    I hope you can help me please m8s, when I play a movie with the R4 card it doesn’t use the fill all the screen. I use a program called 4Videosoft Blu-ray to DPG Ripper to convert movies for it, is there a setting I should use alter when converting.
    There is another question about the picture quality its a bit grainy and the quality it was when playing
    on the Dsi XL,is there a better program to use please.

    flashcards only run in DS Mode
    so you can only use a DS sized screen and the best quality a DS can do

    convert the videos using the 3DS video tool, but you will have to split the video into 10min intervals IIRC

    The source video has a different aspect ratio from your DS screen, nothing to worry about, that's perfectly normal. No idea if your conversion software supports that, but your choices are basically cropping the video, that means cutting pieces off from the left and right side of the picture, so the middle fills your screen (and losing part of the picture), or stretching the picture, ultimately making it look like total crap. Pest & Cholera, IMHO, better keep those black bars.

    For encoding quality, look around for BatchDPG, its highest quality setting takes a lot of time to convert, but it's the best you can get on the DS.

    Thank you one again Pong,I couldn’t believe the quality difference on the 3ds when the same movie played so well on the DSi XL .
    Is there a setting on the 3DS video tool that will give the best quality, and is the best place to download it from please.
