Recording video from a Nintendo DS

My daughter asked me last night if there’s a way to record quality video from a Nintendo DS.

After some digging I found that the only way to connect a DS to a video camera properly involves taking the DS apart, soldering and a general high-knowledge of electronics. My hope was that there some sort of GBA cart that would plug in and provide the facility.

However, I did come across the following video on YouTube which is a simple but genius alternative…

This would cover the picture – quality sound that doesn’t pick up your button clicking and nose sniffing can be achieved simply by connecting your DS headphone socket to your PC – you will need to record the video and sound at the same time but from different sources.
