Like the NES before it, the SNES has retained interest among its fans even following its decline in the marketplace. It has continued to thrive on the second-hand market and through console emulation. Many gamers discovered the SNES after its decline. The zSNES has taken much the same revival path as the NES.
Emulation projects began in 1996 with projects such as "VSMC" and "Super Pasofami," which, despite some important initial gains, did not last long past 1998. During that time, two competing emulation projects--Snes96 and Snes97--merged forming a new initiative entitled Snes9x. In early 1998, SNES enthusiasts began programming a console emulator named ZSNES. From then on, these two emulators have continued to offer the most complete emulation of the system and its various add-on chips like the Super FX Chip.

Nintendo took the same stance against the distribution of SNES ROM image files and emulation as it did with the NES, insisting that they represented flagrant software piracy. Proponents of SNES emulation cite as arguments for their continued distribution: the discontinued production of the SNES, the right of the owner of the respective game to make a personal backup, the frailty of SNES cartridges (even though cartridges are far more durable than optical discs), and the lack of certain foreign imports. Starting in the 128-bit era, both Nintendo and emulation proponents began to have a less active stance on this issue.
Despite Nintendo's attempts to stop the proliferation of such projects, ROM files continue to be available on the Internet. Since the console's discontinuation, second-hand market decline, and rapid growth of the Internet, finding the files has become less of a challenge than it had been with the NES. Most general ROM sites offer files for the SNES.
The SNES was one of the first systems to attract the attention of amateur fan translators: Final Fantasy V was the first major work of fan translation to be completed, in 1997.
The future of fan-driven SNES emulation, however, may be in question due to Nintendo's announcement at the 2005 Electronic Entertainment Expo that the upcoming Revolution console will feature the capability to emulate all of Nintendo's past consoles. Considering this, Nintendo may take a much harder stance against emulation in the future. 379457

You have to have a way to connect gameboy cartridge to
the PC. For that you can you Flash Advance Linker or FA
Linker Xtreme. Regular linker connects to Printer port
when Xtreme can be connected to both printer port or USB.
Save game data on PC as *.GBA file Emulator
When you have FA Linker connected you can use Flash Advance
Writer, Little Writer or Flash Xtreme writer software
to save the game from the cartridge on to your PC Hard
Drive. It will be saved as .GBA file. Most roms are 4MB
(1 Mega Byte on PC = 8 Mega Bits on Cartridge)
Play backuped SNES games
When you have backuped the game on the PC you can Play
it with one of the Gameboy Emulators or you can send it
a ReWritable Flash Advance card and play it on another
Gameboy. Because Flash Advance Cards are bigger than regular
GBA Cartridges you can make compilation of say 8 of your
favorite games and write them to one 256M FA Card.
In short - this is how most of the gameboy advance roms
that you can download from the internet are made. As you
can see - the main purpose of roms (and FA Linker) is
not to play then on PC's using Emulators, but to use them
as backups of your original games. Of course if you have
made a backup of your game you can play it PC if you like..
