    DSLinux support .zip ... just use the following command:

    cd \media\
    unzip myzipfile.zip

    You probably need a RAM expansion though ...

    more effort than it's worth to use dslinux to extract the archives.

    dscompress does a good job and is dedicated to the process.

    Do you just put the DSCompress.nds on the card or do you need the arm9 file?

    i just put the dscompress FOLDER into my homebrew folder, and run the .nds file from that folder, and was able to compress files to .gz format

    All I did was push A on the zip, and it unzipped it
