Is it possible to trade between Ruby\Sapphire and FireRed\LeafGreen by using a DS or DS Lite? I've tried once with each but it seems the "communication" isn't there. Is it my systems or games or just can't do it that way? I only have one GBA SP with wireless connector. I don't have the cable which seems to be the way for Ruby\Sapphire. At this moment in time, I don't want to upload any of them onto Pearl right now.

The only way you could trade from a GBA cartridge to another GBA cartridge is by using a link cable to Connect two GBA's - DS wireless only functions with DS games, which have these wireless connection capabilities programmed in. If you're worried that the pokemon on the GBA cartridge will be forgotten, you can use the Pal Park in the DS games. Unfortunately, you can't trade GBA games with a DS alone.

I was trading around earlier today with my niece's games using my Pearl and her G4 games so I knew the DS was working that way.  I never thought about the actual games not recognizing the wireless\infrared system.  Oh well, I guess I'll have to eventually upload what I've got into Pearl.
