how to extact audio from .nds rom files

So you really really like that game you’re playing on your nds, and the track/audio file you want is not available on the game OST, what should you do? Here’s what you should do.

  1. Dump your original NDS cartridge into a .nds rom file, or simply just go download a .nds rom file.
  2. Unpack your .nds file file using dslazy.
  3. Find sound_data.sdat in NDS_UNPACK\data\Sound\
  4. Copy it to the same directory as ndssndext.exe
  5. Fire up a command prompt, and run

ndssndext.exe sound_data.sdat

Viola~ Most, if not all the audio files ought to be in the newly created directory. And yes, I now have the really irritating mario rpg3’s sounds as my sms/ring tone : D

Files are here:

gaming / geeky stuff / HOW-TOS / really cool geeky stuff
