[Nintendo DS] "I'm not a Pokemon. You can't capture me." - Recording Gameplay

This is my first created topic, so hopefully this is all well and good.

Right now, I use the Dazzle + Pinnacle to capture my home console game footage (360, Wii, PS2). In the coming months my friend and I are going to be creating a gaming Web site with reviews and all that jazz. I was just wondering if any of you know how to capture game footage from the DS directly to the computer.

I know I read somewhere a long time ago that the only way was to get the cables from Nintendo themselves, but they only give it to the big time sites/magazines. Any help? Is there any other way to capture gameplay footage?

P.S. I am using a DS Lite.

    Wait, it's seriously illegal to record yourself playing a video game? O_o

    I think he is saying the only way to record DS gameplay footage decently, without the official Nintendo wires, is illegal. It is legal to record your own footage though. I assume it just has to be legal in the sense that you actually own the game and it is not burned, which I won't have to worry about since I buy all of my games.

    Its not illegal to record yourself
    but the only way to capture game footage without nintendo's equipment & straight from the game is illegal

    and wouldn't necessarily come out the way the actual hardware would display it anyway.
