    Unzip the download on your pc, find the ttmenu.dat file and ttmenu folder and put them on the root of your mem card.

    [*]Reformat your microSD card using the Panasonic formatter.[*]Copy the "TTMENU.DAT" file and "TTMENU" folder from firmware 1.15 (do NOT use 1.16) to the root of your microSD card.[*]Make a folder named "games" on the root of your microSD card and place two or three .nds files in there.[*]Use "safely remove hardware" and press "STOP" before removing your microSD card.[*]Insert the microSD card into your DSTT which is inserted into your NDS.[*]Turn on your NDS.Report back here.

    Full with erase off should work fine (quick works too I believe, but use full to be sure).

    You can have many more than that. I always have 40 or 50 in my ROMS folder, and another 4 in my EMU folder.


    BTW, the DSTT looks for *.nds files in all folders on your Micro SD card.

    As rom666 said, there isn't a limit on the number of games in your "games" folder. The only limitation is the number of files on the root of your microSD card, which is why you should put your games in a "games" folder.

    In my instructions, I wanted you to keep it to 2 or 3 games only for testing purposes. Once you confirm that it's working, you can put more games on your microSD card. But always be sure to leave some free space on your microSD card for saves and other system files.
