    As many people know, there are a number of NDS Demos from the Download Stations available online, and i was wondering, how do they get them? Is there a DS homebrew that saves demos sent to the DS, or is it more complicated than that? If there is a homebrew, anyone got a download link? Sorry if this is in the wrong forum.

    The demos are cards that are distributed to stores, which are then able to be downloaded via Download Play.

    One of the employees of said stores would've dumped the demo from the card.

    It is actually possible to do a raw packet capture of a DS demo and reassemble it into a working ROM, as was done for several of them at E3 a few years ago, but these days most demo ROMs are just extracted from Download Stations or Wii WADs/disc images.

    Wrong terms, but on the right track.
