With Flash Advance Linker can you re-write a GBA cartridge? Say you had an old Castlevania - Circle Of The Moon cartridge, could you re-place it with Harvest Moon - Friends Of Mineral Town? Also, does Flash Advance Linker also work with GB/GBC cartridges?

Not a chance. You have to buy special 'flash carts' and put your games and stuff on those. Not too expensive anymore.

Not really. With a flashcart, you can put a bunch of GB roms onto a cart and play those on your GBA. GBC, I don't think is possible, but I'm not positive.

Can any Flash Advance Card (like on http://www.gameboy-advance.net/flash_card/gba_flash_advance_cards.htm) work with the XG Flash hardware? I don't want to end up purchasing the wrong items. Also, do you know of anywhere to purchase flash cards that only store around 10-20MB instead of the 200+MB ones, meant for single games only. (I don't want to sell my friends games I made for $300 CND, lol)

I'm not sure about that one. I have an XG-Flash and the software that comes with has options for detecting cards other than the XG-Flash cards. I can't say that means it'll work, though. Most linkers will come bundled with a card already, though.

Well, when it says 256mb, it means megabits. Divide whatever the number is by 8 and that's how many megs it'll be able to hold.

Where's the best place to order an XG-Flash (that will ship to Canada) and how much are 64M and 128M flash cards usually around?

I do know that old style Visoly carts will not flash with an X-ROM cable...so I'd have to guess that it would not work for other manufacturers either. I don't know this for sure though...you're just better off getting whatever hardware fits the card you are wanting to buy.

I assume you mean via Goomba? I do know there's no GBC emulators for the GBA around...although I'd be more interested in something like that now since the DS doesn't support GB or GBC natively. Goomba works just fine however. <img src=smilies/thumb.gif>
