The M3 comes with a built in DS emulator, thats all that I know of.

DS emulators for PC? You can use Ideas and Desmume. They run commercial games with great speed. But you can't save/load like a real DS, you need to use save states and load states.

I can never seem to get Ideas or Desmume to wqrk =-(, Desmume just says its loaded and running but black screens, and Ideas just doesnt do anything and if i click the play button it crashes =-/

Check my ideas screenshots from the latest version ( here (http://forums.ngemu.com/ideas/70545-ideas-1-0-0-8c-screenshots.html). What game are you trying to run?

also there is a desmume compat list here (http://desmume.com/nds-roms-compatible.htm).

Thanks for the help, I tried running the Rayman but it wont work :-/, maybe its the place i downloaded the rom off?, I dont know if your allowed to post where you got your roms from?, but i can assure you im using it just on my pc to tie me over until I buy a DS Lite, not for illegal reasons, if you steer me in the right direction that would be alot of help.

I thought DS emulators could only run homebrew and only a few commerical games, thanks for the info

chemical= mm the best way: buy the game and dump it to your computer ;)

Only like 2 don't work with the M3 but they're not triple A titles. I think the Supercard also has near perfect compatibility.
