It can't run commercial roms because it doesn't have enough RAM or watever

What do you think of R4, M3 and DSTT?

EDIT: oh come on! You can't buy less then 5 R4's at a time!!!
Just buy the TopToy because it is the cheapest solution and gets the job done too. All the flash carts you named are great and can run 99% of all ROMs anyway so just go with cheapest one IMO.

The games n music can't play DS roms because it isn't fast enough(or maybe it's the Micro SD packaged with it) and because it will not boot .nds roms bigger than a certain size(4 MB?).

So can I play games that are < 4MB?

The card it comes with is 128MB

Well, since all DS games are 8MB or above...

IIRC, even if there was a less than 4MB DS game, it wouldn't work as flashcarts patch the games before they run.

This guy has DS demos running, but he had to trim it. It didn't even work, but other people have gotten DS Demos to work. I read about the 4 MB things some where on Youtube or something. Not that it matters too much anyways.

Alright, so if none of the demos are over 4 MB in size, and the DS contains 4 MB of RAM, that means these demos are stored in RAM and executed just like they're meant to do. This doesn't get you any closer to launching commercial roms on the GnM, since commercial games have an internal NitroFS filesystem that must be read and interpreted by the device's firmware in order to launch them properly.

The GnM appears to be only capable of loading files into the DS's RAM before execution, which allows homebrew to run but not commercial games.
