    Hey. I got my M3 Real yesterday, and now it wont even boot. It hangs on the back M3 screen as it starts up. A DSTT got stuck in it, but I pried it out. Now the M3 Real doesn't work period. I tried 3 different MicroSD, with 3 types of FW, on two different DS's. I don't know how in hell the DSTT getting stuck could mess up the M3, but it stopped working after it got caught. Are there any fixes for this?

    Could be your card is fake and you put the wrong firmware on it?

    I get this problem a lot.
    make sure you're using the correct version (asia, or not)
    then

    back everything up, reformat to FAT32 or FAT16
    and copy back WITH correct firmware.

    @ Everyone: I was using the correct regions FW. I also tried various versions of Sakura. Also, I did reformat the drives several times. As to OMFG, not a fake, and worked flawlessly 'til it randomly failed.

    I just decided to buy another one, as Gamezway has the worst support I've seen on an English site. 2 of the people I talked too didn't know a lick of English, the other was incoherant, and constantly contradicting what he/she said. I don't think I'd ever get it replaced at that rate.
