    You need to get a flashcard. It goes into the DS game slot, and there are a few out there. Simply download the roms, put them in the correct directory, and play.

    I use the R4, which can be had from Dealextreme, but there are a lot of others - check the sticky out for a guide. A flashcard and memory card costs about 10-15.

    Well guys, I managed to pick up a preloaded R4 just in time for xmas, plugged it in an away i go....

    However, It came with no disk with software, not that i need it just yet.... im interested to know what should come on the disk???

    Also Upon boot, I get the three logo`s.... Pacman Face, Media and a dual face icon.

    The games I have found on the Pacman face, I aume if i uplaod music these will apear on the media icon?

    Also is it just simple drag and drop onto the card once ive pulled down som Roms?

    Any recomendations for Rom sites? or should i just use the usual Torrent serach engines etc...

    Many thanks, and Merry xmas to all at DF

    M.A.

    if you have the pac man face its already preloaded with the software.
    put the mini card in a reader , open it up and put a new folder there called games, just drag the .nds files into this . when you load up the ds click the pacman then a square comes up with a folder in, click that with the stylus then scroll down with the + controller , you`ll see the games and little picture in the bottom screen. touch this with stylus then it`ll say something like save .sav file click yes and your in.
    hope thats clear enough for you mate. i use a newsgroup to get my files and .nzb`s from united-forums
