    Hello, sorry if this is in the wrong section but I would like to know how to dump 3DS roms and what hardware is needed. I am looking at getting a gateway so I can get 3DS titles from overseas but would like to try it out on a few games I already have first.

    You can't.
    At the moment, none of the dumping hardware has been released or leaked.

    Added question mark.

    You know, those things that are supposed to mark a question.

    Ask the sceners if you ever meet one.
    No public dumper for the 3ds yet.
    But there may be a public one soon...

    Yeah, unlike DS ROM-dumping stuff, all the 3DS ROM-dumping stuff isn't public.

    It's likely hardware-based though.

    Yeah.
    Quite possibly a leak in the scene, or someone's made their own.

    thanks for the quick responses, shame though. Means I gotta download all the games I want to play on my GW3DS until the tools to dump the .3ds files come out.
