Opening NDS files

Did your computer fail to open a NDS file? We explain what NDS files are and recommend software that we know can open or convert your NDS files.

What is a NDS file?

NDS is an acronym that stands for Nintendo Dual Screen. The Nintendo Dual Screen is a game system released by the Nintendo Company. The game system features two separate screens and a stylus that allows users a "touch screen" interaction when playing the DS video games.

Files with the .nds extension are computer files that have been encoded to enable the DS game file to be played on a user's PC. The NDS file contains images of the ROM Flash Data that is inside the Nintendo DS came cartridge and the file is then played on a computer using a Nintendo DS emulator.
