    Hi

    By following the various forums I have learned a bit about Flash Cards.

    Friends and colleagues have asked me to change programs or other files on their flash cards (R4, M3 Real and other EZ-Flash cards).
    Tired of these constant requests to help them out I decided to write a little windows application to manage flash cards, (I'm not a professional software developer),
    however my friends have been happy using the program.

    Having created this what my friends have told me is a useful program, I though it might prove useful to others and would like to share it on this forum.

    In the download section I have uploaded the latest version.
    The installation package contains in addition to the software versions of flash cards and emulators IDEAS and VBA.
    Some language files, because I do not know those languages and I am looking for someone for the translations.
    I have not had time to write the help file. I hope to write soon.

    The features of this application are:

    •Load the basic software of the flash card.
    •Load programs and other files (like photo, music, video and dumps).
    •Delete files from a microSD.
    •Copy files from microSD to HD.
    •View a screenshot or other image associated with the individual program.
    •Write a description or notes on the individual program.
    •Search a program on your HD and on microSD.
    •Run an emulator for NDS (iDeaS) or GBA (VBA) files, for other files run a default windows application.
    •Dispaly the free space on a microSD and the calculate the hypothetical free space after loading.
    •Format the microSD.
    •Support many flashcard.
    •Use a .ZIP or .7z file for flash card software.
    •Print the list of all files displayed and the individual size.
    •Support other languages (English, French, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese and German) and customizable by edit the language file.

    Ok, in the next build I can include the no$gba support by a flag on gui. [​IMG]
    I'm also adding support for NeoGeo (NeoGeoXP) and NES (VirtuaNES) emulators.
    Now I'm trying to solve an issue that I've found on search, don't work fine with some filter.
    I know it is not very user frendly, but you can change the emulator to be used by modifying the following lines in the file NDS.INI :

    EMUL_NDS=C:\Develop\NDSv1.1\EMUL\IDEAS\ideas.exe
    EMUL_GBA=C:\Develop\NDSv1.1\EMUL\VIRTUALBOYADVANCE\VirtualBoyAdvance.exe

    For Nerdii : I have never used a Mac, I don't know exactly how it works and I have never written programs for Mac. [​IMG]
