    I recently ordered an acekard from nds-card.com (Awesome business btw) and went to try the card, but it gave me a message saying "System File Is Missing" when attempting to try it on my 3ds. Upon further research I realize what I need seems to be an adapter, and I found the files on the wiki necessary to update my card. Mine didn't come with an adapter, but I thought of another way.

    My main question is, is it possible to use godmode's gamecart option to put the necessary files inside of the card? It does show 2 files already inside of the gamecart, an .nds file and a trim.nds file.

    I don't think this has been posted about, but I'm not sure, as I wasn't able to find any. My main concern is, if it would ruin the acekard if I attempted this.

    Those files on the flashcart are read-only, according to GM9. I couldn't paste/rename files on my flashcarts with GodMode9, either. And those nds files on your flashcart just make up for the dummy header and icon, not the firmware itself. That's on either another partition, or another flash chip on the card.

    If you have an Android phone, you can use that to place the correct files on your card. Target also has good 2-in-1 microSD/SD card readers for about $8.
