Sustem won't save data on one game but will on another.

I am attempting to play my Game-Boy Advance SP through my Game Cube. I have pluged the Game Boy into the Game Cube using the proper cable. For reasons that I am not sure of, I am not able to play my games. I was told that because my Game-Boy in saving data, a game file cannot be established which is needed to allow for game play. Is this correct? Are there any other problems that I don't know about. Please help.

I never bought the game cubes "game boy player" but as far as i know you plug your games into the player not your gameboy . if your talking about the gb to GC link cable. that does not play game boy games on your tv screen. its made to be used in tandem with a gamecube game that uses the gameboy link feature.

My sp will not charge, I am not sure if it is the battery or something else

Game Boy Advance SP - Charging Light Won't Display If the orange-colored charge light on your Game Boy Advance SP is no longer coming on when the A/C Adapter is connected to your system, please use the following troubleshooting steps.
    Troubleshooting Steps:
    1. Make Sure the Game Boy Advance SP Isn't Already Fully Charged
      If the battery is already fully charged, the light will not display when the system is plugged into the AC Adapter. Play a game without using the AC Adapter for at least 10-15 minutes, then plug the AC Adapter in, to see if the light comes on. If it does come on, the battery was fully charged. If the light still does not come on, see Step 2.

    2. Make Sure the Outlet You Are Using Works
      Plugging another electrical device into the outlet is a good way to check if the outlet works, or that the outlet you are using is not controlled by a nearby light switch. You may also want to try a different outlet.

    3. Try a Different Licensed AC Adapter
      If the charging light doesn't display, try a different AC Adapter, if possible, to determine if perhaps the problem is with the adapter.

      • If a different AC Adapter works, you will need to get a replacement AC Adapter from our Online Store, or by calling our Consumer Service Department at 1-800-255-3700.
      • If a different AC Adapter doesn't work, or if a replacement AC Adapter is not available and the lights will not display, we recommend having your Game Boy Advance SP repaired. Check out our convenient repair options.

    Note: Please be sure to include both the Game Boy Advance SP and the AC Adapter with any repair

Super mario 3 data is corrupt. can't even start the game to save.

Well I personally think that you know on how theese gamepacks have a dime size battery in them to save the game data well the dime size battery is dead now or its a broken or bad gamepack then. Not the gameboy advance sp then. Your sp is okay its just a crappy gamepack.

I have a problem on my gameboy advance sp model unit ags-001., and i have a question can the gba sp play old game boy games? and what if its downloadable game can it work on the unit?

Hi, yes it can play classic Game Boy games. On the other hand, if you reffer to roms as downloadable games, there is no legal way to do so, by any means, you would need a flashcart for that.

My son I think has deleted all games can I restore them


The game data for GBA SP games are held in the actually game cartridge itself. It is not stored within the GBA. If the data from the games has been deleted, he would have to restart each game from the beginning. There is no way to restore lost saved data once it is gone. Thank you for using FixYa! =) If I helped, please give me a rating.
