    I know there is a tool for this in Win/OS X.

    I'm guessing you probably have to do something with dd....

    So the Gateway reviews/tutorials are outdated? I thought the uSD had to be some kind of special format for the Red Card. (I don't have a Gateway but have read way too much about it.)

    Of course not. You should format the micro sd card to fat32 or even better exFat, since Fat32 will have problems with big roms. Other than this, it is just a copy and paste process... Just remember to always copy roms one at a time to avoid fragmentation errors, and never delete roms, just format the sd card and start from scratch.

    Also, avoid placing Pokemon and Animal Crossing roms on the gateway, again to avoid fragmentation errors, since those save to the rom itself and could produce issues. If you can, install those as CIAs instead.

    From the GBAtemp's review of Gateway3DS:

    This outdated info was a big part of my waiting to buy a Gateway. The Windows ROM patcher/massager/crapifier used with EZ-Flash IV really was a confusing pain.

    That's the reason why Gateway should finally create a guide with all available info .... there is also shitloads of information spread all over the web, which will become a problem in the future if it's not found in one place.
