    The one thing I love about the r4 is the ability to display the game's actual name on the bottom screen. What I am referring to is that the top screen display the file name, but the bottom screen shows an image of the game as well as the real name. I bought a M3 real and was expecting the same thing, but discovered that it doesn't. Is there another card, like the Edge, Acekard or something that has this same ability? Thanks.

    I would suggest that you use a program like ROMINATOR or something to
    rename all your games to there actual name. Unless you just like to see the
    icon also in wich case I'm not sure. But at least you would be looking at the right file name.
    Hope it helps.

    He wants to see the icon and name on the bottom screen like in the game menu on the R4. Rominator just renames and organizes, does nothing special to the R4.

    But for the Cyclo, on the bottom screen it shows you the ROM name and an icon on the list where you select which game to load.

    The Y's menu which can be run on the DSTT and SCDS1 does what you want.

    Thanks for the quick replies everyone. Yeah, I am referring to the setup like in the example photo of helpme. I am surprise other cards doesn't have this natively. I think it is a great feature and I can quickly identify what the games are without having to rename them. It looks like I will be getting either the SCDSone or the DSTT. I was wanting something that can do it natively, but beggers can't be choosers.

    There isn't anything wrong with my R4 card. Alot of my coworkers wants some after messing with mine. The price of the R4 is ridiculously high and hard to find compared to when I bought it a while back. With all the other cards that are available for less, I was looking elsewhere. Again, thanks for the replies.
