    There are several methods to dumping DS games. With the DS, your options are rather limited
    1: Dump using a Slot2 cart like EZ-Flash VI. This requires either slot1 to boot into DS-Mode or FlashME
    2: Wifi dump, which is PAINFULLY SLOW. Requires a flashcart.

    With the 3DS, you can use a hacked 3DS and dump games using GodMode9

    I think he wants to write a rom to a ds cartridge.

    I was thinking that too, but I was really hoping it was typo or misunderstanding.
    If that is the case, then it's not possible.

    To the OP: DS games are Read-Only, you can't rewrite them.
