Hello there. I have an R4i 3DS Gold+. I was wondering if it is compatible for DS Download Content. I also own a modded 3DS XL.


I have the original legit DS games. I was just wondering if it was possible on an R4/modded 3DS.

It is possible to convert convert NDS files that are sent over DS Download Content so they run on a Flash Cart (basically just makes it a standard .nds file).

I have the tool on my computer. I will have look.

So there is this tool: https://mariomasta64.me/dsi-shiz/applications/windows/DS_Demo_DeCompress.zip

Use DSBuff to unpack the NDS rom: https://www.romhacking.net/utilities/1214/

If you can find the roms of the DS Download Station cartridges (
), use the above tool to convert the demo files (I think in the mkdir) from the game. Then you can play them on a Flash Card.

If you are talking playing Demos from retail games, you just need to locate the .srl file (basically an alt name for .nds) and rename the type from: .srl to .nds

For example, Elte Beat Agents demos are located: data\data\rom\
- trial.srl = Play the first two sections of the Walkie Talkie Song
- tutorial.srl = Play the Tutorial level

Sonic Rush has them located at: data\mb\
When I load them in the emulator, a communication error appears, so they won't work.

Advance Wars - Dual Strike: data\boot\
- mb_combat_sgn.srl = Combat Demo

Ridge Racer DS: data\mb\
Since the user has to select which course to download, "main.srl" won't boot.


Hope this helps.
