    I don't think DoS has any anti-piracy, since it was such an early game, so maybe either you need to reformat the SD, or you got a bad dump. Try downloading the game off another site, and if that doesn't work, back up everything and format. Those are the only two things I can think of.

    some quick but easy things to try:

    *Format with "SD formatter" google it (in the options select "full erase on")
    *Don't put the game in a sub folder on the sd card
    *Disable Cheat in game
    *Disable Soft reset
    *Disable Real Time Save

    Try US and EU version.

    I believe there are 2 releases of the US version and 1 version of the game won't work on M3real (2 white screens). Try to grab it from another source and see if it helps

    I encountered freezing problems in the warp rooms with my M3 Real and Sandisk 4GB Class 2 SDHC.
    After replacing the microSD with an Panasonic class 6 all issues are gone! Even TWEWY does not freeze in the intro sequence any longer!

    Apart from that I would also recommend to try a different dump, reformatting the SD and holding your breath upon starting the game...

    works fine on my m3 real.....Never had a problem with mine.

    people who get freezing issues it's usually because their micro sd is a slow class 2 or because of fragmentation, so format your card or buy a class 6 micro sd. You can get a 4GB Class 6 Adata for around $7 - $10, try newegg!

    Don't assume a class 2 card is good enough just because it's a kingston or sandisk....I've had 2 Adata's for 2 years now and both of them have no problems playing any games.

    :/ never had problems with DoS.
    PoR was a desaster, crashed every x minutes when entering the inventory (probably a slow SD card)

    Between insane and insecure
    It has been ported over the M3 for quite some time now
    Just download the latest file from here, then in the folder called "M3Real_M3iZero YSMenu," copy everything (except How to Install.txt) to the root of your microSD card.

    Also since the M3 is a grossly out of date card, might I suggest investing in a new card such as an Acekard 2i or R4i Gold (from http://www.r4ids.cn/ ) or even a Supercard DSTwo? All are much better cards.
