    if its in .rar, .7z, or .zip format you have to extract the files first. use Winrar

    So lemme get this straight, you want us to openly help you steal games from a disc you got from someone?

    Yeah, sorry, if you don't understand how compression and file types work, don't even bother.

    Yes, I just can't stand it when people don't keep piracy to themselves and go to a public message board for assistance in helping them do it. Honestly if you can't pirate because you don't understand it, then make your life easy and buy the games [​IMG]

    One of the big problems is we get new people here who post that only want help in pirating games and then disappear. Can't stand that either >

    when you extract it do you get lots of other .zip files?

    if that's the case then just pick any of the zip files and extract it and it will make all the zipped files into a .nds file

    I can agree with the sentiments.

    I hate that a lot of people are ok with going online, and shamelessly asking for help pirating.

    Doesn't the OP have at least one friend that can tell him rather than going online and looking like a doofus with obvious bad questions?

    There's nothing more tragic than a clumsy clueless noob pirate.

    I know how to extract files using winrar!
    I do know how to write the proper queen's english if that is what u are asking for!
    All i was askin was for a little advice as some of the roms after extraction and then further extraction still dont seem to contain the nds file is there another type of file i should be lookin for or have i downloaded a bad rom?
    Any help would be appreciated as well as the sarcasm as i am not averse to it.
    Many thanks in advance.

    Try another rom.. Or another rom site.. Usually you extract it, then there might be a whole lot of files saying the same thing e.g tw-tyu You extract one of them and it should contain the nds file.

    Tel us exactly what you have done and what the setup of the file is like..

    So, does that mean Julia Roberts was still a prostitute after she married Richard Gere ("Pretty Woman")?
