    You'd best buy a so-called Slot1 card like an R4 or a CycloDS. It's a card that looks the same as a DS cartridge. You have to put a MicroSD card in with the games you've downloaded and that's it basically. With these Slot 1 device you don't need to flash your DS or patch the games. It's so simple.

    By the way, if you browse through this site you can find tons and tons of info about it so probably you'll discover that your question was completely unnescesary..

    You can find what you need here

    Seriously. All you need is:
    1) an R4 card.
    2) a Micro SD card
    3) a card reader (which is included when you buy an R4)
    4) ROMs

    Thats it. Theres nothing to it but drag and drop. It is too simple for anyone new to it to be confused or to be at a lost. Also note that, requesting and providing of ROMs/ROM Sites and any other illegal hoo-ha is against the rules and you'll earn yourself a ban.
