Are you looking to put games on your TTDS Card? You’re in luck! It’s a fairly simple process, and with the help of this tutorial, you’ll be playing your favorite games in no time.

What is a TTDS Card?

Before we dive into the process of putting games on your TTDS Card, let’s start with the basics. A TTDS Card, also known as a Top Toy DS Card, is a flashcard used for Nintendo DS and DS Lite consoles. It allows users to play games from a microSD card rather than using physical game cartridges.

What Do You Need?

To put games on your TTDS Card, you’ll need a few things:

  • A computer
  • A microSD card (up to 32GB)
  • A microSD card reader
  • A TTDS Card
  • Game ROMs (downloaded from the internet)

The Steps:

Step 1: Format Your microSD Card

Before starting the process of putting games on your TTDS card, it’s essential to format your microSD card properly. Here are the steps:

  1. Insert the microSD card into your computer’s SD card reader.
  2. Open “My Computer” or “This PC.”
  3. Right-click on the SD card drive and select “Format.”
  4. Select “FAT32” as the file system.
  5. Click “Start” to begin formatting.

Note: Formatting will erase all data on your SD card. Make sure to back up any important files before formatting.

Step 2: Download Game ROMs

The next step is to download game ROMs from the internet. A simple Google search will give you access to a variety of ROMs. Remember that downloading copyrighted games is illegal, so make sure to avoid those.

Step 3: Extract and Save the Game ROMs on Your Computer

Once you’ve downloaded the game ROMs, extract them from their zip or rar files and save them on your computer. Make sure to keep track of where you’re saving the ROMs.

Step 4: Copy the Game ROMs to Your microSD Card

Now that you have your game ROMs saved on your computer, it’s time to transfer them to your microSD card.”

  • Locate and open the microSD card drive.
  • Create a new folder called “Games” (or any name you prefer).
  • Drag and drop the game ROM files from your computer into the “Games” folder on the microSD card.
  • Step 5: Insert Your TTDS Card Into Your DS Console

    Now that you have your games on your microSD card, it’s time to insert it into your TTDS Card and then insert it into your Nintendo DS console.

    Step 6: Play Your Games!

    Turn on your Nintendo DS console with the TTDS Card inserted, and select “Games” from the main menu. You should see all of your downloaded games listed here. Select one, and start playing!

    Note: If you encounter any issues while playing your games, try updating your TTDS Card firmware. You can find the firmware updates on the internet.


    Putting games on your TTDS Card is a simple process that involves formatting your microSD card, downloading game ROMs, copying them to your microSD card, and inserting it into your TTDS Card. With these steps, you’ll be able to play all of your favorite games on the go!
