I've got this GBA flash card and am planning to use it as a gba game cart on Nintendo DS. However I haven't got any linkers. I've asked Jandaman if EZ-flash 1/2/3 usb linker would work but they said it's not compatible. And neither is flash2advance, I was told.

Then what should I do to be able to transfer gba roms to the flash cart and play them on DS?

Thanks in advance!

The 3in1 doesn't contain any method of directly communicating with a computer. You flash files to it from a slot-1 device on the DS itself. If you don't have a slot-1 device, then you're kinda screwed.

But wait. What do you suggest I purchase then? If I'm planning to play gba-roms. What would be a good basic slot-1 device?

Slot-1 devices can't run GBA binaries. However, you can combine the slot-1 device and the EZ-V 3in1 to gain that capability.

So I must have a slot-1 cart. Transfer .gba-files from my PC to that. Then in DS transfer those files into the EZ 3in1?

And can also play ds-files in the slot-1 cart(?)

Yes to both questions.

Do MP3s work just like that, just put them in there?

And how about .nds-files? I tried to open Diddy Kong Racing DS but both screens stayed white.

If you install Moonshell on your card, you can play MP3 files easily.

Getting specific games to work depends on what device you ended up getting. Which slot-1 card do you have?

It's EZ Flash V.

I forgot what forum I was in when I made that last post. Sorry, we can't talk about roms at DCEmu. I don't even know the answer to that one anyway.

I'd still like a guide about the ez flash... I guess it isn't so "EZ" lol...

just got mine today but I'm still waiting for my R4 to arrive. will it be simple to figure out when I get the R4?

Yes, just drag and drop the files to the micro SD card and you'll be good to go. Only thing is that you need to load the R4 firmware onto the card first. You can download it here (http://www.r4ds.com/soft/20-en.htm).
