I have now tried two different cables and 5 different games that offer the link with one cart option and I have yet to make the damn things work. WTF is the matter with these things!? Has anyone else out there tried linking the SPs up yet? All I ever get is "error making connection, turn off and on again" Posted Image

PC load letter!...WTF does that mean!!!

Are you using the right cables? Try plugging them in before you turn the games on.

I have tried two different types. One is the offical GB cable that I have used for my GB color for years now. The other is a third party GB cable with both the old style (original fatty plug) and new style plugs (the ones that fit the GB color / advance.

There's the problem. The GBC cables aren't the same as the GBA ones, even though they look similar. You need GBA cables (you can buy them at the store for like $10, probably less).
