    Hi everyone.

    Can anyone tell me how to delete NDS Roms from my CycloDS without having to plug the MicroSD card into my PC?

    Currently I have to take the MicroSD card out of my NDS and then plug it into my PC and then delete the ROMS from the MicroSD card.

    Can't I just delete the ROMS through the CycloDS like the AceKard 2i?

    Thanks very much.

    Unfortunately, there is no option in the CycloDS GUI to delete files. I've been requesting this feature for a long time now on the TC forums. You're only recourse is to use a 3rd-party homebrew to delete files from it directly.

    The only 2 I know of are DSOrganize and DualSlotBrowser. Personally, I use DualSlotBrowser since DSOrganize can possibly corrupt your microSD.

    DualSlotBrowser is kinda wonky to use, but it works and I've NEVER corrupted my SD with it. Technically, DualSlotBrowser is supposed to be able to look at the files on both your slot1 and slot2 cart.....it worked with my old Supercard slot2, but not my M3 slot2. It's possible that I need to DLDI patch it for the M3.

    If there are any other homebrew apps that can delete files from the SD without having to plug it in to a PC, I'd like to know what they are.

    DSLinux can easily do it with the "rm" command. However, I'd make sure you have slot-2 RAM before using it.

    just remember to create "dustbox" folder on root folder
    to delete a file, highlight a file, press start button for a while, confirm file delete.
    then browse dustbox (kinda like recycle bin), delete the file again for a permanment delete

    That doesn't work for me. If I try to delete anything from the dustbin, it says something like "Files in the trash bin must be removed from PC".

    I just said that it doesn't work. If I delete a file then go to the dustbox to delete it again, I get this exact message:

    File-Delete Error Dialog
    Please delete files within the Trash folder from Windows.

    I can't delete them a second time from within the dustbox folder, it just gives me that message.
