    Q: How do I play GBA games with my DSTT?

    To play GBA games, you must have a slot 2 cart, such as a GBA expansion cart. The most popular one is the EZFlash 3-in-1 (it's a 3-in-1 because it has rumble, it acts as extra memory required by the Opera browser, and most importantly it lets you play GBA games). The one that used to come bundled with the DSTT is the eWin 2-in-1 (no rumble). The eWin 2-in-1 is no longer manufactured and is difficult to find.

    A GBA expansion cart doesn't have its own microSD card slot. Instead, it has enough internal memory to store one GBA game at a time. The game (a .gba file) is loaded from your DSTT's microSD card to the internal memory of the GBA expansion cart in order to play the game. This process normally only takes a few seconds. As you play the game, the game save data is stored to internal memory of the GBA expansion cart, and is later saved to your slot 1 microSD card after you reboot your NDS the next time.

    In order to load GBA games stored on your DSTT's microSD card to your slot 2 GBA expansion cart, you'll either need to run a loader program such as GBA ExpLoader, or install YSMenu (which can load GBA games directly to a slot 2 without the need for a separate loader). Get GBA ExpLoader here: GBAtemp.net :: Downloads :: NDS - Applications :: GBA ExpLoader 0.58b

    If you're using the official menu, you may also be able to use GBAldr to load GBA games to the EZFlash 3-in-1 and 3-in-1+: GBAtemp.net :: Downloads :: Other EZ-Flash files :: GBAldr 3in1+ 4/4/09



    I hope this is some help to you, I only use NDS roms.
