How do you rip the ROM image off a game cart?

Using commonly found 'backup' hardware. There are USB cables you plug to your gameboy and it downloads the ROM through the cable to the pc. There's also linkers or cradles that you plug a cart into, and dump it that way.

an old style parallel port linker, bought this and the card for $200 like two years ago.

I had a spare USB linker and some time so I through it in an old floppy drive housing.

I'll send you a pm of places to buy these things, since it's pretty much illegal, even though ebay allows these yet not 15 year old snes copiers.

why can't I include images?
