    I don't know about official dsiware but you can convert dsi games with godmode9"nds image options" then "build cia from file"

    i know how to do that, it's not a .nds but it's ez to convert to .nds:
    1. download CTRTool and extract the .ZIP: https://mega.nz/#!GaAx3KSI!qdEMzCCSY3Cs8N578UFwl2TwcF2AttD1750v-hLSMi8
    2. go to the CTRTool folder and put the CIA file on the CTRTool named as "dsiware.cia"
    3. run "extract.bat"
    4. now you will get two files which is "00000000.app" and "00000000.app.0000.00000000"
    5. delete the "00000000.app" and rename the "00000000.app.0000.00000000" to "<game name>.nds"
    6. DONE!

    NOTE: i only tested with a DSiWare, i don't think it work with 3DS CIAs, but you can give it a try :P
    EDIT2: nvm, it work with 3DS CIAs too!




    I know this is a three-year-old thread, but you can also use GodMode9 to do what PedroxBest describes above.
    1. drop a DSiWare CIA on your SD card
    2. run GodMode9 (for many users, hold Start on 3DS boot)
    3. navigate to your CIA in drive [0:] SDCARD and select it with A
    4. select CIA image options... and Mount image to drive, then confirm you want to Enter path now with A
    5. select the .app file (this is the DSiWare NDS ROM; it should be the second item in the list) and select Copy to 0:/gm9/out
    6. copy your ROM from your SD card's /gm9/out folder to your PC or wherever it is you want to have it, rename it to .nds, etc.
    Both of these are on the page that they linked

    If you purchased the game from the eshop. You will use gm9 to dump the cia file from your console. and then proceed to decrypt the file after the game has been dumped.
