    Alright, I put the NDS file onto my micro SD card, but I don't know how to load the roms, can someone please explain? Do I need a Slot 2 device?

    Do you have the FAT file needed? (its the system file)
    If not try the Acekard website, YSMenu, or AKAIO (the last 2 are better than the first - More game compatability)
    if yes, have you put the actual file into the SD cardand not the zip? is it really .nds files and not anything else?

    Did these emulators come with readme files?

    Read the ReadMe files that come with most of the emulators. If you're still confused, come back and ask, providing specific information (for instance, the name of the emulator is usually a crucial piece of information) as well as a description of where exactly you're getting stuck.

    Alright, I'm pretty sure I fixed it. >_>

    What's the best SNES emulator in your guys opinion? Right now I'm using the latest version of SNEmulDS and it's lagging when I try to play certain games.

    Almost all emulators on the DS involve loading the .nds file to the root of your card, putting the ROMs in folders titled by the acronym of the game system the ROMs are for, and then loading up said emulator and enjoy.

    get a gba expansion pack or memory pack of some kind (slot 2), if that doesn't help thats as good as it will work, snemulds is the besst snes emulator the ds has, that being said its pretty flakey with most games it works with
