    Hi,
    I just got the deluxe one, with the gba expansion and rumble pack. I've only ever used R4 and Cyclods before so I was wondering is there anything I should know about it? Also is loading firmware similar to m3/r4? What files do I need to download for 100% of the features to work?
    THANKS

    I have put the SYSTEM folder in the root, but nothing happens when I turn on my DS?

    Read the important looking bits of http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=89197
    Then download the Sakura triple loader. Decompress it and copy it to your card so that the SYSTEM and other folders are in the root. Hold Y while booting to use the iTouch firmware (homebrew), and X for the original M3R firmware (rts etc.).

    If nothing still happens, make sure of things like the pins actually touching the contacts inside your DS (I think there's a fix involving sticking a piece of paper/card to the back of your cart, but I don't have that problem so I've never looked.)

    all that happens is a screen comes up with the m3ds real logo, nothing else happens.

    Try it with another Microsd. We had reports where the Microsd was causing issue like this.

    no, my ds reads the m3real, it's just the real doesn't read the microsd, it's a sandisk 4gb.
    I read somewhere that if you run HD Tach and the results are around 0.9ms and 18mb/s then it won't run, but if it's 0.7ms and 10.1mb/s then it will work? Could somebody with a working m3 real and microsd please test this out in HD Tach?
    Thanks

    Strange - SanDisk are normally good. I have a SanDisk 2gb ultra card and it works fine, but HD Tach is playing up at the moment.

    Turn around...
    I have this sometimes, try taking out the micro sd and putting it back in a couple of times. If that doesn't work you could try putting a bit tape on the micro sd, so it's thicker and can connect easier.
