What emulator plays DS ROMs?

At first, I thought VBA could play them. I asked a Q about it.

I got an answer.

"There are two major differences between the two.

VBA = Visual Boy Advance, typically 2 megabits to 256 megabits (or 256kb to 32 megabytes)
NDS = Nintendo DS, typically 16 megabits to 2048 megabits (2MB to 256MB, very few games reach that limit)
VBA is a GB/GBA emulator. It cannot emulate NDS hardware.

So no.

So it will not work because of these ranges."

DO NOT HIDE THIS.

No$GBA and DeSmuME both play DS ROMs. If you cant find the downloads on the sites I gave just google them up they will pop up pretty easily.
