    I have always wondered something... Is there any way to get music files extracted from a ds rom? or even a gba rom?

    If so, how do you do it?

    I only recently wanted to take the intitiative to find out, lol.

    If possible, can someone give me a quick guide/link/or anything useful?

    Can you give me a way how to?

    I knew intitially that I'd have to open up the rom and take files out to begin with.

    I tried to use DSlazy and I got a sound.dat file, and I dont know what to do with it.

    But I'm all ears to what you have to say, Savagewaffle [​IMG]

    I'm not exactly sure how, but there must be a way to open the sound.dat file you got out of.

    http://nintendon.s6.xrea.com/pc/dl.php The first download here can extract them into midi files. (Though the instruments aren't right.)

    The site's gone so I can't find a download for it, but VGMTrans also should work.

    Also, both of these will export to midi. Most of the time it completely screws up the instruments.
