    I don't have any R4 or anything of the sort, so before I do something stupid, can I play with only an Sd Card? If so, what do I need to play It?

    The R4 or other flashcard IS what you need to play it. Without the cartridge there's no way to even insert the microSD into the DS. You can get an R4 for $6 on ShopTemp, so that might be a good investment.

    All you need is the microSD card you already have, an a flashcart to put it in.
    That's all you need. [​IMG]
    What flashcart you get depends really, if you have a DS Lite, then getting an old R4 DS from Shoptemp, and installing Wood R4 will play great.
    Or, if you have a DSi, you should get an Acekard 2i from Shoptemp, and install AKAIO, that will also work great.
    Both are pretty cheap and easy solutions.

    OH WAIT, of course, if you have the R4DS/Acekard, and the microSd card, but no way to put data on the microSD, that's no good!
    The R4DS will come with a microSD USB adapter, but the Acekard 2i doesn't, you'll have to buy one separately, shoptemp also sell them.

    Alright, I already did the stupid thing of Inserting my Sandisk Into the Ds and easily removed It.

    In other words, should I at least try? I don't have the time to go shopping for an R4 before Camping.

    ...Try to play with just the microSD? Sorry, that's just impossible, lol.
    What DS model do you have? The DSi does have an SD slot, but you can't use that to play DS games.

    You can always get the R4 or whatever after camping though.

    I have the Nintendo Ds lite, Is there any kind of "Homebrew" for that?

    A homebrew is a program you can run from a flashcart, made by an amateur, unlicensed programmer.
    Unless you buy a flashcart of some sort, you have practically no hope of running any copied DS games, or homebrew software on your DS lite.

    Yes! Like emulators games etc. you have a non sdhc card so you should look at some stores near you, they may something like a flashcard for the nds!

    But if it is an r4, PLEASE ONLY TAKE THE R4 NO R4I or r4 sdhc!

    else try supercard or acekard! [​IMG]
