    Hey, so basically I'm completely new to DS Xtreme. Correct me if I'm wrong, basically, the DS Xtreme, on its own, is a complete Media Center/Hardrive. Now, supposedly you can add on (to slot 2) adapters like the M3 Lite or the G6 Lite. But, aren't those systems on their own? And does that mean that the DSX would be just acting as a Passcard, meaning that you completely lose DSX functionality and change into M3/G6 Mode? Or does it simply mean you have more memory? Please clarify...

    Thanks,
    FuLei

    The DS-X is a fullblown Slot 1 Flashcart. Great for playing games. Files with .nds ending.
    It does not at this point support GBA.
    It can play SNES games through a emulator like SNESemulDS.

    DS-X can also serve as a Passcard device. To make the DS-X enter passcard mode start up the NDS with the Select button pressed.

    It is not a Media Center.

    To access any slot-2 devices, the DS-X will be used as a PassMe (such as the PassCard) device, and you're correct, you will lose "DSX functionality".

    When you run the DS-X normally (boot into the DS-X), you will not be able to access any ROMS or media stored on the slot-2 devices (M3, G6, SuperCrap, NeoGarbage, etc.). This does not mean you cannot use any slot-2 peripherals - you can still run devices such as the Opera RAM cart, or the DS Rumble Pack.

    All that I meant by Media Center was that it plays movies, music, games, and photos. But thanks a lot guys. [​IMG]

    This might have changed since we reviewed the DS-Xtreme, but if I recall correctly the DS-Xtreme passcard mode doesn't support the M3.

    I don't think it has changed just yet but if you check on the DS-Xtreme forums they mention a homebrew that can boot M3 that can be run by the DS-Xtreme. Don't remember the name though I'm afraid.

    Cartreset is the way to go. It just boots straight to the M3 with no waiting. Next best thing to official DS-X M3 passme support.

    You can use Moonshell. DS-X starts, you select Moonshell and the Moonshell configuration file are on a SLOT2 device (like videos, ...)
