    You don't use moonshell as your browser. You download the firmware from ndstt.com, or from the download section here.

    Dave,

    There are other threads that will help you out, but in general:

    1. Download the firmware from the download section.
    2. Unzip the firmware on your PC. Place TTMENU.DAT and the TTMENU folder (with contents) onto your microSD card.
    3. Make a folder on your microSD card with the name "games".
    4. Place your .nds files into the "games" folder.
    5. Use the Windows "safely remove" option and then remove the microSD card from your PC.
    6. Put the TTDS into your NDS. Put the microSD card into the TTDS.
    7. Turn on your NDS. You should see a list of the .nds files you placed on the card.
    8. Select a .nds file to load it. Have fun!

    Dave,

    You might try just transferring one game to make sure it works before you do all of them. Also, leave empty space on your flash drive for save files and data that gets added to your card. I believe save files are 512KB per game. There is also a 4MB TTMENU.SYS file that gets created the first time you use it.

    It's STILL labeled as "PREVIEW" on the official DSTT site.
