    Sorry if this question is retarded. Ive been told by my friend you can play GB(c)(a),(s)nes and I think genesis games through the action replay dsi. Now I would buy a flashcart but my dad doesn't trust any websites besides Ebay and amazon and hed throw a pissyfit about it being illegal and whatnot. If its true can you explain in detail and links to what I have to download it would be very appreciated. Thanks!

    Theyre not illegal if you already bought the game.

    You can't play them through an action replay (dsi). Flashcart is your only option...

    Wrong, unless you can copy your own copy of the game. And no, you can't use the AReplay to play any of that.

    The issue is not flash carts, the issue is downloading ROMs. You can't download a ROM even if you own the game.

    That said, you can run DS games on the 3DS just fine. For other systems it's hit or miss. Older/weaker systems like the NES and GB/C work fine, but SNES/GBA is sort of complicated. The only way to play them anywhere nearing actual speed and such is through a special cart like the DSTwo (no recommended R4-named cart will do it).

    Read these.

    if you get one of the older ones, thats not 3ds compatible, you can play them on a DSi. but the 3ds compatible arDSi dont have an micro SD slot


    EDIT: nesDS words great for nes roms. SnemulDS works good for snes.
