    Hey guys.

    I want to know how I can look up pictures, that are not taken with the 3DS, on the camera app of the 3DS.

    Situation: You have a normal camera and you took some photos. For some reasons you want to watch that pictures on the 3DS too. Then you open up SD CARD>DCIM>100NIN03 and copy these pictures in. You power your 3DS, go to the camera app and then you can watch the pictures... for whatever reasons, get it?
    But now you can't watch them. But why? What have I going to do to watch them? Is this even possible?

    Thx for any help.

    I got this to work by replacing photos taken using the 3DS with my own pictures. I had to rename the inserted pictures to the same file name as whatever image it's replacing. The 3DS will load the inserted image instead, but this method isn't very practical.
