    How to Use Supercard DS One

  1. 1

    Plug the microSD card into the USB adaptor. Make sure it is completely clean. If it is not already, format it into a FAT16 or FAT32 file system.

  2. 2

    Install the Supercard DS One's firmware. You can choose to run the CD that comes with the flashcard or search for the newest firmware online, which can be found at the official Supercard website:>

  3. 3

    Open the 'English' folder. Search inside of the 'DS(ONE) SDHC_version' folder for a .rar file.

  4. 4

    Extract 'scshell' and 'MSFORSC.NDS' onto your microSD card. The Supercard DS One is now completely set up.

  5. 5

    Add music, e-books, pictures or whatever home-brew apps interest you. Content can be added anywhere on the card, but it would be wise to add them to a central folder to remain organised.

  6. 6

    Turn on the system and familiarise yourself with the Supercard DS One's layout. Test out the different functions to confirm a successful set-up.

Tips and warnings

  • The touch-screen capabilities of the DS enable many PDA-like functions with the use of home brew.
