What to do with a Nintendo DS Answered

Somebody gave me a nintendo DS for free because it had a broken top screen. Using the power of instructables I replaced the top screen and now have a perfect Nintendo DS. Problem is...... I never play video games, I have no use for a DS. Anybody have any good ideas of things to make with a Nintendo DS.....either using the DS as a whole or savaging it for parts?

You can buy a cartridge called "Games and Music". It's not an official Nintendo product, but it turns your DS into an mp3 player, video player and you can download / write your own games for it.

It comes with a 1Gb micro-SD card, a couple-dozen simple games pre-loaded, a USB card-reader and software to convert other video formats to the format dedicated to the cartridge. If you take the games off, the 1Gb card will comfortably hold a couple of hours of converted video or oodles of music.

Hang on...

Found it (Link to Play.com ) - we bought one for #1 son's birthday, seems to work fine.

Don't forget you have a slot for GBA / SP cartridges as well - I think you used to be able to get TV or radio receivers to fit in that slot, maybe you can still find them on ebay?

Interestingly enough, engadget blogged screenshots of the new NDS TV tuner today. I had the GBA version, it was good but wouldn't fit in a DS.
