    help on downloading roms

    I have no idea what I'm doing. I have Nesoid and SNesoid (both paid verisons) but now i have no clue on how to get the roms onto my phone. can someone please help me step by step. I have already downloaded a super mario world rom onto my computer. its a zip file. but now I don't know what file to transfer it into on my phone.

    thanks in advanced.

    I think your question is being clouded by terminology. ROMs are NOT game files. Roms are more like a 'replacement' operating system.

    Which are you referring to?

    lol see what I mean by not knowing what I'm doing.

    k, so as I said I down loaded NESoid and SNesoid from the market. Now I know I gotta down load the games from the internet and transfer them onto my phone right? How do I do that?

    Ok. You download them to your computer, then load them on your SD card from there. Do you know how to "mount" your SD card on the phone?

    actually Roms ARE Games when you are using Emulators like NESoid. there is an app in the market called Rom Buddy that will give you unlimited downloads of any rom you are looking for. its a paid app tho. otherwise you will jus have to search the internet for NES/SNES roms.

    And thanks for correcting me, SBS. I don't use emulators, so it was easy to be wrong! :D
