    Nesds is the best Nes emulator for ds.
    You have to unzip the roms first before you play.

    Nes games are only around 8kb.
    The whole nes library of roms is only around 700mb so it would surely fit in 2gb.

    Lol more like 15 ~140 Kb per game and it would rougly come down to ~420 MB for all game globally including the special konami games.

    My NES goodset unpacks to around 900 MB, but that's including tons of unofficial and pirate games and "100-in-1" compilations. Still definitely within the 2GB limit of the SD card.

    Use NES DS for playing, especially the updated version found a few threads down in this forum. If you come across a game that absolutely will not play with NES DS, try NesterDS+, but my guess is that you will not need to ever do that.

    NesDS has supported zip files for awhile now and has no problem loading zipped roms.

    ...
    if you need more than 2GBs to play NES roms, you have too many ROMs...
    I don't think it would be possible to play that many nes roms...
