    I have just added 5 ROM games to my DS Lite on G6Ds Real and noticed when I unzipped it the file size was 30meg or 60Meg but when I copied on DS the file size was 247Mb,512Mb??? each game.

    1)why is this?
    2)I have 1GIG how come the unit did not gave me an error message which I am sure it is more than 1GIG if I add all 5.
    Thanks

    no problem, sometimes, flashcarts are still meseared in Mb, not MB, or games. gets real annoying but,
    i think
    Mb:MB = 128MB:1024MB

    what I wanna know is how can a game go from 20 or so mb zipped to 128mb? (dbz hakara densetsu or something like that). another game like that is ikaruga for the dc, 18mb zipped and goes to 800mb!
