Nintendo DSi SD card Rom games HELP. [SOLVED]

Post by Isubasa on Mon 20 May - 3:09

So recently I've been craving ds time, and I'm tired of my current games-
(the ones I haven't lost in the move )

I have been trying to do the whole loading dsi rom games onto an SD card...
but I cant get it to work- I think I'm doing it wrong... (ps I'm on a Mac Laptop)

Console DSI, v. 1.4.5U

My SD card is a regular 4 GB (not micro) SanDisk SDHC Card format: MS-DOS (Fat32) unlocked

I've tried about every suggestion on youtube on how to do this, and read countless forums.. and still notta


I'm not sure if it has to be an SD micro, or if you really do need an (Acekard 2i Flash Cart, R4 DS Cartridge, ect). I cannot figure out how to get homebrew on it (if possible), or warioware, or AKLoader


I'm completely lost- this is all really over my head (It was sooo much easier to mod my wii)

When I open my SD Card (on my Mac), it reads as follows: Folder Private/ds/app (folder) or title (folder)

I downloaded the games and opened the zips with stuffit expander(which works really well with the sims file games), when opened the file is archived with .nds at the end. I've tried the different suggested programs(homebrew, warioware, AKLoader) that were suppost to get my dsi to read the .nds games on the dsi- but they didn't work- or I didn't do it right (I tried puting the files in every folder possible )

I can view whats inside the SD card by going under setup, data management- I got warioware to pop up but it said it could not copy it.... I read somewhere that DSiWare cannot be copyed from one DS to another cause of the codes have to match.... and I thought EA was pure EVIL Evil or Very Mad

I cant afford to spend money on this and that with no idea whats going to work (ideally I'd really rather not spend anything- but if I have to I can put cash away ( Crying or Very sad currently empty wallet) sooo Suspect it would be awhile)

PLEASE HELP ME!!!!
I'm about to throw the out the window

any ideas?? or am I just screwed?


so to add to the I've tried pile: Moonshell 2.10 along with DLDI Drop (I know its dated but I couldn't find a new version) my SD card still refuses to do ANYTHING but piss me off.......... GAAAAAWWWAAAAA affraid

Ok, here's what I suggest.
Google No$GBA, and No$Zoomer. Those are emulators, and you can play your DS games on your computer (with a larger screen then Wink ).
Then, to look for your games, just google the name of your game and rom (a rom is basically the file containing the game). Download it from a website where they have a lot of roms just to be sure.
Then, launch No$Zoomer, it will ask you for a file, you need to browse to the No$GBA.exe. Then it will open, and you can load a game!
Tell me if you need more explanations, or if you want us to look into your problem further to play it on the DS...

Thank you Shamrock! I thought running an emulator would be more difficult, but boy was I wrong. Thanks for the advise but since I'm on a mac I had to use desmume instead of No$Zoomer (its not very mac friendly or wine friendly Sad)

Thanks!! I can now enjoy my long awaited ds time Very Happy

if I have any problems I know who to ask, Thanks again!
