    Well, depends. Do you want to get emulators? Its easier that way, but doesn't run as smooth. Do you want to install hacks (rxTools or any CFW) that play them full speed? If you're new, I'd recommend you get the emulators....it takes a lot of understanding

    No, you can't use an SD card to put GBA/GB games on your DSi. You can use an R4 to do that. Look up the best places to get an R4.

    Lol, I'm glad Bob is your uncle :rofl: Its exactly what the video says to do. Once you put the files on the card, you put it in the DS and play
