Juan the roms work on both my sd card(when I had it and it worked) and my internal storage.

1. Download Roms from either smartphone or laptop.
2. Use a file manager on smartphone to unzip/unrar the .7z/.rar files and take out the .nds extension file/ or use a laptop/pc to unzip/unrar the .7z/.rar file and take out the .nds extension files.
3. Create a folder on your smartphone using a file manager name it "DS ROMS"/on laptop/pc too if you have one.
4. Put all the .nds extension files into the folder you just created.
5.Transfer if over from your laptop to your smartphone via USB cable into the root directory/ if you download it on your smartphone then move it with file manager to the folder named "DS ROMS.
6. Done enjoy. :)

so for example you download 0168 - Mario Kart DS (U)(SCZ).7z or 5473 - Kingdom Hearts - Re-Coded (U).rar
once you unzip/unrar them take out the 0168 - Mario Kart DS (U)(SCZ).nds/5473 - Kingdom Hearts - Re-Coded (U).nds and move them to your DS ROMS folder on your SD card and it should work because that's how it works on my smartphone, both can work on internal storage or SD Card.

Problem: The app crashes back to the main menu or the desktop after loading any game
- If you're loading a compressed game (.zip, .rar, or .7z), try manually extracting the raw .nds file with an app like ZArchiver or AndroZip.
- If the compressed file was somehow corrupted, you will probably get an error while trying to uncompress it, which would explain why DraStic can't load the file either.
- If the extraction succeeds, load the .nds file directly in DraStic. (Copied as reference from the King Exophase thank you. :)

And there's no problem with having ROMS in both SD card and internal storage, or I must have all the ROMS in the same storage?

ROMS can be placed in both internal or sd card (external) storage. Doesn't matter where roms are placed bro

DraStic best be in internal storage.

But if sd card corrupt then move roms to internal.

Ur using huawei phone correct? well me too I'm getting mine next week mines a 5 inch screen quad core smartphone for $180 called Huawei ascend y635 it has 4gb internal storage so I had to delete some of my games so cut back to 1GB.

If you get a micro SD card you'll be fine. I have one and use it to hold all my ROMs
