    sure, if you don't want to use your retail ds games you can get them via flashcard, if your r4 is too old you still can use TWL slot one launcher patcher, if you mean get isos and install them directly into your sd, then I am afraid you are out of luck.

    No, buying a flashcard™ or using 3desmume are the only options. 3desmume is very limited and slow however.

    Was 3desume just released? I actually looked into it yesterday and couldn't find a release. Mind linking me?

    I haven't really been keeping up with it. You will have to filter through the thread to find some release information.

    For future reference, I recommend you install devkitARM, so you can be able to build the source when a proper binary isn't available. Anyway, here's the freshest build you'll be able to find, sitting at around two minutes old! :)

    Hmm, how many times have I seen this question before? Oh yeah, this forum. All the time. Use the search function, or Google. It's your best friend.

    Ditto with this card being recommended. My personal favorite DS flashcart so far because its main kernel is r4wood, which is one of the best UI's to use and one of the nicest looking. It's the card I personally use.
    I honestly didn't like the UI on this card. It just makes the card seem cheap to me, and I also had some issues with usrcheat.bin not being read properly which added a lot of buggy text to the cheat list.

    They're fairly hard to come by used, to be fair though, they're cheap enough that there isn't really any point buying used. As for storage, it depends how mang games you want, I should think 4GB would be sufficient, perhaps 8GB, I wouldn't by it with the cart though, the SD cards always seem rather pricey on those sites.

    If you decide to buy a flashcart (which is honestly your best option), I recommend you use GBATemp's sponsor. Support the 'temp!

    (And that experimental NDS emulator is N3DS only, by the way.)

    1) http://nds-card.com/ProShow.asp?ProID=149
    2) 4GB should be plenty, and you can get 8GB if you want to put a lot of games on there. I recommend not buying SD cards bundled with the card from these suppliers though, as they are much more expensive than if you were to buy them from either amazon or a local store. Just make sure you pick up a microSD, and not a regular SD.

    It doesn't seem that the flashcard in question supports SDXC, so avoid anything higher than 32GB.
    The 3DS itself can take higher, though - as long as it's FAT32 format.
