SuperCard DS - Both Compact Flash (CF) and Secure Digital (SD) adapter allows you to play NDS ROMS on the Nintendo DS. And what is even more important is that it can run Commercial DS roms which so far was only possible with a more expensive NeoFlash kit.

To load commercial NDS roms using SuperCard you need:

1. SuperCard SD or CF version - with the latest FIRMWARE installed on it.
2. Compact Flash (CF) or Secure Digital (CD) card with SPECIAL patched NDS ROMS *.nds.dsi
3. SuperPass Key  (or PassMe or MagicKey) with one Nintendo DS game in it. (ANY game)

(Also works without PassMe IF you have modified your DS firmware with FlashMe when you've got the Metroid Demo or another game in your DS slot. Hold down A+B+X+Y to start. This way nothing sticks out of the back of your NDS...)

Both versions of SUPER CARD at Jandaman - Price: $54.97 USD
SuperCard + 512MB SD at Flashlinker-Store - Price: €34.00 EUR

(*** At Jandaman store look under GBA Devkits)

Download Nintendo DS Roms for R4 DS, SuperCard DSONE and DSTWO and R4i.
Play DS ROMs on NDS Lite or DSi or new XL with R4i flash card.
Play ADVANCE Games on DSi with GBA emulator and iPlayer microSD card adapter.

SuperPass (or PassMe or another clone of this PassKey) you need to fool the DS into running DS games from GBA slot. If you don't have any Nintendo DS mods you will see that any cartridge that is inserted into GBA slot will be executed one one screen. So without the SuperPass Key you can run GBA roms on Nintendo DS, Gameboy Advance, GBA SP and GB Micro *with some bugs. To play commercial NDS ROMS using SuperCard you need to make the console run all the games from GBA Cartridge slot where you will have SC with the SD Flash Card or CF Flash Card in it holding the ROMS.

Without the SuperPass you can use it only to play GBA ROMS on GBA or DS...

Good news for those who already own a GBA Super Card SD or CF version is that you can make SC start in NDS Mode by simply upgrading the firmware - well you do need one of the passthrough mods for the DS -> PassMe / Magic Key / PassKey - any one will work.

Also makers of SuperCard have announced that they will be selling their own low cost version of PassMe called SuperPass that should go on sale for ~$25-30 USD.

So if you already have GBA / NDS SuperCard and PassMe download the new Firmware:
CF SC Kernel software V1.50 - for Compact Flash adapter version
SD SC Kernel software V1.50 - for Secure Digital card adapter version
And you will also need the new Software version 2.40

UPDATE: Super Card NDS patch tool has been released! NDS rom Convert Software
From what we have tested ~50% of the ckean dumps (nds roms) after being patched work on DS. Keep in mind that this is the first release of this tool and it is in beta.

Now when you have all of this you can download 7 commercial games and 24 demo roms that RomMan has so nicely provided to us via a BitTorrent download. and
Cool104 Joker&Setline(J)(Wario) [Fixed some original card can not play problem]
Feel The Magic XYXX (U).nds
Naruto RPG 2 - Chidori vs Rasengan (J).nds
Ridge Racer DS (U).nds [some original card can not play]

(for the download to work you need one of the BitTorrent file sharing clients installed on your PC. If you are new to this I suggest you install BitLord - will let you download free movies & mp3)

supercard sd cf dsWhat has to be said about the ROMS - same as with GBA roms on SuperCard they have to be patched to work and contrary to what some websites who didn't test the card before posting news wrote - SuperCard DOES NOT play All clean nds rom dump. That said the manufactures have released a PATCH TOOL that can automatically patch clean nds dumps to work on the SuperCard.

These roms where released before the patch software came out:
Cool 104 Joker & Setline (J)(Wario).nds.dsi
Polarium (U).nds.dsi
Robots (E)(Trashman).nds.dsi
update + 3 more games
Feel The Magic XYXX (U).nds
Naruto RPG 2 - Chidori vs Rasengan (J).nds
Ridge Racer DS (U).nds

Review Features:

  • Clean dump will work after they are patched.
    Can do this at home so no need to wait for the GST releases like NeoFlash.
  • The SuperPass (SC PassMe) price will be ~ 20
