The hardware is only considered "hard to come by" because you have to make it yourself. At the end of the day a flash chip's a flash chip and if you've made a dumper before, you're very likely to figure this one out too. They're not commercially-available because with scene groups around, there's very little call for commercially-sold dumpers unless they're specifically for save files.

So really, there are no legal ways to dump 3DS games, at least publicly.

Seeing that people appear to be coding 3DS homebrew already I'm sure a software-based ROM dumper will surface sooner rather than later, at least as soon as there's some kind of filesystem support available.

I really hope the 3DS homebrew scene does take off, and that 3DS games can be dumped in such a manner.

If you have any digital copies you might be able to move them on to an SD card and put it into a computer?
I don't know because I don't have a 3DS yet.
There is some info posted on this thread but the 2nd page is full of bull- http://gbatemp.net/threads/how-to-dump-3ds-games.332789/
I think there is an emulator and graphics card you need that the thread has some info on.

That dumper looks really, really simple by the way. Weird no one in any of the "scene groups" ever released any schematics and software for it...
