    I created a rom manger for the CycloDS that I just uploaded. Some of the features are:

    It reads roms in their archived format and copies them to the cart (you don't need winzip or winrar)
    Shows the archive name a rom on your cart came from
    Add and delete roms on your cart
    Backup Saves
    Update Firmware (reads and copies the archived file)

    I've been using and tweaking this program for the last couple months and think it might be useful to others.

    Let me know what you think.

    P.S. This program requires .net 3.5 SP1. The program will automatically install it if need be, but I've found the install goes faster if you install .net on your own first.

    You can download .net here:

    The Rom Manager can be found in the Downloads section under Tools & Utilites -> Rom Managers here:

    Thanks, I actually was just giving the link to .net, but I changed it to include both links.

    I've posted a new update v1.2:

    -Added ability to update cheat files on cart from downloaded archives
    -Added support for Supercard DSTWO
    -This new version will automatically recognize if a firmware or cheat update is for the CycloDS or DSTWO cart and copy the updates to the appropriate folders.

    Does it automatically trim roms as well?

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    Can't use the program, just decided to help out. Anyway, from what I've seen so far it's pretty nice. The GUI's color is changeable, via the same palette used in Microsoft Paint.

    No, Sorry. This program only manages roms between your computer and your cart, it doesn't modify rom files.

    You won't be able to use the update features (Cheats and Firmware), but you can use the other main features. Also if saves are stored in the root and are named with a .sav extension, you can use the backup saves feature.
