is it Read-Only-Memory i think so but that doesnt really make any sence can someone define it?
Yes, it's read-only memory; the reason it doesn't make sense is because the things you download are ROM images, not ROMs themselves, since you're not downloading the physical memory on which games are stored. Somewhere along the line people stopped bothering to say ROM images and just started calling them ROMs.
Well, basically, it's a kind of storage method which data cannot be easily modified. A ROM in this case, is a portable type of Read-Only Memory. When we talk about "ROMs", however, we are talking about the virtual images of those ROM carts. That is, the famous "dumps". You basically copy all the data in the cart into a single archive, like a pack. ISOs work the same way.
Of course, someone will give you a better definition, but I think this should be enough

nin10do... That's awesome. How did you do that? Teach me the ways of many acronyms.
And yeah, ROM is read-only memory, meaning you can't write to it.
Well that answers one of my questions. Although its freaky, since most of the roms we have played is nothing like the actual thing. Basically its data (Roms) installed inside a software (R4/Cyclo/DSTT/etc) which needs a hardware (NDS/Wii/etc) to function.
Heh now I know how upsetting it feels for the developers to see their work being stolen from them. After all we're pirates!
Just go onto the gbatemp irc channel and type INSERT_ACRONYM_HERE? (must be in caps) to get loads of game related suggestions
the force is strong in you young jedi. you must control your mediclorians and do a google search.
yup, its called ROM because you can only read it.
although, that does make EEPROM rather an oxymoron.... because flash memory is a type of EEPROM.
its like RAM really (random access memory), because pretty much anything but tape is RAM
The real question right here should be "does this topic have anything to do with this section of the forum?"
Apart from the blaring obviousness that we always talk about dumped-games (AKA ROM) for the DS in this "GBAtemp.net > Nintendo DS Discussions > NDS - Games" section of the forum...
Why shouldn't his question be relevant to the section topic?
Please play again!
Maybe it's because I thought this section of the forum is for discussing actual nds games. Also, I thought this question should belong in either General Consoles Discussion or General Off-Topic Chat section.
I w***d l**e n*****g m**e t***n to h**t y*o r***t n*w...
Are you implying it would also be irrelevant to ask what CPU stands for on a computer tech forum?
Seriously... get a clue, leave him alone, and move along.
This will be my last post in this topic.
Either you keep misinterpreting what I'm trying to say or you are trolling. Firstly, I never said TC can't post this question in this forum. Secondly, I wasn't picking on the TC. And finally, I was trying to say that this question belongs in either one of the 2 section (that I mention in my previous post) of this forum.
Your CPU example is really bad in this case. A better example of what I'm trying to say is asking "what is a good game for such and such console/handheld?" or "what's a flashcart?" in the Emulator Discussion Only section of the forum.
If you can't understand what I said in this post, then I can't help you.
Says the hypocrite flaming an other member of the forum instead of answering his question...
