It means that multiple people can play the game wirelessly, and only one person needs to own the game. Other friends can connect to your DS via wifi, and they'll download what they need from you so that they can play as well.

How do I connect DS to another to play the same game


In the game there should be a multiplayer menu. From there you should be able to decide whether or not it's a multi-card game. If not then have the other player go onto the "DS Download Play" tab in the start menu and tap on the game that he/she wants to play.

hi there this should help ye out

Playing multiplayer with one Game Card:
Certain Nintendo DS games require only one player have a copy of the game to play multiplayer. Those without a copy of the game will need to download the game information from the player that has the game in their system.

This feature is available on games that have this icon on their packaging:

    To download game information:

  1. Insert the Game Card into the DS Game Card Slot on one system and slide it into place until it clicks. Turn the system on by pressing the POWER button.

  2. Tap the screen using the stylus when the "Touch the Touch Screen to continue" message appears. If the host DS system's Startup Mode is set to
    • Automatic. The game's menu will appear.
    • Manual. Tap on the box for the Nintendo DS Card Slot using the stylus to start the game.

  3. Turn on the other Nintendo DS systems. For each of these systems, when the main menu appears, tap on the "DS Download Play" icon on the right, middle side of the screen to display list of available games.

  4. Tap the title of the game to begin the download.

  5. See the individual game's multiplayer instructions for additional game play information.


  • Playing multiplayer with multiple Game Cards
    Games that require each player to have a copy of the Game Card inserted into the Nintendo DS will feature this icon:
    multi_pak.gif Because each individual game title has its own method for setting up multiplayer games, you will need to consult the instruction manual for that particular title.

Trying to play a game with wifi connection. It


Try using the Nintendo DS at different locations that have either wi-fi or a friends house that has a wireless router.

If your DS doesn't work at a few different locations then that means your built-in wireless card in the DS is bad.

There is also different things you can try as well according to Nintendo, here is a link to there page as well:

I have super mario bros and trying to connect to the internet but when i search for my router its not showing up


I am assuming you a choosing mario & Luigi from the menu screen. When doing this, you don't conect to the internet, this is for gameplay between 2 people using 2 different DS's in the same room together. you can do multi or singular card play. (multi you both go to Mario & Luigi and choose multi card play. Singular card play one goes to Mario & Luigi and chooses single card play, the other person chooses ds download play from the ds menu) You can find out if a game uses the internet access by looking on the cover, it will have a blue circle with the words Wi-Fi in it.

hope this helps :)

First, it depends on what game it is, NOT ALL GAMES have a DS Download feature.

If you are using a game with the DS Download feature, have the host DS set up the game, this would just be going through the multiplayer then DS Download function.

Next, make sure you both are in the same area (10 or so feet), basically if you can be in the DS Chat with your Local Wireless Connection, you can use your DS Download feature.

While the host DS is sending the signal, the other DS will have a feature in the main DS menu (If you have auto-start on, hold start while starting up the DS and going past the warning screen), it will be called DS Download Play.

Have the person receiving the signal click that option and their DS will search for any games being sent in the general area. Then all the person with the receiving DS has to do is click the icon and he/she will connect with the hosting DS.

The receiving DS will not keep the game on the hardrive on the DS, but he/she will be able to play with you; your best bet however is to get a second cartridge, but that part is your call.

Nintendo ds - probelms connecting 2 ds's


If whatever Baseball game you have has single card download play then activate its download play option from the menu in the game. Then have the other player search for the software you're hosting. If it doesn't have download play, then you can't play like this.
