SuperCard DS - Frequently Asked Questions
SC Status: Released
SuperPass Key - needed for DS roms
Price: Super Card ~ $60 USD
Price: Super Pass ~ $20 USD
Tested by GBAnet: YES
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.
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.
