat DS at the time. Save battery died after about a year, too.
