Its included, but it won't play Gameboy Advance games. only regular gameboy games.

Assuming your problem is that you don't see the files in the file browser, did you set the view settings to something like "music only"?  If so, try "all files".

Ja, it has to be GB or GBC for it to work { there is a pokemon GBC rom out there somewhere...I have one that works perfectly fine on my Sansa e280 v1} . I would love to play GBA games on my sansa e280, but alas, I cannot.
What they need to do is make a NES emulator and name it RockNES   NES games are the best =P
Make sure you have a separate folder for your  GB /GBC games . I have mine named Games and is the 3rd file when I click on Files. If the game does not open when you click on it, hold the middle button and go to open with and then rockboy.
- If ya have any more questions about rockboy I could help you =P
