    Convert them to .aac or .m4a and put them on the SD or put Moonshell2 on the acekard which can play .mp3. Moonshell is the recommeneded method.

    I think when through DSi Sound it has to be .m4a and not .aac.

    Actually, the DSi only plays .aac files, which is a pain in the ass, cause no one ever uses that format. I'm just glad that my whole music library is in iTunes, and it can convert into aac format for me.

    Yeah, but I thought it only played AAC encoded .m4a files...[​IMG] I converted some music to .aac and it didn't work for me...maybe the conversion was just duff then.

    Just to clear it all up, the DSi will play ONLY .m4a, or sound only .3gp and .mp4. It DOES NOT play .aac files.
    Source: The DSi instruction manual.

    I put Niravana - Smells Like Teen Spirit.m4a on it and it played fine, never tried .aac though.

    Yes, it DOES play .aac files. Get one, and try it for yourself.
