    I have a few Roms that are.ex: Chronicles of Narn.7z

    I tried changing the file extensions to .NDS with no luck...the games just freeze my cart.

    Is there a proper way to covert these or are they just bad roms?

    Thanks,

    GT

    7Z is an archive format just like ZIP and RAR. You need a program capable of opening it, such as WinRAR.

    UNRAR it again until you get the NDS file and maybe an NFO or JPEG. Often distributors will double compress the files using multiple algorithms for maximum compression (well, that's what they think).
