    I have an AceKard2i and an ezi flash 3 in 1, so I can play pretty much every ds and gba game, but is there any way of emulating E-Reader Cards?

    The only way to use the e-Reader on a DS/DS Lite is to use an actual one. The e-Reader DOES work on the original DS. You have to like, destroy the link port and it'll fit. (Had to learn that the hard way...) Oh, and it fits perfectly on a DS Lite.

    For Super Mario Bros 3, there's a few cheats out there that give you the e-Reader bonus levels. Besides that, I dunno.

    I used to use that all the time for the Animal Crossing cards. I got a LoZ card once, it was so awesome. I actually made money off of it because the LoZ card was so rare that people would rent the E-Reader and the card for $10 (Plus a fully refundable $50 collateral) from me so they could have it in their game.

    There is an E-Reader rom on the Net. It's pretty easy to find. You can then play each game using a different save file. I'm not sure if I'm allowed to link to the saves(as some of them contain games) so just google e-reader saves. I found some saves for the E-Reader in the first result.

    that place
    This is an E-Reader: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nintendo_e-Reader
    So basically it's an unpopular device for the GBA that read dot codes from cards for extra game content, small games, etc.
    He was asking if it was possible to play those small games on a DS.

    The good ol' e-reader

    I remember I had it along with a few animal crossing cards and Donkey Kong Jr.

    Good times....Good times

    I've done SMB3 e-reader stuff. I added tons of the otherwise unattainable items, like the boomerangs, and cape-feathers(from SMW) and unlocked all the e-reader levels on the pc, then added the save file onto my DS. It's pretty awesome, but it took forever figuring out how to do it right. It was worth it!! This is on my DStwo and DSi, but I'm sure you could do it on an acekard and DSl just the same.
