If you want to increase your library of Nintendo DS games at a low cost, you need to first buy a micro SD card and a micro SD card adaptor. A micro SD card will allow you to play downloaded games on the Nintendo DS. Downloading "cracked games," or games that are under copyright, is illegal in most states. However, there are "home brew" games that you can download legally. These games usually are designed and uploaded by other Nintento DS users.
