    I downloaded the fallowing because I thought they would help me from getting white screens every time I start a Game ROM [​IMG] :
    ? NDS.iNL
    ? IDIL Source Code V.2 from the website (GMTF [Game & Music])

    But it still won't work everytime I try to load up Yoshi Touch & Go and Mario Kart DS.
    I'm using Datel's Game N' Music and the Micro SD Card it came with. [​IMG] [​IMG]
    Please help me. [​IMG]

    I think you need a Pass Me Card thingy with the Datel. Best to wait for some of the more technical people to help, don't worry - hold in there and you'll get it working in the end. It might be simpler just to buy a more up-to-date Flashcard like a R4 or CycloDS from one of the recommended sites on the front page.

    I don't really like to order and I'm also not allowed, can I buy one at like BestBuy or something? [​IMG]
    Is it still posible to make it work without it though?

    Thanks for the little bit of help already though. [​IMG]

    I don't think you'll get one at Bestbuy - you MIGHT be able to find something in a smaller, independent game/electronic shop - but online is the easiest way to get a good one.

    I don't think it's possible to play ROMS without a Pass Card using the Datel. To get hold of a Pass Card, you have to go thru the same channels as getting a Flashcard - so you might as well just get the better flashcard is possible.

    Maybe someone near you will have a spare Pass Card and you can put a few bucks in an envelope and someone can send you one they don't need anymore.

    Dude, no. Just NO.

    You're on GBAtemp, you MUST have seen that absolutely nobody has one of those, and you should have seen the subforums - all of the flash crts that have subforums are cheaper AND they are at least 100 times better.

    Get a good flash cart from like, dealextreme.com or something like that. In fact, I think that Nintendo kinda despises the flash cart industry, so they will DEFINITELY not be in any store. I'd recommend getting a CycloDS Evo to start, and when you're comfortable with how a flash cart works get a Slot 2, like an EZFlash IV or a G6. Oh, and do NOT get a Media Cart. "Tis stolen work.

    The Games N Music will not run any commercial DS games. The Max Media Dock will run a few games, but it takes more effort and many games don't work.

    The best option is to buy something online, as the others have stated.

    Actually there are some smaller stores that do in fact stock Flashcarts.

    Bought an R4 from Gamebuzz in Montreal in fact.

    I was just about to say this!

    The GnM, the slot1 flashcart by Datel, only does multimedia and homebrew, NO ROMS

    Well, yeah, there are independant stores out there which sell flash carts, but then getting them online is so much easier. I actually got my R4 from this store in Vancouver. Now it's closed...
