    Ripping old Gameboy and Gbc games via USB

    Is it possible? I currently have a GB Transfer 2 but it doesn't seem to be working right and I really need to back up my Gameboy Cameras save as it has some extremely important pictures that I need to preserve.

    As long as it's not being used for piracy (which it isn't...though I may upload the pictures to Facebook lol) then it should be fine...I don't recall it being covered in the rules. All I really need is if someone else has GB transfer 2 to tell me which position to set the switch for GB/GBC. It has 3 positions and the label fell off so I don't know which position does what.

    As I said, these pictures are of extreme importance to me and cannot be replaced if the Camera battery dies so backing them up is highest priority.

    Ps, The GB Camera was awesome! I used to make stop-motion short films with it lmao.

    So if I were to define a backup device it would be fine.
    With these devices there is a chance of file corruption.

    Would you be able to use a digital camera to snap close up photo of your data or print with the GB printer?

    I have printed the picture with GB printer but the problem is the paper fades over time till it becomes purely white destroying the images. I could use a real camera to snap a shot of my GB screen while viewing the image but the issue with that is getting a good shot without shadow or glare and still capturing the image at an angle that doesn't distort it.

    Do you have a Mega Memory Card? That is a way I found that allows you to copy to your computer.

    I have an old pelican mega memory card. How would that help rip the saves to my computer though?

    Edit: this right?

    All is working now just had to use a different USB cable.

    Extremely happy to have saved the pictures before it was too late. Now if I can find a way to "clean" them up, that would be epic.
