    Can you play mp3 songs while playing a game? Is there a homebrew to do that?

    The DS does not have enough power to pull that off.

    Nope; the DS can only run one piece of software at a time. You cannot run a homebrew while another game is running at all.

    No, already confirmed by several NDS homebrew coders that NDS isn't made for multitasking!

    The closest thing you'll get is M3 Sakura/Moonshell 2.00 that lets you navigate/browse trough the cart while listening to MP3 (and that gets extremely laggy), there is NO way you could listen to the MP3 while playing a game..

    Maybe, what they should do, but I know wouldn't work is use a computer like processor, maybe use one of the older ones like a pentiumIII or IV, but I doubt that would be sufficent for game play, and there would be no way to cool such a thing, if they do it would be bulky and probably very expensive

    Keveneka has the same avatar as me.... For a second, I thought it was me. I was just like, I got hacked...? Gotta change mine... Grr...

    But doubt it... What I do is listen to music with another device.
