Gameboy Flash2Advance Linker & F2A USB Linker

GBA Flash Linker

The Flash Advance Linker was the first professional mass produced development device for the Gameboy™ Advance and still is King! You connect it to the PC, plug in Flash Advance Card into the FALinker and now you can write roms to the FlashROM or read out and backup on your computer the Game roms from the Nintendo gba cartridges.

Its successor is FA Linker Xtreme (uses USB instead of Parallel Printer Port) also known as FA Linker Extreme. FA Xtreme is ~30% faster than FAdvance but who really cares if you have to write the roms 2 or 3 mints - what's more important Flash Extreme is better in the way that it uses USB port, and when used with it does not require additional power supply. So if you don't have a free printer port get this one!

Later on came Flash 2 Advance Linker or you can also find it under the name of Flash Linker 2 or II or F2A Pro... Its name has led to some confusion - it is not 2nd version of Flash Advance Linker as you might think. Flash 2 Advance is a link cable that connects Parallel Printer directly to Gameboy Advance and lets you write gba roms to the Flash Card that is plugged into the GBA. Because it is more simple it also costs less! It has its own F2A 64M and F2A 128M Flash Cards, but F2A 256M cart is the same as 256M Flash Advance Card and it can be used both on F2A and FA.

As if it wasn't complicated enough there are also newcomers like EZ-Flash (XG-Flash) that also let you backup games and emulate gba roms in gameboy. EZ-Flash uses USB port and in that manner is similar to FA Xtreme, when as WiseBox can be used with Printer port OR it can be used separately to backup Games to WiseCard directly without a PC.

If you ask me - Go for the Flash Advance Linker Extreme 256M set as it is the best most compatible device. If you can't afford it look at the 128M Flash 2 Advance set. I wouldn't suggest you to buy any of the cheap 64M sets as there are games like Lords of The Rings : Two Towers that take up all 128M and if you have a 64M Flash Card you will not be able to play it :(

So what can I do with a flash card? »
