    3DS on DSI is like using BD with DVD drive... That is impossible.
    Just buy normal cart like Acekard 2i, dl games from internet and play (there is many sites with them, that is simple).

    I have an intense workload and do not currently have the hours to figure out how to reinstall games onto a new flashcart. My niece thought it would be funny to take it out of my DSi and run water over it. :cry:

    Don't know how to edit - but I want to add that I need some games to play in calc class other then the ones on my cell

    Aren't there complicated software things?

    And don't you need to add them individually?

    No, to both your questions. DS flashcarts are incredibly simple. Drag and drop.

    1. Formt microSD with special program (SD Formatter).
    2. Copy files provided by card manufactor on microSD.
    3. Copy .nds files with games, on microSD card.
    4. Play.
    Yes, it is that simple. Preloaded card are rare, and I don't think that they have 300+ games (that would take too much space).

    I've set up DS/DSi flash carts for friends before, but I was also dumping games they owned so they could play them all from one cart without having to haul their collection with them.

    I could set it up with homebrew for you and point you in the right direction to get you the games you're after. It's dead simple to add games once you "acquire" the ROMs.

    Oh well, thank you. I was hoping for something like this but in America:

    I guess they don't sell them :( Thanks though

    It's been awhile since I've setup a card. I forgot the language...homebrew is the software for the card and ROMs are the games on this site?

    Homebrew - soft made by fans (not official), including emulators, media players, simple games, etc.
    ROM - games (but there is no roms on this site).

    The loader is the interface to launch homebrew and games on your DS/DSi. Homebrew is stuff made by individual folks like applications, Calculator, ROM dumper, etc.

    Games are usually backups of commercial game cartridges, which this site forbids people to share on here. But there are many other forums that are less scrupulous you can find them on.

    Like Runescape or World of Warcraft? I'm afraid not, just RPGs with some online functionality.

    swimmagal I've edited your original post - that kind of request is not allowed. You're supposed to use flashcards only with games you legally own and backed it up yourself. If you want to do otherwise, you're on your own and GBAtemp won't help you on that ;)

    But feel free to ask questions assuming that you some games backed up somewhere, ready to go on a flashcard :)
