    Want to get the card ready for Friday when my new 3ds comes. I know the card has been updated many times and I'm getting the blue button one so looking for the latest how to guide. Google has a lot of choices and wanted to get your input and which is the best.

    Thanks! Would you mind explaining the template? I thought it was just one template that has everything or are you saying I need to DL a template for each game on the card? Re: step 7.

    Also I'm assuming diskwriter formats the card?

    Go to the site and you'll see that its something that needs to be updated constantly. So you'll have to download the latest.
