    As of now, it is not possible without a flashcart. There is a nds emulator but is not ideal for smooth gaming yet

    Cartridges play fine. To play ds roms you'll need a flashcart.

    Flash cards for DS games work perfectly and are better than emulators

    yea i just got a cheap r4 flashcart for $10. would be nice to launch them from the SD but I rarely play DS games so the flashcart is a good enough solution for me.
