    i took a chance and updated my DSi to 1.4.5E, because i needed to check the store for something. unfortunately the thing i wanted wasn't in the store, and not only that but now my m3i zero no longer works.

    first question, is there a firmware for m3i zero that works on DSi 1.4.5E?

    if not, what is my best option for a replacement cart? i don't really mind how much it costs, if the compatibility is high and the card is well supported i can pay a little more.

    thanks.

    Try buying a R4i SDHC card, it is almost 15 euros, has high game compatibility and works on all firmwares. Google it.

    right, i figured it would be between either the R4i gold or the R4i SDHC.

    my other question, i have a save file from Korg M01 on my dead card that i really want to keep - will it be compatible on the new card?

    thanks for the help guys.

    Yeah, just move your rom and your save file directly from your card.

    Although there should be a way to install a patch for the M3i if you have access to an older console where it still works on and if it's a GMP-Z003

    Hi, I received this card below.

    http://www.nds-card.com/ProShow.asp?ProID=149

    Straight out of the box it doesn't work, so I guess I need to put Wood R4 on it or something? Can anyone help me out? It does show the cart as some Konami Digital Entertainment game on the DSi menu, but when i load it the screen goes black and nothing happens. I tried dumping the Wood_R4_v1.62 on the MicroSD but same happens.

    edit// sorry, sorted it now. 1.64 is latest version not 1.62.

    r4i gold 3ds from r4ids.cn have good compatibility with sd cards, and work on NDi V1.4.5X or 3DS V11.3.0-36

    M3i Zero works on the latest dsi firmware. There was an update that you have to flash. I don't remember where to download it from, but you can find many sources with a quick google search.

    i don't have the gmp-z003 version so it's not compatible.
