    I have a question regarding NDS Games 'n' Music I've checked up a little and it seems intresting but my question can you play actual DS games with this? or it's just for music, homebrew games and emulators?

    Don't get it, its basically a stripped down flashcart that doesn't run commercial games. Get a real flashcart as it can do everything a Games 'n Music card do but much more.

    Can it run YSmenu? Always thought about that if it can it means it could play commercial games.

    Games N Music is really bad but it is the only commercial flashcart ( meaning its in places like walmart )so thats why people have it. It was my first flashcart and it was how i found ds hacking

    Heh. Games n Music sucks so much. All of Datels products die about a month later. Like the Action Replay it brakes all the time. And so does GnM

    When it was first announced I believe they stated it couldn't play actual games, but it could play homebrew.

    I remember buying a Games n Music, thinking it would last a year, maybe more. The fucking thing broke in a week! I never buy from Datel anymore.

    GnM's suck, if you want more than homebrew.... nuff said.
    I'm kinda mad though the spring loaded micro sd slot lost it's spring and casing fell off it one day long ago, yet that bastard still works somehow i've had the thing more than 2 years now....
    went through 2 ds lite that the hinge broke on and one that died for no reason but the taped together GnM still works.

    I've had a G'n'M for a while and gave another one to my nephew. They still work fine; no durability problems. They do not play commercial games. However they do play emulators, so you can play GB, GBC, NES, GG, etc games from them, as you as you get the emulator patched for the G'n'M (or apply the patch yourself).

    Mine does NOT work with my DSi. I've moved on to an Acekard 2i.

    No GnM (or any other old flashcart without i in the name) will work on DSi. It's not just yours.
