You know,some music games on DS gives you chance to record your own compositions like Jam Sessions and Music For Everyone.Is it possible to transfer those recordings to PC and convert .mp3,wav,etc.?
(I'm using a NCard with latest updates)

Yes, you just need a cable such as this to connect the headphones jack of your DS to the line-in on your PC. You can then set it up to record as you play with Audacity or other software.

As long as the cable is fine, there are no grounding issues with power to the PC, and the volume levels are set up properly on both the DS and PC, any loss of sound quality through this method would be negligible. People have been recording game music and old vinyl records to WAV this way for years.

You could also try running the roms and your saves in an emulator to see if you can capture the audio if they will run at full speed.
