Can regular Gameboy games work on any Nintendo DS variation?

  1. There is the Nintendo DS, the Nintendo DS lite, and the new Nintendo DSi. Do any of these systems play regular Gameboy games, and not only Gameboy Advance games? I have the regular Nintendo DS and Gameboy games do not seem to fit in the slot, while Gameboy Advance games do.

  1. DSi cannot play any GB or GBA games, but the two previous versions can play GBA, but not simple GB. However, the GBA itself is backwards-compatible with the old GB games.

  1. DSi only plays DS games, the other two also play GBA games, the GBA is reverse compatible with gameboy color.
