    I just tried SNEmulDS on my DS and I can't load the rom. The weird thing about it is that I can't even see my rom. I have a rom in there for testing and I know how to use emulators. Also, I can't seem to figure out how to exit the options menus on this emulator. I press the buttons, they don't work, but if I touch the touch screen, it'll sort of work (flicker) but I still can't get out of the menus. The game I tried to load was only 2 MB, so I don't think that's the issue.

    As for the Genesis emulator, I can't seem to save the game regularly using the in game save for Uncharted Waters New Horizons. I can use savestates and it works really well, but I figured it would be nice to get a regular save file as well. It's nothing major.

    If the rom is a .swc, it won't work.
    Only .smc roms will work.

    SNES roms are usually all the exact same data, possibly with a different 512-byte header at the front. Doesn't really matter what the file extension is. SNEmulDS recognizes and loads multiple file extensions, including SMC, SWC, FIG, and a few others.
