It still works, but with the GBA-transfer port being ripped out of the DS,
there is no way to transfer data to the cartridge apart from transferring it
using a GBA.

I assumed the old GBA flash carts will work just fine (providing you retain
the means to get the data on the card in the first place), but as for DS
exclusive cards, I give it until the European release next year for the
first tried and tested carts to surface from the Far East.

Expect them to be unjustifiably expensive.

Isn't there flash carts that do not requre the GBA transfer port? Or
is that the only way to "rip" a GBA cart?

I'm looking for a MAME cart that will allow me to play MAME games.
Especially the Metal Slug ROMS. Are there any available?
