    Hi,

    I bought a m3i Zero from deal extreme, I downloaded the "M3 Sakura + TouchPod for M3 Real/M3i Zero 1.46X + 4.7gX" firmware, extracted it, put it into the root of micro sd. Then when I start the Ds up, the red light comes on the M3i Zero but It doesnt show up.

    Does anybody know why this could be? Thanks.

    Are you using a DSlite/Phat or DSi ??

    If using a DSi - has it got firmware v1.4 on it ??

    Also have you used the 'M3i Zero Core data file V1.4' file yet (it what you use with the USB cable to upgrade the m3i0 to work on DSi's with 1.4 firmware)

    the m3i zero doesn't work when you bought it, you need to flash it with the Core data file before it's useable

    Well I did try using it on a ds lite and a dsi and yes, the dsi does have 1.4.

    I will go flash it now, hope it works.

    Thanks
