    I received this today which I bought from NDS-CARD.com (banner on GBATEMP) but ive got no idea how to actually use it on my 3DS.

    It didnt come with a Micro SD card but it says it has firmware on it already to work with 11.2.0-35E (which my 3DS currently is). But ive got no idea what to do.

    When I put an SD card in the R4 I get an icon of Deep Labyrinth game for the DS. But on clicking to start Im greet with a black screen saying cannot opendsmenu.dat. I know this is because my SD card is blank but I have no idea whatsoever what I'm supposed to actually put on the card software wise. Can anyone tell me what I need to put on?

    Also, I assume if I upgrade my 3DS to the latest firmware, this will stop the card working am I correct? Is there any way around this?

    go to the card maker's site and put the files on the sd card.


    Also if you are on 11.2 I would recommend installing a9lh for 3ds games (use 3ds.guide)
