The new USB version of the F2A linker fixes the problems that
users encountered after the release of the GBA SP. Old printer
port version works fine with the GB Advance, but many users reported
problems when trying to write roms to the flash card using SP -
the cartridge was not recognized. (To solve this you have to get
the new USB version). F2A USB Linker is also compatible with Flash
Advance PRO and Turbo cards and
of course with all F2A carts that came with the Printer port version
of the linker.
Flash-2-Advance cartridges can be used with GB-Bridge to play
GB/GBC roms on Game Boy COLOR or Advance. You can also emulate NES,
Spectrum, SEGA roms or use Software like PoGo
Shell that will let you read PC *.txt files on gba, use it
to listen to MIDI music files and view JPG and BMP pictures as
well as do lots of other cool stuff..

it to your local PC harddrive as a ROM file (*.GBA) Flash Advance

file - you won't loose any game data, e.g. when the battery in your
original GBA game gets empty.

Gameboy roms to Flash 2 Advance Cards! Use the provided software
