    Just today I recieved my m3 real package, so I opened it, downloaded newest firmware, formated my sd card (4gb sdhc kingston), copied whole SYSTEM folder onto it, created NDS folder and copied games into it.

    when I inserted microsd card into m3 real and m3 real into ds, turned on it just booted into standart nintendo screen saying "There is no DS Card insterted".

    I tried redo everything, redownloaded firmware, reformated microsd card, cleaned microsd card, m3 real card and ds slot-1... still no change.

    Am I doing something wrong or should prepare to send it back to shop and wait another 3 weeks for new piece?

    I had that problem, all I had to do was push the card in a bit more. It also happened another time when the MicroSD card wasn't in all the way. Other than that I've had no problems.

    I checked it, but both sd card and real card are insterted right. when I looked closely I think those cooper contacts (m3 real nintendo ds) aren't touching each other (on my other ds cartridges I can see scratches where it connects together), its only my thought but so far only reasonable conclusion...

    Any other ideas? Theres nothing special (software-wise) I could forget?

    you probably won't see the wear marks on your m3 real just yet unless you've took it out and reinserted it a number of times. i also just received my m3 real today but luckily for me i've got no problems (haven't tried the rumble pack after hearing rumors of i sometimes brickign peoples DS' [​IMG] )

    if you have another microSD i'd say try that, if that fails try putting some paper between your m3 real and the ds in the slot (not a lot just enough to make it more snug fitting).

    *shrug* best i can do hope it helps

    Several people have similar issues. Mine does that sometimes when I put it in. I just need to reinsert and try again. Yours might have worst contract so you should probably process a return and send it back...
