Nintendo DSi

The Nintendo DSi is a game console that features two 0.3 megapixel built-in camera and sports an ARM processor that clocks in at 133 MHz. It is also supported by 16 MB of RAM, 256 MB of internal Flash memory and an SD card expansion slot. The console also features an 802.11 internal wireless connectivity. The DSi also comes with a matte surface to prevent fingerprints from showing up, and will be released in both matte black and matte white. Pink, lime green and metallic blue colors will be available in Japan on March 20, 2009. The DSi also has five brightness settings and is powered by a 840mAh battery.

Features

The Nintendo DSi features an SD card slot that hides behind the cover on the right-side of the handheld which allows users to expand storage capacity of the unit, allowing users to view external storage of pictures, downloaded software and to play AAC audio. The unit also features a built-in audio player called Nintendo DSi Sound which serves as a voice recorder and music player of AAC audio. It does not however support MP3s. This player lets users adjust pitch, playback and add filters when the aforementioned audio is playing. Audio can also be listened to while the device is closed. Users can save and modify up to eighteen ten-second sound clips from voice recordings done via DSi's internal microphone then apply them to songs. Photos taken using the DSi can be synced to the Wii's Photo Channel. The handheld has two VGA (0.3 megapixel) digital cameras; one on the internal hinge pointed towards the user and the second one in the outer shell. The handheld now features a power button, located next to the bottom left side of the touchscreen. The power button allows users to move around, return to the menu, or play a different game, without shutting down the power every time. The DSi will use region locking for DSi-specific software, since the handheld provides Internet services tailored individually for each region and it uses rating-based parental controls, which differ by country. However, Internet browsing, photo sharing and Nintendo DS software is region-free.

    Sorry that the last couple of questions was so sloppy. I am using a PC to hopefully write to my SD chip. We are using either FROSTWIRE or LIMEWIRE to download the music in MP3 format. However the DSI uses only AAC. Thank you for your time.

    Answered by nilufer 2009-05-10:

    Converting music into compatible AAC audio files: Music files that you want to play on your Nintendo DSi may or may not be copy protected. Music files that are copy protected can not be converted to compatible AAC files for play on the Nintendo DSi. Music files that are not copy protected can be converted to different formats using commercially available music file converters. Nintendo does not provide a process to convert music files. We don’t have any specific recommendations for which program to use; however, many are available to download from the Internet. Some websites will charge you for the download, while others may be free. When researching which converter you might want to use, you will want to make sure the converter works with the file format you are currently using as well as the AAC format. For example, if your songs more

    Answered by issikiki 2009-07-03:

    It is much easier to download the AAC files into your PC then store it in your SD card. Insert the SD card into the PC or Mac. Open Windows Explorer (for PC) or Finder (for Mac) and select the drive being used by the SD Card to open it. Open another instance of Windows Explorer or Finder and navigate to where the music (AAC files) is stored. Highlight the desired file(s) and/or folders, copy them, and then paste them into the first instance of Windows Explorer or Finder to create copies on the SD
