As I'm not German, I'll answer in english, if indeed the online translator did its job correctly...

It is impossible to play GBA games from a a slot-1 (nds) cart, you will always need to buy a slot-2 (gba) cart to play GBA software.
This program will copy the GBA game to your slot-1  cart, but you need to copy this to a slot-2 cart to actually play it.

Actually, if you have the right add on that goes with your Flash Cart. You can play GBA roms off Slot-1. M3 DS Real has a GBA Ram Expansion just for this.

As for a question I have, each time i use it, it tells me I have no GBA cartridge or an invalid cartridge. I have tried multiple games and I still get the same message. I am using an M3 DS Real on a DS Lite if that has anything to do with it.

no, you would be using the slot1 to flash to slot2, and you are still playing off slot2. the slot1 hardware can not run the gba game.

What I'm saying is that with an add on that goes in Slot 2, you can store your roms on slot 1 and still play them. I know how it works, and what you said is just an explanation of how my statement works.

Still it's a fact that you need "a special thing" in slot-2 ^^

Which flashcard or if its a Lite or not shouldnt matter... The GBA-reading code should not be affected by this.
You are sure the GBA-cardridge is realy recognized (also when normally playing it).

In some cases I had to blow into the GBA-Card & The Slot-2 to get it working with my realy old games.

It's the same for me (I blew into the cartridge and the slot - didn't change anything)

no, i corrected your statement which said you can play games off slot1. the roms are never running off slot1, they are being flashed on-the-fly to slot2 where they execute. you can, in no way what-so-ever, play a gba rom from a slot1. that distinction is very important and saves us all from the constant posts by those who are confused by the way you chose to word your comments.

Two ppl with the same problem o_o
I tested it again and now i get the same thing. I did millions of tests before and it worked, there must be some coding-error that sneaked in at the end x_x

God knows what happened; however, as this entry doesnt work and so has no feature (lol) i will take it out and hopefully will get it working until the next compo.
