    If you already have the mp3 which you want to use as bcm, you have just to convert it in WAV file with audacity. Then, using YATA+, you need convert this one into a bcstm file. The result must be less then 3.3 MB to work properly and has to be renamed bgm.bcstm.

    This is pretty strange. Personally I never had any kind of issues with my themes so I don't know what's happening with your device...

    Oh God, transcoding lossy formats to lossless. Thank fuck you can't tell a difference on the 3DS's speakers, but using headphones would make it very noticeable. You'd be better off finding a FLAC variant of what you're wanting to use and transcoding that to WAV. Sorry for not being actually helpful, but this is coming from someone that appreciates quality.

    I mean, for quality's sake. Any time you "convert" a lossy (mp3) format to a lossless (FLAC/WAV) format, there's a major loss in quality. And who knows, maybe using a FLAC file would work better.
