    Default Original gameboy flash cart?

    I'm looking for an original or color game boy flash cart. I'm not interested in a GBA or DS flash cart. Does anyone know if such a thing still exists or if someone can point me in the right direction of a reputable seller I would really appreciate it. I've searched the internet, to the best of my ability and I stumbled across this http://www.smartboycart.com/ which would be perfect, but the site doesn't seem to be updated frequently and I don't even see a section where you can purchase? If anyone has any info or recommendations on something like this I'm all ears. Thank you

    Thank you! I'm gonna buy the one in the first link. For $40 I think it will be well worth it. I also believe I have an extra cord laying around that I can use. I'll come back once I get it to let anyone else who would be interested what I think of the product.

    There was some discussion of the USB 64M Smart Card a year and a half ago, might be worth a read if you're thinking of buying it: http://www.digitpress.com/forum/show...cart-out-there

    I ended up buying one as a gift for a buddy of mine. Be forewarned, it is a bit of a finicky device with its share of quirks.

    - Low storage capacity, unexpandable
    - ROMs are broken up over two "pages" that you flip between by powercycling
    - only one save file can be maintained at a time
    - the need to use some fairly crummy proprietary software to manage the contents of the thing
    - driver issues that might give you a bit of a headache
    - some games experience weird graphical glitches (worked around by having the ROM in question be the only one on that page)

    That $100 flash cart sounds way, way smoother, although it appears to be designed to have only a single ROM loaded onto it at a time.
