Why not try contacting Nintendo directly? Whether by phone or e-mail, they want your business and they'll be able to give you a definite answer. Usually there's links/e-mail forms at the support site for your region, and a customer service phone number too.

this will turn out to be useless ;) and i realy dont get it how it could affect any normal pirate that only bought a Flashcart. They should crack down on the Flashcart producers and coders for their apps/hacks ,not those who use them ;)

Why should any of them who OWN a flashcart be aware???? noone can spy on you without a probable cause and a warrant ...

it sounds more like he's all about people who have flashcarts already pirating their little hearts out because no one can do anything about it to me. Assume all the best about him that you like, but you are not me, and as I've already said, I had my reasons.

Also, that line can be just as insulting with or without an 'if'.

I think he was just saying that it isn't true that "everyone" will have to buy their own ds games now because many people still have their parents buy their games for them, and this news doesn't change that.

and i think, considering how his previous comment focused more on software piracy via flashcart, how i've already had to delete one of his comments tonight from a different thread because it was entirely uncalled for, and how instead of using general terms he used the direct 'you/your', that he was trying to directly insult MetalMario by insinuating that he's not old enough to buy his own games (or that his parents buy all his games for him), and instead of deleting the insult outright i chose to call him on what he said at face value.

Oh my gosh. It's the end of the world. Now everyone has to ACTUALLY BUY THEIR DS GAMES. I'm so shocked. :-P

well,if you get your games from your parents ... i guess this doesnt affect you,does it ?

Explain to me how having to pay for your own games as opposed to having them gifted to you by family members entitles you to break the law by pirating them instead. Please. I'm dying to know.

@edhe: check your camera's docs... they may say something about files being transferred to the camera SD card via USB have to be a specific range of formats or something. either way, if it's not letting you do it, then you probably do need a separate reader. don't worry, they're pretty cheap. :3

@Toon Link: you'll need iTunes for this.

1: Open iTunes. Choose Edit, then Preferences from the drop-down menu.
2: Click the 'General' tab, then the 'Import Settings' button.
3: From the drop-down menu there, choose the format you'd like your songs converted to (AAC), and i believe there's also a drop-down for bitrate settings and whatnot. Once you've got everything to your liking, click OK to save your settings.
4: In your iTunes library, highlight the song(s) you want to convert. Right-click it/them, and choose 'Create AAC version' or whatever it says. Then sit back and relax and wait for your file(s) to convert.
5: When your files are all converted, you can find them in your iTunes folder (if you can't find them, just search your computer for '*.m4a'; that's the file extension that iTunes saves AAC-format files to on my computer iirc).

As for putting your newly-converted files onto an SD card, you'll need an SD card reader (some newer computers/laptops come with SD card readers built in, but other computers will require an external SD card reader that will likely plug in to your computer via USB)...
1: If necessary, plug in your SD card reader... if it's already built-in or hooked up, just insert your SD card into the reader slot.
2: A new volume should pop up after a few seconds under My Computer or whatever, and it will likely identify itself as an SD card. Open it.
3: Locate your AAC-converted files on your hard drive, and open that window.
4: Drag and drop/copy and paste the music you want on your DSi from your hard drive to the SD card.
5: Organize your music into folders if you like. The DSi will read up to several folders deep, though it will display only one folder deep in the DSi Sound menu (all the deeper folders will be brought up into the one same rotating wheel of available folders, so take care not to use the same name for multiple folders on the SD card, even if they've got different names for their parent folders).
6: When you're done mucking around with the SD card, dismount the volume and eject it from the reader. Pop it into your DSi and have fun with your music. :3

i've had a skin on my DSi for probably four or five months now... i think i got it back in mid-May? It's held up just fine for near-daily play/handling during that time, except for a tiny corner where the plastic protective layer (not the design layer, just the clear protective one over the design layer) has peeled up a bit, and i can easily see it holding up for months yet... except that now i want a different one, lol. :3
