    Hi, just a few questions from a confused old gamer.
    I had used my NDS with passkey + m3 adapter to play games several years ago. Really haven't used it in a long while, but was trying to get it going for my little one. It looks like from what I can find the m3 game manager and firmware hasn't been updated in a long time. Is there a new software I should use or is it a new system all together?

    Thanks for the info.

    the device you're using is outdated, if you want to play newer games and use newer firmware you have to get a new slot-1 flashcard.
    if your slot-2 flashcard is capable of playing GBA games you could get an m3real or m3i zero, since the firmware for these cards also let you boot GBA games directly using your slot-2 flashcard to run the games.

    Dont get either of those. M3 in general is just dead. If you really want something good and new, that supports some slot 2's, get a SCDS2

    If you're going to get an M3 product, I suggest getting an M3i Zero since it's supported by newer tech. I've done some research on the Supercard DS Two, and it's a really impressive card, but personally, I'm happy with my M3i Zero.

    Ultimately it's up to you to do some pretty extensive outside research in order to find out what flashcard works for you.

    Also you may want to check out the iSmart Premium---it's looking to be an impressive rival card of the SCDS Two.
