    Where would you put ROMs for snesDS and other emus. I just wanted to know. I don't use emus that much and was planning to. Also, I think I missed this somewhere, how does GBA emu work, like I know it wouldn't technically be called emu but how does it work?

    Thanks

    Also, does DSbrowser technically make all carts drag and drop friendly?

    perfect, one more question.

    All of the homebrew games in the download section, are any of those copyrighted, can we use them in any way we wish?

    For SNES DS, it doesn't matter, but it's not really recommended that you use this emulator. SNEmulDS is recommended, and it requires the SNES games to be in a folder called "SNES" on the root of your card. Also put the "snemul.cfg" file on the root of your card.

    Most emulators don't care where you put the games, SNEmulDS just does, though you can actually open the snemul.cfg file in Wordpad and change the location it looks for games if you wish.

    Lameboy also will automatically load a folder called "lameboy" if you do that, but it's not required.

    Isn't it better to put ROMs in a folder because I heard that putting ROMs in the root causes hang-ups and the like.

    If you use the M3 Real you MUST put them in a folder named 'NDS'

    I think you have to put them in a folder called SNES
