    here's my problem:
    when I try turning my DSL on with the M3i Zero, it suddenly freezes right before it suppose to do the "ding".
    it has nothing to do with my memory card as I tried with 3 different ones and also without.
    it worked perfectly fine about 20 minuets ago and then it suddenly started freezing for no reason (haven't dropped it or anything like that).
    can anyone please help me ? [​IMG] I really hope nothing happened to it.

    BTW I haven't bought a DSi yet (getting it next month) so I can't really compare between them [​IMG]

    you sure its a real m3i0 and if it is try removing the firmware and reflashing then putting the firmware back on. Oh and if ur not using touchpod/sakura thn do so.

    Hope it helped

    your moms jeans pocket
    its probably a contact issue, sometimes when u take a game card out or it gets loose while its running it freezes so that might be the problem...try taping your card to make it thicker..if thats not the problem try another firmware for your m3i 0 but i doubt thatll make a difference

    its worth a try tho

    If tapping worked the first time its a contact issue. Tapping has to work,or removing and reinserting,also check for dust.

    Wedge a piece of folded paper between the slot and cart would help force the cart to press against the contact.

    how did it die? [​IMG]
    all I did was turn off the DS and then turn it back on and it suddenly froze [​IMG]
    it was working fine before that.

    doesn't work :'(
    just sent not long ago an e-mail to the M3 Team.
    hopefully they'll help me
    if not then I guess I'll just have to ask for a replacement from DX
