A complete guide here on backing up Game Boy cartridges along with their respective saves to keep your cartridges and data safe using the GBxCart RW! This will walk through the process of downloading the required software, installing drivers, and updating the firmware on the GBxCart RW to allow for cartridge backup. The GBxCart RW works on Game Boy, Game Boy Color, and Game Boy Advance cartridges so compatibility across systems is fantastic. Cartridge data can be backed up, including save files, which is invaluable as Game Boy batteries are always dying and taking old saves with them. The GBxCart makes this easy to accomplish after a few minutes of setup, and can even restore data back to cartridges which could be incredibly useful for anyone out there wanting to retain their saves through a battery replacement.
