    All DS game are on the .nds file format ... what do you mean by 'not all games have those' ?

    You do realise that you have to extract the .nds files from the archives they are packed in, right?

    Sometimes roms are in archive inside an archive, so maybe that's your problem.
    If you have files like .r00 .r01 and so on just extract them

    Not to put too fine a point on it ... you must be missing something, or doing something wrong ...

    PM me, and we'll see if we can get this sorted out for you ...

    Right-click on any of the archive files ... any one of them, that is ... don't select them all ... right-click and choose 'Extract here' ...

    No ... do not put the archived files on the card ... right-click, select 'extract here' ... you will either end up with a folder full of files, or an .nds file ...

    If you end up with a folder full of files, right-click on one of the archive files ... just one ... and select 'extract here' to extarct the .nds file ...

    For Ring of Fates?

    Just get the latest firmware for your cart, and you'll be okay ...
