    I read through the rules and didnt see anything against of what I am asking. If any of the admins think its innapropiate then I am sorry and delete this post.

    I am just curious as to what people use to extract the content of a DS Cartridge and make it into a .nds Rom? Is there any hardware involved?

    Again if it bothers anyone just delete this, I just thought I'd ask in the best place around.

    It is possible to Dump a DS cartidge using the M3.
    I have the rom that lets you Dump a Cartidge, but I don't know if it works with other flashcards.

    That actually depends on copyright laws of a given country.

    Jeeesus Christ! Way to bump a 5 year old topic!

    I mean, thanks for using the search tool, but did you need to bump it?

    One's inner self
    let me get my guide from antother site


    Make sure your DS can connect to your local Wifi

    Obtain latest wooddumper .nds
    (latest revision is 72)

    Download and Install Flash FXP
    click here

    Download NTSDS
    click here

    Copy Wooddumper to the Root of your Flashcard
    then place into ure DS and Boot the Wood Dumper Rom

    Once it's loaded you should see text on the bottom screen saying "Set a target card"

    Take out the flashcard, insert the game you are going to backup and press A

    now it will connect and return an IP address on screen
    It will look something like this

    card id: 0x1fc2
    secure area ok
    Connecting via WFC data ...
    Connected
    ip: 192.168.2.1
    accept

    now on your PC
    run Flash FXP

    click "site" , "site manager" , "new site"
    name this site DS DUMP or anything you like
    enter the ip address from the ds bottom screen
    choose port 21 and tick anonymous
    click apply and connect
    [​IMG]


    once you connect you should see the game in ds appear on the right
    drag it over to a folder on your pc and wait for it to finish dumping
    i would recommend using your desktop if on Vista or Windows 7
    [​IMG]


    after the dumping is finished you can close FlashFXP
    and navigate to your desktop where you dragged the file to

    extract the NDSTS
    and run it
    browse to the rom and open it
    this will now tell you information about your dump

    the most likely problem is an Underdump where the head is not complete
    your backup will still work tho
    to complete and underdump simply re-drag the item and it will allow you to "Append" and will just grab the last few bytes
