My M3 lite wont boot anymore. When i turn my DS on all it does is it gets passed the pass card screen and then just becomes black and stays that way. I know there used to be an answer on how to fix this at the M3 forums, but they are gone now. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

- Did you try reformating the SD card?
- have you tried a different Micro SD card? (what brand micro SD do you have)
- did you try cleaning the contacts?

I'm guessing its the micro SD card, I haven't heard any problems so far with the M3 Real cards.

I have 3 M3 Reals and they all work fine. However though I only tested them out for a few minutes each.

Alright, it turns out the problem is with the actual GBA slot in the DS. I know this isnt the right section but any clues how to fix it?

ive had my M3 lite perfect for over a year, and its starting to happen to me too.

2 Scenarios that ive had.

-usually i have to just uninsert the M3 and reinsert it, sometimes up to five times.

but if this doesnt work --->


-Boot M3 without passcard, and see if the GBA slot registers on your DS.
- is so, reload the firmware onto your M3 and try again


note: if it were the microSD not registering, then you would get a message saying secure digitial not inserted, so your microSD should be fine

tell us how it works out
