    There are currently DS 5 nes emulators available and a whole bunch of GBA ones, only two DS ones I would suggest using are NesDS and its modified version and for the GBA either pocketnes (or a mod thereof) or HVCA (which just got updated by the way).
    NesDS:

    Modified NesDS

    NesterDS:
    http://www.telefragged.com/thefatal/index....t=inc_si_ds.htm
    (there is another but it is not released yet, consult the sticky in the DS emulation forum)

    GBA emulation:
    Pocketnes (I am afraid you will have to search for modified versions):
    http://hem.passagen.se/flubba/gbadown.html
    HVCA (Japanese emulator, supports more mappers and FDS games. Pocketnes is probably better though):
    http://mc68882.s53.xrea.com/garbage/ (click on AGB)

    Here is some setup intstructions I grabbed from a post by DjKaos over at dcemu:
    Decompress.
    Move all the files from \bin\split\mapr to \bin\split
    Open \bin\merge.bat in Notepad
    Find the line that says set HVCA_ARGV=-b split/hvcabase.bin hvca.bin split/mapper*.bin split/font*.raw and change mapper*.bin to m*.bin
    Copy all your roms to \bin - make sure to copy disksys.rom too if you have any Famicom Disk System roms
    Run "merge.exe"
    Choose 4 : other or unknown
    Rename hvca.bin to hvca.gba
    Copy hvca.gba to your flashcard

    The following article on the pocketheaven wiki may be of interest too: http://wiki.pocketheaven.com/Hvca

    accualy since you use a supercard you can just put the roms onto the supercard and play em cause the supercard has a intergrated nes emulator

    yes it is, drop the rom and a 64k .sav file of the same name together on you're mem card and just play.

    To save..

    1) Save in game as normal
    2) Hold (L+R) to get to the pocketnes menu and then save the savestate.
    3)return to game and use the (L+R+Select+A) to save to supercard.

    When you next load the nes rom, start the game then hold (L+R) to get the pocketnes menu and choose to load savestate

    edit.. if you look in the folder you're SC client is installed to, you will see a ready made "NesFileName.sav" save file, you can copy and re-name this to match you're nes rom (keep the .sav extension obviously)

    This blows my mind, but I'm skeptical. [​IMG]
