Pre-patched version of SNEmulDS 0.5 beta are available here. M3 SD/CF, Supercard CF, and GBA Movie Player should work with the regular version without patching it.

If you download one of these, you must also get the following README and snemul.cfg. The emulator will not work properly if you don’ have the snemul.cfg in the root directory of your card.


Create a SNES directory at the root directory of your card, where you will put your roms in.
Put the patched SNEmulDS.nds at the root directory of your card.

    Downloaded the patched version for M3 Adapter (SD) put it in file ‘root’ and placed folder ‘SNES’ (filled with .smc roms) in the root folder aswell. wrror appears saying ‘please put roms in SNES directory of root folder…Help. Cheers. Ross

  • 2. archeide  |  2007-03-13 at 11.47 pm

    Ross: As written, you shouldn’t use the pre-patched M3 adapter version, use regular version without patch instead.

  • 3. JoeJoe  |  2007-03-14 at 10.03 am

    The MMD and Ninja DS files are put under the same link. Are they the same?

  • 4. archeide  |  2007-03-14 at 2.15 pm

    Joejoe : It was an error; i fixed it. thanks

  • 5. scognito  |  2007-03-14 at 2.42 pm

    Still i cannot boot the ninjads one.
    I hope you’ll listen me this time :)
    Since the 0.4 version i can boot (half time i get stuck at fs init, half time it pass the init), but when i get the directory listing of the games (i have 4 games in the /snes directory and they are listed) but i get the menu freezed and cannot continue.
    If you want i can do more test for you, we can test if you send me email or add on msn or whatever, just let me know.
    (maybe you can add some verbose debugging)
    Snesemul is in the root directory, i also tried your dldi patched and mine, same result.
    You could try to change the gamecode to something like “####” because ninjads detect it as normal game and not homebew (it indeed create a sav file).
    I changed with hex editor and tried to fix with nds tool but same behaviour (maybe -f option didn’t worked).
    As you see i’m avaiable for testing and other things, so i pass the ball to you.

    “Ross: As written, you shouldn’t use the pre-patched M3 adapter version, use regular version without patch instead. ”

    Downloaded the .4 final version. still same problem. SNEmulDS opens fine but the opening screen reads “No Files Found. Please Put ROMs in SNES directory of your CF/SD card”

    I have placed .smc files in a ‘SNES’ folder in the ‘root’ folder, In the root folder alone and outside of the ‘root’ folder but nothiing seems to work. P.S i am using v1.02 on M3 simply. Cheerz

  • 7. Sebastian  |  2007-03-14 at 7.12 pm

    First: Sorry, i cant speak really good english, im German ;-)
    Okay: Its like all other snes emus. The dont work. I have the M3 Perfect SD. All games has grafic “mistakes” (words in ” i dont know) , there are lots of Lines on the screen, and I cant see the picture.
    but: 1 Game mario alstars works perfectly. Why is that so?

  • 8. Chris  |  2007-03-14 at 9.11 pm

    Using an EZ-Flash V, I’ve also recieved the “No Files Found. Please Put…” error that Ross speaks of. This has been tested using the unpatched version, one I patched myself, as well as the pre-patched version. In any case, thank you for all your hard work! I understand that a lot of time goes into making and eventually porting an emulator, so even if I never get to try it I appreciate the effort :-)

  • 9. Jake  |  2007-03-14 at 11.19 pm

    hey all, im pretty new to this whole emulator thing, and by “pretty new” i mean i’ve never done it in my life. heh. so, i have an EZ-4 micro sd and i really want to play SNES roms on it. I just can’t seem to get anything to work… i tried draging the SNEmulDS.nds file onto the card as well as the patched one and the ds just freezes, and i have also tried using the EZ client to load the files on that way, and it just goes to two white screens. it’s killing me because i just want to play duck hunt! AAAH! please let me know what i’m doing wrong!!

  • 10. archeide  |  2007-03-15 at 11.14 am

    Ross : Oh sorry i think you said you had a “M3 Adapter SD”, but you have a “M3 simply”, which is not the same. So you have to take the patched “R4DS / M3 Simply” or patch the regular version yourself with the R4DS dldi patch. It should work, i have also a M3 Simply with 1.02

    scognito and others: i will make an other version with different use of filesystem. hope it can fix your problems.

  • 11. player1  |  2007-03-16 at 5.11 pm

    ich kan kein englich :-( hab aber den gleichen fehler.
    please put roms in SNES directory of root folder.
    kan mir jemand helfen? bitte.

  • 12. player1  |  2007-03-16 at 5.22 pm

    ich habe die M3 DS SIMPLY (MICRO SD)

  • 13. Ross  |  2007-03-16 at 5.41 pm

    Thanks to evryone giving up there time to help.
    This problem seems unsolvable my micro sd card looks like this : RossM3\root\SNES\
    I have placed my .smc roms in the SNES folder and the already patched version of SNemulDS in the root folder (along with some of my ds backups) i don’t know where i’m going wrong? Maybe you could give me the seetup of your Micro SD? Many Thanks again . ROSS

  • 14. Kiten  |  2007-03-17 at 1.59 am

    Thanks for the patched SNEmulDS !
    The same version of SNEmulDS I patched never runs :P

  • 15. scognito  |  2007-03-17 at 3.32 pm

    I think the problem is not the filesystem itself but the touch function. I tried to compile 0.4 but you didnt’ used standard makefiles so even if i tweaked them, i didn’t compile arm9 (no main function found)

  • 16. someone  |  2007-03-20 at 12.08 am

    I have the “Games N’ Music” cartridge by Datel and I have tried evry single version of this emulator on it and none work! Please HELP!!!

  • 17. Oly  |  2007-03-22 at 4.33 am

    Hi I’m using an n-card and would like to know what version will work with it. It works by uploading files via USB connected to the GBA slot. Once uploaded the GBA cart isn’t used anymore ie there is no SD, all data is stored in slot 1, no firmware update req.


  • 18. Chris  |  2007-03-23 at 7.01 pm

    I just found a patching tool to fix some homebrew in EZV. It works by changing the header to say “PASS” instead of, in this case “SNDS.” Now, the emulator works in my EZV! (Nice work, by the way!) Perhaps altering the header will work for the other flash cards in question? If so, I imagine it would be a whole lot easier than creating a whole new file system. Thanks for the excellent emulator :-)

  • 19. scognito  |  2007-03-24 at 3.11 pm

    I tried some weeks ago, changing the header and adding a loader cause NInjads to do not patch as it was a commercial rom, nothing else.
    It also freezes after boot (rom selection).

  • 20. YourNameHere  |  2007-03-26 at 2.01 pm

    ok, im probably the only one here with a ninjapass x9, but anyways……i dont know too much about how this works, but i downloaded both of the files above (.dldi.nds files), put them in the root, made a SNES directory with .smc roms, but its still saying no roms are found. maybe im asking a question that has already been asked…but what do i know? is there something im not doing right or something more i should be doing? any help would be great. thanks

  • 21. Deltamasse  |  2007-04-02 at 11.32 am


    I’ve just bought the last memory card: NCARD
    I didn’t manage to find any emulator working with or any dldi patch for it. COuld help me through please?


  • 22. chepox  |  2007-04-03 at 10.25 pm


    First, thanks for your hard work with this emu.

    I have a Ewin2 mini DS and I cant play any game, I patched (dldi) the snesmul and y put a game in the snes file in the flascard. When I start the emulador its find the rom (in my case donkey kong country or super mario world) the emulador showme the game, the number of megas and the region of the game but in this point the emulator doesnt work anymore, its freez and i have to reset my nds.

    I dont know if I´m doing something wrong but i really wants tried your emulator.

    Thanks for any answer.

  • 23. Taylor  |  2007-04-04 at 3.02 am

    I have the M3 Simply DS. everytime I attempt to boot this, it says to put roms in the /SNES/ directory. What is the problem because my files are actually in that directory. Did I do something wrong/what should I do instead? thanks

  • 24. Skyler  |  2007-04-04 at 7.01 pm

    I have to thank you for doing a bunch of work and i have a question. Like another person i saw on here, i have games n’ music by dattel and i was wondering how i could make this work? i have succeded in getting PERFECT nes roms on my ds but sadly i am still unsuccesful with snes and gba… any help?

  • 25. Adam  |  2007-04-05 at 4.11 am

    I just wanted to say they new version is awesome! Keep up the good work. I played the last version and super mario world did not play so great…now it runs awesome. I am very excited about your project. You are doing a great service to the DS community! I plan on making a donation as soon as I get my bank account straight!

  • 26. Bob  |  2007-04-05 at 1.22 pm

  • 34. Wiggymaster  |  2007-04-11 at 3.27 am

    Tried this with my Max Media Dock/Player. Put five ROMs in \SNES directory. Keeps telling me “Please put roms in the SNES directory of your root CF blah blah”. They’re there.

    I downloaded from http://snemul.free.fr/ds/dldi/SNEmulDS_mmcf.dldi.nds

    Can anyone give me a hand with this?

  • 35. Haroldo  |  2007-04-13 at 4.29 pm

    Hi, I’ve just downloaded SNEmulDS and it works fine in DS-Xtreme, just slow and some other bugs, but it is compatible with the card. I’m writting this because it is not in the compatibility list of cards.

  • 36. NEGLEFAROT  |  2007-04-17 at 6.05 pm

    1.- Respect for the creators and many many thx!!!!

    2.- In my X9, “no roms found, put some roms”, etc.

    i tried all the diferent posibilities, is there something you should recommend us to us X9ers for this case?

    or we just iterpretate silence as “wait for other versions”?

  • 37. Bob  |  2007-04-18 at 12.31 am

    Me too it keep telling me Keeps telling me “Please put roms in the SNES directory of your root CF” but they are there…

  • 48. Xevailo  |  2007-05-11 at 4.12 am

    Which patch do I need for my M3 DS Simply???
    (And HOW do I patch???)

  • 49. Toria  |  2007-05-11 at 1.27 pm

    Feel horrible saying this like everybody else but maybe it really is a problem.

    I have an M3 simply (which is the same as an R4 for all you R4 users), with the latest firmware.
    So i downloaded the patched version linked at the top of this page of this emu “SNEmulDS_r4tf.didi.nds”
    I put that in my root directory, which ithink Ross was confused about and seems to have thought he had to make a directory called root. FYI: the root directory meens the base directory, so it should be “(name of your sd card here)\SNEmulDS.nds”

    First it asks me to create a save file, so i let it, then i get a white top screen and a black bottom screen with
    “-= SNEmulDS… etc here

    FS OK!
    No Files Found.
    Please put roms into SNES directory
    of your CF/SD card”

    I assume this means the “SD card name here\SNES\…” directory which is where they are.

    Please tell me if i’ve done something wrong i’m desperate for Lufia and Chrono Trigger.

  • 50. Toria  |  2007-05-11 at 1.53 pm


    I’m clearly an idiot…. It works absolutely fine. I had named the folder “SNES Games”

    Now, is it just me or isthe sound excessively dodgy?

    Contridiction: the EMU is in the root of the flash file, I tried both the original & pre-patched version of 0.5, neither worked, and I had an SNES folder in the root. Just like all the other people having problems w/ this emu, hope the message data will help. (using SMC files)

    i’m having a tough time trying to get this emulator to work (i am using a g6ds flash card btw). now, it tells me to make a SNES directory. i wanna know if by directory it means folder, and if it means folder, why wont it work when i make the folder and put the roms in it. please help me!!!!!!

  • 72. Jebus  |  2007-07-21 at 1.37 am

    i’m very new to portable console emulation btw

  • 73. Watchdog  |  2007-07-22 at 3.34 am

    I’m new to all this emulating and modding, and I have to admit that I haven’t the first clue as to how it all works, but here goes.

    I’m running the patched SNEmulDS on Moonshell 1.6/DGPTools121 (with Zombies Ate My Neighbors .smc file) and although I’ve got it set up to play the game as it would and it’s running smoothly, I’m noticing quite glitchy sound - some effects sound really off and the music tends to skip when things like enemies are spawned.

    Also, the sprite and background graphics are refusing to layer properly - where the player would run ‘underneath’ some scenery, it simply looks like they’re showing through it, and it affects gameplay.

    I’m not sure which patches work and where I’m supposed to put them, so if anybody’s got any useful info or links they can give me, I’d much appreciate it.

  • 74. Steve  |  2007-07-24 at 7.55 pm

    i am unable to get this to work with secret of mana or Seiken Densetsu 3, the words dont show up. i know this is a background transparency issue since the same thing happens on snes9x, but on that i can disable a background. but when i try on this emulator the screen goes blank and changes back to the main menu, i can click on options in the menu but it doesn’t display them. any ideas?

  • 75. Drew  |  2007-07-25 at 3.31 pm

    any way to do this on the G6 DS real 16gb?

    cause it only has the ds cartridge and no passcard in the gba slot.

  • 76. Adam J  |  2007-07-29 at 3.57 pm

    I’m trying to get this to work on my R4DS. It starts up fine but then says it can’t find any roms. I downloaded Chrono Trigger and it was a .smc file, can SNEmulDS run it or have I got to convert it into a .nds file? If i do have to convert it, what software would you recommend?
    Thanks in advance!

  • 77. Joe Grant  |  2007-07-29 at 8.22 pm

    The SneMulDs File keeps telling me that my SNES directory is empty, even thought it is cleary in the root of my card and cleary is full of 3 .smc snes roms.

    I have a g6 real from g6 flash. I have tried with the g6 dldi patch and without

    please help

  • 78. joemul  |  2007-07-30 at 10.16 pm

    Anyone using this on their M3 Simply?

    I keep getting a ‘not support tracker?’ message when i try and use it through moonshell. When i try and use it straight from the directory (i.e. not through moonshell) it doesn’t identify any roms in the SNES folder.

    Anyone got any advice or links to a walkthrough?

    Salut, Archeide !

    Je viens de mettre le grappin sur ton émulateur : Mama Mia enfin un ému snes sur ds et pas chiant à configurer ça fait plaisir !

    A ce propos comment tu fais passer les jeux sur l’écran du bas comme démontré avec la fonction ?

    En tout cas bravo pour ton boulot, chapeau, vivement la prochaine mouture !

    Bonne continuation !

    Alright, everything works fine, except every time I boot up a rom I get graphic errors [mainly missing text, but also missing sprites] that make it unplayable. Is there a compatibility list somewhere that I’m missing?

  • 84. Rene  |  2007-08-12 at 10.10 am

    Can someone please e-mail me a patched copy of SNEmulDS for use with EZ flash V (EZ5).
    I would highly appreciate it..

  • 85. Ramzy  |  2007-08-14 at 12.35 am

    I can’t get a single game to work.
    I have downloaded every version, and tried them all.
    None worked.
    They boot, but have waaaay too many errors.
    For example, I played Megaman X, and finished a level.
    It brought me to the very beginning of the game.
    Final Fantasy Three was no different, it kept skipping/rewinding.
    I downloaded the pre-patched one (For R4), but it runs the same.I
    I have an R4DS, if it helps.
    Please help.

    greetings from Australia - I have a DS light, pass key 3 & Ewin2 micro - I’ve patched SNEmulDS with the DLDI for Ewin2 mini (as there seems to be none for the micro).

    SNEmulDS opens, finds the two games I have, but does not let me select and or run them, meanwhile the top screen is glowing white.

    Is there a fix or I’m I stuck with a crappy Ewin2? ;)

    by the sounds of it your work is excellent, well done! :) - though I have yet to experience it :(

  • 91. Matt32x  |  2007-08-17 at 5.52 am

    If you are having problems with the program not finding the directory, you haven’t patched the SNEmulDS file. GO to http://m3-forum.com/viewtopic.php?t=7468&sid=a4cc805212d6b316960290e47e23312d and read the post about patching to learn how to do it.

  • 92. Adam  |  2007-08-19 at 5.44 pm

    Wow, looks like we have a LOT of unswered questions.

    I’d get confused trying to keep track of my answers, so drop me an email at luiginut[at]yahoo[dot]com.

    But the number one rule is: PLEASE do your research before asking such basic questions. This is probably why no one is answering.

    GOOGLE. I could give you sites for but that post is a perfect example of my above statement. I bet for most roms you’d find at least 5 different sites on the first page of google results.

  • 93. Adam  |  2007-08-19 at 5.46 pm

    Oh, just to make another example, READ THE README. Many of us hate it when you ask ignorant questions like if you have to convert the SMC file. First of all, that’s impossible, and second, it’s called a README for a reason!

    I’m done now. You can still email me with the rest of the questions.

  • 94. Lina  |  2007-08-21 at 5.53 pm

    ok i really need help lol i am very dumb when it comes to this stuff. i have the Games n Music cartrdge. i put that snemulds on it, and a root folder called SNES. is there something else i need on it for it to play roms? if so, what?

    Thanks for any help.

  • 95. Ctown  |  2007-08-22 at 12.33 am

    I have some Datel’ Games n’ Music Answers. It works for nearly every card.

    1a. First go to [ http://dldi.drunkencoders.com/index.php?title=Category:SLOT-1_devices ] Download the dldi you need. I downloaded the games n’ music one. You can get the one you need.

    1b. If the file written on a gba car go to [ http://dldi.drunkencoders.com/index.php?title=Category:SLOT-2_devices ]

    2. If you have windows XP or vista download Win32 Gui. If not find linux gui or something else. There basically the same.

    3. Make a NDS folder. Inside of that make a folder called Patcher and put the file from step 1 inside it. It should be a .dldi file.

    4. Extract the gui to the patcher folder. Delete the zipped folder.

    ——Now you can patch any file you want.

    5. Go to the snemul.com/ds and look for
    http://snemul.com/ds/SNEmulDSv05b.zip on the homepage. put it in the NDS folder.

    6. extract it to the NDS folder.

    7. Open the gui.

    8. In the first “…” box locate the patcher folder. It now should say the name f your card.

    9. Locate the second “…” box and find the extracted snemulds file that you need. Games n’ music needs the .ndsfile.

    10.Click Pacth.

    11. Put the pacthed file( it doesn’t make a new file) on the micro sd,compact flash or whatever you use and open it.

    This works with any other rcently updated homebrew. It will not work with real ds roms.

  • 96. Ctown  |  2007-08-22 at 12.43 am

    Sorry for the misspellings. Also it works for every gba and ds cards on these conditions:

    It is recent homebrew.

    You can find the dldi.

    You fond the right gui.

  • 97. Ctown  |  2007-08-22 at 12.52 am

    If it cannot find SNES Games:

    Plug your card or sd or compactflash card to your computer. Say if X:\ is your drive for your homebrew card then open it. Make a “SNES” folder (not “Snes” or “SnEs” )and open it so the adress bar of your folder reads “X:\SNES” Put your .smc files inside of it. And put the emulator with the .smc files, too.

    Using Supercard, SD and Superkey, along with patched version of SNEmulDS (SNEmulDS_scsd_moon.dldi.nds) and snes roms (yes .smc) in the SNES directory, the fucking thing can’t find the fucking roms. It thinks my fucking rom directory is empty while there are 100 fucking roms there. The fucking DS reads the SNES folder as snes. I change the fucking .cfg file to look for snes but it fucking keeps looking for SNES. There doesn’t seem to be anybody with a fucking clue how to get past this. fuck

    Well for all of you who havent read the description, I’m gonna help out you R4 peoples. Make sure your .cfg file is in the root directory of your R4 and patch the .nds file with that DLDI patcher (make sure you have the DLDI file for R4) and make a SNES — MAKE A SNES FOLDER in your root directory in which you will put your games. In that folder, put your .nds SNES file in there too. Once you load up your DS after all this = it should work… some games don’t work too well remember that

    Hello Everyone,

    First of all, thanks to everyone for all the friendly help. I have downloaded the SNEmulDS_r4tf.dldi.nds and 000SNEmulDS.nds the later of which works for my R4DS for a few roms like Super Metroid for instance. However, I cannot seem to get Chrono Trigger to work without glitching out. By glitching out I mean to say, the background becomes blocky and I lose details like bridges and foilage. I also cannot seem to get Super Mario RPG to work, as each time I load it, I get a blank white screen. Please help, when you can find the time.

  • 131. Louis  |  2008-01-09 at 4.22 am

    Great emulator, I’m using it on my R4! However, Chrono Trigger runs horribly. Is the ROM to blame, or is there a patch I can download for the emulator?

  • 132. David  |  2008-01-18 at 2.56 pm

    Thanks for making this! But I have a rpoblem with my R4 patched version, I checked compatibilty and everyone says Super Metroid is running fine, however the screen in not squished enough for me to see the floor. Very hard to play the game this way, I tried using the built in squish button.

    Any advice?

  • 147. Ctown  |  2008-03-08 at 2.22 am

    For Games n’ Music owners, the best thing to do is to get DSOrganize 3.2 from Dragonminded’s blogspot page. When you extract that there will be a file that is something like “dsorganize-gnm.nds” and a folder “dsorganize”. Put both on our root. DSOrganize can patch any nds file for you. Open dsorganize.nds on your Games n’ Music card and go to browser. There find the emulator and dsorganize will patch it and then run it.

    3: place the snemul.cfg into your GAMES folder like i have

    5: place all your snes rooms in SNES folder and enjoy the emulator

    From what I see it sounds like you got the emulator to work but some games don’t work?

    I’ve read that the music doesn’t always work 100% because something doesn’t load fast enough and he would have to do some hacking but he doesn’t have the time to do it.

    In terms of the graphics and blockiness of the game for the games that don’t load, (ex super mario rpg) and a few others they run a special chip in the cartridge for the game that does not work with any of the SNEmulDS version and the creator says not to expect them to work with it any time soon.

    Also, for the blockiness of the game, that’s to be expected as no one can be absolutely perfect.

    Yah so if the emulator WORKs why would you need to patch it? According to this site it’s prepatched for the m3 simply and R4.

    Hope that helps.
    I’m just a newbie that knows a lot lol.

    (I have pro words) HEHE

    I got a M3 REAL and can’t do this emulator to run. I’m new in this matter so I don’t know what means PATCHED. So there is a beginers README file or something….Thanks
