    Actually I had one of these before I had a flashcart,
    It has internal memory that cant be modified to hold the games.

    no these are ds multicarts. basically theyre flash carts that have the micro sd inside soo it cant be removed and theyre loaded with games... dont waste your time getting one cuz theyre pretty expensive (like 30-100 depending on the brand) just get a flashcart and sd card for a fraction of the price...

    You used to get these for the GBA and various other cart-based systems. Like the devices you get advertising "470 games in one" where it's an N64 controller rip offyou hook up to your TV, there are various ways of inflating the game count - things like counting a version of Mario where you start on level 1-1 as one game, and a version where you start on 2-1 as another for instance, or including a load of emulated NES games.

    I used to play NES carts that my friend's dad brought back from Asia, crazy collections with hundreds of terrible rock-paper-scissors-OOPS HER TOP CAME OFF games. Very entertaining.

    This is that, but now.

    It probably can, providing they're all really crappy shovelware games which are about 2MB each.

    actually, these carts are closer to genuine carts than flashcarts, in the sense that they don't have rewritable memory. these probably have their boards reverse engineered from real carts, as the chinese are very well apt in the art of reverse engineering (they have been for decades; earliest i can remember are the multiple-in-1 NES carts).

    This stuff fills the market in this part of the world. I never got a ds one but I got many for gbc & gba. Before I was old enough for my parents to let me buy online this type of carts were the ones I bought. They arent much flashcarts as you cant rewrite whats inside & they come with horrible quality batteries that cause losing saving ability after few months but they were the only way to play the games back then for me as my parents would never allow me to 50$ every few weeks for a game while those carts were for only 5-7$.

    Actually, this seems similar to somthing a friend of mine had - the DS fireline, which she got from the US. It had 20 or so games on it too, but she said she got it from gamestop.
