    Okay, I recently bought an 8gb MicroSD for my M3 DS real. I have tons of games on there, but it is difficult to scroll through the huge list only viewing 4 at a time! I have tried the M3 Sakura, but i was unable to get it to work with nesDS or Lameboy. Any suggestions?!?!

    Thanks in advance!

    nesDS and lameboy should work fine on m3sakura, as long as you don't set a custom wallpaper through a bmp/gif/jpg/png file.

    Use the Sakura/iTouch dual-boot firmware. Use iTouch to boot problematic homebrew, and don't use wallpaper in Sakura as the previous poster suggested since it dramatically boosts Sakura's homebrew compatibility. I can run all the emulators fine on Sakura.

    Sakura makes browsing massive game lists very easy. I wouldn't dream of using anything else at this point.

    Firstly, I can confirm M3 Sakura runs nesDS & SNEmulDS (SNES) perfectly well (don't use Lameboy, so I can't comment). Sakura cannot run homebrews over 2MB, so it is essential to install a "multiple boot" firmware on your M3Real.
    I personally use the "Triple Boot" firmware pack (M3Sakura, M3Real, iTouch), which runs as follows:
    Normal boot - M3 Sakura loads;
    Select "X" upon boot up - M3Real loads;
    Select "Y" upon boot up - iTouch loads.

    In response to your other question about sorting/browsing games, etc:
    M3Sakura is superb and games will run from any folder (except homebrews - nesDS, etc. still need to be set up as per developer's instructions). You can apply the "hidden" feature of windows and select the folders & files you do not need to see when you turn on your DS (system folder, homebrew ini files, nesDS rom folder, default x & y boot files, etc.). This makes M3Sakura very neat & tidy.
    You could think about sorting your DS games into genres, such as: Racing, RPG, Shooters, Sport, Puzzles, Educational, etc. [​IMG]

    Lameboy does work with Sakura. I don't have a custom wallpaper myself.

    Thanks everyone, I finally got it working. I think I had a bad copy of Sakura, but I switched to the tripple boot and it works great! Thanks so much for your help!

    select the files, right click>properties
    and turn [ ]hidden into [v]hidden

    but beware, depending on your folder options it might make the files invisible on your PC too.
