    My only way at the moment to change the ROMs onto the M3 I have is to use the MiniSD to SD Adapter in my friend's SD slot in his computer. I checked my house and the only SD thing I have is my mom's printer, which as far as I can tell I can't use the Gamemanager with it.

    Any tricks I could use so I could though, so I don't have to go out and buy something?

    That's not what I asked. If I asked for the cheapest place to get something, I would of. I asked if there was a trick so I could use what I already have.

    Well it depends how your printers SD port works. Since the port is there so you can use the printer standalone without a PC, I doubt you'd be able to use the port as a general card reader for the PC, but heck it might work. Try plugging the card in or reading the printer manual >_>.

    And even if it does work, it's gonna be a bit of hassle and might not be all that fast... I really recommend you just buy a card reader lol... they cost hardly anything.

    You should've gotten EZ4, it comes with a card reader.

    I had a mate who had to use his printer before he bought a reader...

    The card reader on the printer should come up in Windows Explorer as a seperate drive...

    The printer should work fine. If you turn the PC on, it should have several drives listed in My Computer, these are the various slots. I have a printer with a memory card reader and it works fine. Give it a whirl.

    There's a reason why I'm not buying a simple $8 or so thing. I'm going to try it with the printer first, but if I can't get it then I'll go out and buy the thing.
