    On Saturday, 29 March, 2008, I ordered an M3 Real from gamersection.ca and did not receive a CD with it. I know that most/all of the software (and even updated versions) are available at various spots on the web (even though the official site is useless), but I'd still like to have a copy of the 'official' CD. If anyone can make me an image of a recent version of the driver CD, it would be greatly appreciated. I can be contacted tons of different ways:

    and can set up an FTP, Hamachi, whatever you want to use for the file transfer. Thanks very much.

    Anybody else get an M3 without a CD recently? I'd be happy to forward the image on to you once I get my hands on it.

    I honestly don't think anyone has received a driver CD with their M3. I think it's because by the time you receive the flashcard and cd, the firmware on the CD will be very obsolete.

    Your best bet to find the latest firmware is at www.linfoxdomain.com . They have the current firmwares for almost every flashcard made.

    I was wondering the same thing when I bought mine. I ended up just downloading the files online. The most up to date ones are found on this site too. [​IMG]

    They don't come with a CD anymore. The originals sometimes did. If you did get an image of one it would be so ancient you wouldn't want to go near that firmware, just use my guide and download everything in it's up-to-date form.

    Out of the corner of your eye
    The 'official' CD you get with a cart = blue & white miniCD, in paper sleeve, with old'd firmware.

    I got one. It had the 1.0a firmware. I threw it away because it was absolutely worthless.

    To those who did receive a CD - did it ONLY have the firmware (aka SYSTEM directory aka drivers)? I would have expected it to come with other things, like for example pdaDS.

    why would you want a cd that has really outdated firmware...?

    just got mine today, I saw they stoped including the CD but was pointless anyway because I wasnt going to use it anyway but also saw they changed the flash reader to a glossy one
