You can't (and shouldn't) buy ROMs from the net since they don't have the rights to sell them. The forum rules states that you can't ask for ROMs. All I need to say is to use Google to look for them.

Also, make your signature a bit smaller.

For emulation you will need at least an emulator and ROMs. The emulators are most of the time free. The ROMs are also almost always free, but they are in most countries not legal to download.
Welcome to the forum, BTW :)

Exactly. ROMs are cartridge dumps.

^ & you would refer to a game disc as an ISO (in most cases). ;)

Yes, since it's been known like that back there. Now there's a huge diversity of formats besides ISO.

hm.. I remember reading in an issue of PSM where they talked about play SNES roms on the PSP. They did give a website that sold roms legally...

StarROMs sold arcade ROMs legally, but it wasn't such a success...
