    I hear that some roms are corrupt and fail to work. I read something about CRC numbers that help you check whether a rom is a good one or bad one. Can anyone elaborate on how to tell and where to find these numbers?

    find rom info (including crc) @ http://www.advanscene.com/
    people use it to make sure the file they're downloading is genuine.

    use some app to check a file for crc info.

    i usually just test it myself.. but i always scan my roms with DSlazy for the bricking virus (which is virtually non-existant now-a-days).... i also use that program to trim my roms.... anyways.... hope this helps a little.
