    So I'm liking what I've read about the M3 DS Simply. I have one main question:

    Has anyone here used it on a Mac? Oh, and it's not an Intel Mac, so Windows is out of the question (no Virtual PC either).

    There are no OS specific apps to use the M3 (or R4). All major OSes can write FAT16 and FAT32, so you should be ok.

    Yep, it's completely drag 'n' drop, however, a user called hankchill who also uses a mac, has developed his excellent 'Rominator' software for Mac and Windows so you can keep track of all your releases.

    you wont be able to run some programs like the save converter or the cheat code creator, or the dldi patch program, but other but playing ds roms requires no patching at all.

    There's an online save converter and a Mac DLDI patcher, anyway.

    Wow, very cool. Thanks for all the info. I think it might be time to finally replace my G6 Lite. It isn't the most convenient thing ever having to use my friend's PC to work on the thing.

    MicroSD Card support all OS, and M3DSS no need software to run.

    I used to DLDI patch them in terminal but recently switched to DLDI Drop a nice mac app. I do everything on my macbookpro with my M3 Simply.
