    Hi. I have some questions about the Download Play function:

    1) Are there any issues in using DP from a DS with a flashcart to a 3DS?

    2) How about the opposite? Any issues in using DP from a 3DS with a DS flashcart to a DS?

    3) Running a DS software in DP in a 3DS uninstalls the DS Profile exploit, doesn't it?

    Thank you!

    In the past I've had issues with DSis and DS Lites, specifically I used Mario party on my DS Lite and tried to share it via Download Play to the other DSis. It did not work.
    May depend on the flashcard which you are using.

    Well, I would be using a DStwo, which I've used in the past to send DP between two DSs, so the flashcart shouldn't be an issue.

    In the case, I believe it should work fine since it basically simulates a DS. If you go into DP and select DS software it will boot into the DS/DS Lite software

    my dad works for nintendo.
    there are no issues. you can use a flashcart to load B\W\B2\W2 and transfer pokemons from a real D/P/PT/HG/SS game to your flashcart.

    YOU CAN'T use a D/P/PT/HG/SS rom inside a flashcart to transfer them..

    the console that downloads the app (download play), will check which cart is inserted, if it sees a flashcart or any other not compatible game it will not recognize it as a pokemon game.
    is this clear?

    also. to other people: rom trimming is the cause of breaking download play... stop trimming roms or use anther software to trim them and it will should be fine.
