    Hi all. I got an M3 with a 512 card and it worked perfectly, but today I got a 4GB Card (YEAH!), but the M3 doesn't work when it's inserted. All I get is a black screen, I don't even get the "This Product is not licensed by Nintendo" message. Any help?

    Have you tried formating it with FAT32?

    Plug the CF into your computer...it will appear in My Computer. Right click on it and click Format. Choose FAT32 in one of the drop down menus. Should work after that.

    BTW...why the heck do you need a 4GB CF Card? Doesn't that...like...defeat the purpose of having a flashcard...to play games for cheap?

    For all the games I can play for free, it's still worth it. Plus with such a high capacity, I can put all the games I'd want, and still fit in movies. Anyway, I'm gonna try formatting it.

    There are 8GB CF cards out on the market as well. You can probably fit every single game onto it or just about.
