    i got bored and downloaded a 3ds rom, and i"ve always wondered what would happen if you attempted to play a 3ds game on a ds so i renamed the file to nds and gave it a go on desmume 9.8 and crashed my computer......moral of the story? don't do it! o.O

    It's like filling a gas tank with water. Not as destructive but just as useless.

    Edit: Glad you self-educated yourself and reported your lol findings to us though. :P
    (Now..., I wonder what would happen if I put a UMD in my Wii?)
