    I just got an M3 Perfect Lite delivered a few days ago, and just today got the chance to set it up on try it out on my DS Lite. My slot-1 device is a CycloDS. My issue is that whenever I try formatting my microSD card (a Kingston 2GB) in FAT32, the M3 doesn't seem to boot. Whether I try booting from the Cyclo's menu in slot-2 GBA or NDS mode, the screen just stays blank. I tried reformatting the card to FAT, and it seemed to work properly. However, the packaging claims it supports FAT32 formatted cards, so I was just wondering whether something is wrong with my card and if I should try to exchange it.

    A 2 gb card is ment to be formatted with FAT. FAT 32 is supposed to be for 4gb+ or sdhc cards.

    Hmm....you sure it has whatever the latest firmware was released for it in it? Mine works in FAT32. Difference is, mine is the miniSD version, though I just have a microSD in a miniSD adapter.

    I downloaded the latest one I could find... e35. It was on a site linked to from m3adapter.com (kind of stupid they don't offer their own downloads, though).
