my friend sold me his nds for 50$ so he can buy some new cloth.

After reading through many websites and reviews i got a bit understand of wats out there. but i got a few questions

why do u need to flash ur nds?
wat is the passcard for?
do i need to flash my ds or get a passcard for the media player + SD to work?

So how do i run backup NDS and GBA games? im not askin for the roms themself but a way to run them.

get a ds-xtreme from www.consolesource.com its the best solution so far

You don't need to flash your DS, but it's easier if you do. You can use a passcard instead. (Although you need a passcard to flash your DS...) The passcard will run the GBA cart in DS mode.

What do you mean by media player? Which one?

If you get the ds-xtreme like monaug5 said I'm pretty sure you don't need a passcard or flashing.

so if i just buy the ds-xtreme for 124.99 i can run nds and game rom nicely with out doin anything else?

like when i get it i can just plug it in my nds or nds lite and move the rom in there and im rdy to go?
