From Hacks Guide Wiki
This is the approved revision of this page, as well as being the most recent.

The 3DS can run Nintendo DS games natively by simply inserting the cartridge on the slot, but, alternatively, if you don't want to carry your cartridges around, you can use a dump from your Nintendo DS cartridge to run your game from the SD card.
