    Is it possible to rip DSiWare tracks? I like the Alt-Play music a little too much. [​IMG]

    plug a cable from the headphone jack on the 3DS to the line--in/mic jack on your computer, use some audio software to record it.

    This. Any electronics store will carry this type of cable.

    i actually did this already, using this method. you'll need better recorders though, if you want high quality. Audacity was good, but leaves much quality wise.

    If you want to rip music directly from DSiWare binaries, I'm afraid that's not possible because they are encrypted and you can't dump DSiWare the same way you can with WiiWare.

    Audacity should be fine, but there could be a problem with cheaper wires/the audio input on your PC. Most PC sound cards (aside from "professional" ones) weren't designed to capture high fidelity sound from their mic port. Therefore they may lack the proper range (most, for example, are only designed to capture mono sound).
