    ds help please?

    my sons just brought a 'edge' card from deal extreme, unfortunately, he is 11 yrs old and i'm not up to scratch on this gaming stuff! Does anyone know how to use it? I think!! i've copied the edge.dat file to the sd card..it says copy it to the root, but i dont really know how to do that? Alsoi you should be able to load onto it, 'back up copies' cough cough, of ds games...where do i get those from?
    Sorry for asking what probably seem like dumb questions to those in the know..but he spent all his birthday money on this edge card..now i cant even help him to use it!
    would appreciate any advice.
    thank you.

    If you search for The Saint he has produced some really in-depth posts that will help you. I dont have the link I am afraid!

    How did he buy the card himself?

    The instructions for the Edge card are the 4th ones down.

    if youve already put the root folder on there so when you turn on the ds you get the interface and stuff all you need to do is download some games, torrents are quite goood and thepiratebay.org always has new releases. once you download it make sure its a .nds file and if its not you probably need to extract it. then just create a folder on your sd card called games or something then put the .nds file into it. turning back on the ds you should see the games folder then click on it and inside should be the game then click on that to run it.


    remember must own the original copy of the game before you download it or your breaking copy right law .

    have you tried utube thats how i figured out my r4 card, watch a tutorial on there

    well i ordered it from dealextreme...but he paid for it. i try to teach my kids the value of money. So he wanted it, he paid for it! He still got birthday presents of course!


    Thanks for all your help, have a feeling i shouldnt have let him get one, really dont know what i'm doing! Going to look on u-tube and see what i can find. its just that there are so many games around, and they work out expensive when you have two kids!
    so huge thanks to you all....but i may be back!!
    wish me luck!

    Did you do what theSaint said in his thread here?: hotukdeals.com/for…t=5

    Daft question, but have you actually downloaded some games from somewhere?

    What is the actual problem you are having?

    (By the way, I'm afraid I can't help whatsoever, as I've never had one of these... but I'm sure someone will be able to if you let us know as much as you can :thumbsup:)

    have tried what the saint said! yes have downloaded games. they show on the edge cardbut they wont do anything?

    what is the file extension of your game files?

    Probably .rar or .zip files you haven't extracted! Get WinRar, the games should be .nds files

    i did install winrar...and it comes up with extract files to...and then i select usb port..that the edge card is in?

    just extract them to wherever you want and then copy the extracted file(.nds) over to the edge card
