Quick DS Lite question

I may get a DS Lite for X-mas, and am just wondering how memory is handled with it. Does it use a memory stick? If so, would a memory stick used with a PSP or PS3 work with it, assuming it still had room on it? Or does Nintendo require proprietary sticks, or reformatting?

    The DS is a cartridge based system, so no additional memory is needed to save games and what not.

    You don't need any extra memory with the DS, you just put in the cart and play :)

    The NDS doesn't use a memory stick. Game saves are stored on the carts themselves. The system stores only a little data in its internal memory - such as as the Wifi profile, user name, and like the date and that's it.

    Doing single cart multiboots and DS demo downloads only puts the data into system memory, and it is lost once the system is turned off.

    No need to buy any memory sticks/cards.
