View Full Version : NDS Cart Size?

29-01-2010, 08:45
Quick question (Browsed the info threads quickly but didn't see it posted)
How big is the average Nintendo DS Lite game? I was considering buying 3 R4DS kits for my kids since they are losing their games constantly. I figured if there is one cart constantly in their DS it'd reduce this problem. I am wondering how large of a microSD card to purchase to make sure they all fit. Thanks.

Also I was wondering if there is any online market place where I can buy the DS Cart adapter to USB so I can rip their games onto the pc and copy them onto the R4DS. I want to buy it alone and not with a backup bundle since I'll only need 1. Thanks.

For the 2 DSlites I got here I went from 2, 4 to 8GB MicroSD so that should answer your question

Most of the games are 32-64MB with a max of 128MB (only 5% or so) so a 8GB SD holds an average of 180 games

And as for ripping your originals, it's just too much work as EVERYTHING is available online...

I appreciate it you did answer all of my questions.
I did some research and I agree it seems to be way too much work to backup our originals. Thanks again.

There are also 2048 mbit Cartriges available.
2048mbit = 256 MByte
