Hi I have just purchased a TTDS card for an xmas present. Could anyone let me know if I can download the ds games on to my mac. I run osx 10.4.11. Not sure if it compatible or not. Don't know very much about these things
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

I just bought one the other day, used it once and after reading the forums I now daren't use it because I bought one from deal extreme and you have to be very careful because there are fakes and even ones that don't look like fakes are blowing peoples internal fuses on their ds's. Mine works but daren't carry on using it because someone elses on here worked for a few hours and then popped their ds.

Hi joonyjoony,

I just saw your reply on the other thread. If you can download and open zip files, then I would have thought that you can do what you need on a Mac.

I will give you a link to how it is done on a PC, I guess that you can adjust the instructions to be able to do it on your Mac.

Have you checked for the 'dot' (or whatever it is) that is supposed to confirm whether it's a fake or not..?

Exactly. Doesn't matter what type of computer you have, as long as you can download and extract files, and then know where to put them on the Micro SD card that you have added the appropriate TTDS firmware onto. The TTDS website will presumably be the best place to look for the latest firmware. Might also be better than using disc supplied, as updates might have been added to their website version to address this known issue being discussed above. I haven't checked, but suggest you do. It goes without saying you should only be downloading any games you have original copies of * cough * ;-)

My card does not have a gold dot anywhere I can see on the card but on the official web site it shows the back of a true card with an inprint of which way to put your memory card into the cartridge but mine does not have this inprint, hence why I am suspicious of it. It would just be my luck of my ds to muck up so I am now very worried about using it. I need to check back on a thread previous as I asked if the internal fuses were a pain to rectify :?:?

I've bought 7 over the last couple of months from dealextreme, some with the gold dot, some with out. They all work fine no probs.

A good website for info etc is 'www.GBAtemp.net'
