    Is there any option of simulating a real DS card with a flashcart?
    This was totally possible in the GBA generation, but I don't know how to do this for DS.
    I wanna trade a rare game with someone and it would suck if there was a menu.
    thanx

    Not possible. The NAND flash memory that DS flashcarts use isn't fast enough to be used as a direct replacement for the ROM in official game paks, so DS flashcarts have to do some tricks to get the games running properly, and this requires a loader. GBA flashcarts on the other hand used NOR flash memory, and that is as fast to read as ROM.

    I'm not sure exactly what you want, but a lot of DS flashcarts let you load a game automatically when they start up. They don't do it in a way that would trick anyone into thinking it was a real game pak though.
