    The supercard is definitely beefy enough to play mp3's in-game, but are there any other technical limitations making this impossible?

    Supercard stuff runs on the Supercard itself. DS games run on the DS like normal.

    The DS has no operating system, there is no common code, nothing runs on top of it that can be modified. The real-time menu is literally inserted/patched into the game.

    What Rydian said, also unlike say the NES which had provisions for audio chips to do their thing and pipe it back into the console the DS does not have anything like that. On top of that trying to have both processors (the DStwo's and the DS' ones in this case) firing at once in a useful way gets very tricky.

    All this said if I ever bother to kick off my modified console thing I am so putting a media player into the console.

    You can always turn on your stereo if you want to listen to music and play video games at the same time.
