    This is the program I did use, but, when I select the rom converte to 3ds, the sky3ds+ rename the file 3ds to 3s.bad

    1. Dump your own cart
    or
    2. Download the .3ds file

    Explanation: the CIA file doesn't have header data that's required to make a valid .3ds file, and it is also missing a proper file signature, which is required by Sky3ds (as sky3ds effectively just "mounts" the image and treats it as a retail cartridge, if the cartridge "image" isn't valid, the rom cart won't treat it as valid.

    I have 3ds files, but some games are released only in cias files in other countries.

    For eshop games now a days they are usually only getting .cia releases instead of both .3ds and .cia like they used to.
