Note: That's megabits. It's only large enough for one ROM. I can't say I've ever thought of supporting this...

Like Extrems said, this isn't supported, mostly because of space constraints. 16MB capacity means that in practice you won't be able to fit 16MB ROMs unless trimmed, which excludes the majority of games. You can get an SD adapter for very cheap, so it was never deemed worth it.
