    The Game Manager v30 already contains the firmware in it too, just to let people know so you don't have to download both files.

    Also, the new "Cooking Mama" works with this new firmware and so does the hamster game. Too bad the Common Sense Training game still crashes and I doubt they'll ever fix that.

    I've never updated my firmware before but i think I'm gonna do it this time. What am I supposed to do with this "updagcsd.e30" file?

    You put it in the root of your flash media and it asks you if you want to update on bootup and you hit start.

    Yeah, the common sense training one is the one I really care about, not Tony Hawk [​IMG]

    And the main change in the firmware is going to be extend features and looks (integrated moonshell) to those who don't know. Yes this updates fine (even in DS mode on mine where it previously didn't).

    make sure that you are in fact using the SD m3 adapter and not the compact flash addapter.

    if you run ther incorrect update file or a corrupt file, yes very possibly. It is firmware.

    Is there any need for the firmware or can I just stick with what I have?

    I have the M3 mini sd. Would this update work for that? Or do i have to wait for a miniSD one?

    And thanks tama_mog for the info.

    Heh, it came with a new icon.

    Yes, it's safe. I've installed each update on my M3 Lite and it works fine...

    Whenever I try to open these files, I get nothing but a bunch of folders and text file and the firmware for the CF version. There's no Game Manager or firmware for the SD (I can get it if I download the separate file.) This isn't the first time it's happened to me, it's happened on other v## updates for M3. I'm using winace to unzip/unrar it, don't see how that would make a difference. This doesn't happen to any other compressed files I've downloaded before. Can someone please help me with this? Or point me to somewhere where I can get the new game manager as a .exe?
