    i dunno
    sigh
    We cannot make NDS ROMs into CIAs
    It is not possible
    The whole reason Nintendo has not done it is because I think THEY don't know how to
    insert DS ROMs not being able to be CIAs rant here

    You can make them into cias, sure. They just won't work.

    Actually, you can and they do work. The catch is that cart access won't work so the rom has to be one that was programmed to run entirely in the DS's RAM. Which means download play demos and possibly some homebrew. There are several demos (including some ripped from those download play demo carts, I believe) converted to dsiware cias over at that iso site.
