Default Loading ROMS on Nintendo DSi

I just got a great deal on a brand new Nintendo DSi ($60 at my work, had to get it), and i'm um.....looking for ways to play games I (of course) already own for the NES/SNES/Genesis/GBA consoles. And other DS games that I want to back up as well.


From what I'm understanding after reading a little bit about it, I need a flash cart to load up the old school ROMS, but just a standard SD card to play backups of DS games. Is this correct? And any recommendations as to what flash card to use?

Thanks for your input!

Figured it out actually, thought i'd share the tip. I Paid $22 for a card (its called the Acekard) that lets you run files off of an sd card. Its the size of a ds game with a slot to stick a micro sd card. Took ten minutes to set up, now i have every NES and SNES game on it along with a few DS games i downloaded. You can basically get any game you want on it for free.

Link if you're interested.

Yeah, download NESDS and SNESDS and put them at the root of your Acekard. Take the Roms and put them in a file called Roms (also at the root) and you're all set. Took me longer to download everything than to actually put it on.
