UPDATE: nvm, I got it working, I really don't know what I did, but I've ended up just using the AS program anyway.
I couldn't find the AS at my local Best Buy, but I got the gameshark kit and a memory card. I can't get it set up. Even with the (fire international) drivers I can't get the memory card recognized.
I think the cable is the same thing, so if someone could send me the action replay drivers (I found the program itself) I might be able to get started on the actual hack.
If anyone has those drivers, or suggestions on how to get the GS set working, please post here.
