    I have just received my M3DS Reals just recently and now when I put it into my ds, it won't recognise it.
    It doesn't go into the boot screen, instead I'm stuck on the standard ds welcoming screen.
    I have copied the "SYSTEM" folder into the directory as required, but still avail...
    I'm using a 4gb Sandisk SDHC card if that is going to be any help...

    edit: sorry, i'm used to using r4's and this is the first time using this flashcart, i did not know the importance of needing pdaDS...

    could be a simple matter of the contacts needing a clean, give that a go

    Hihi

    You don't need PDA DS

    Even without an SD card installed it should display an M3 Real screen and give an error about no SD card

    If it's doing nothing at all, I'd say you've been sold a dead one (Like my ram expansion, heh)

    You could try as ^ suggested but if normal games work I'd seriously doubt it's that

    Send it back -.-

    Certain aussie DS's have trouble reading some M3 reals. Everytime someone returns it, it works in my DS.

    I hope you bought it from us so you can swap it over asap, otherwise - goodluck [​IMG]

    Could be the contacts not touching the pins properly too. Try putting some tape on the front of the cart and see if that works.

    sometimes that happens, but no big deal...eject then insert it again to fix the problem, sometimes it might take a couple tries

    I got 2, neither of them seem to be recognised by my ds or another ds...
    I think I'm going to have to return these... their cart design doesn't seem to really fit into the ds and its connectors are left wide open... :/
    Thanks for all the help though, appreciate it.

    I have had my m3real for about 2 weeks now, and I only have that problem after putting new information on my microSDHC card. I just kingston 6 gig. Everything runs smoothly, all I have to do to fix it not reading is to take the sdcard out and put it back in. youtube has a peice of paper trick that has helped some people, maybe you should try it... (cause you dont need the pda files)
