    Hi all

    quick q. If you are playing a GBA game and you decide to slot a DS cart in whilst it is playing, would it have any negative affect on the machine?
    I.e will it blow it?

    It wont damage the DS but it could wipe the save game memory on the DS game due to a power surge, same effect as repeatedly flippering the power switch on SNES games.

    Well a passcard isn't a game, therefore there is no gamesave on it to be lost. So, no, there's no problem.

    That's false... only SRAM can lost due to a power surge, NDS cards have EEPROM/FLASH.
