    As of yesterday, my M3DSReal was working just fine. But today, the M3 loader doesn't come up and the ds bios just continues everytime I turn it on. I checked the microSD card and all the the files were intact, so it is apparently not corrupted. I made a backup just in case (the card is a Sandisk 4gb).

    Any suggestions on what I should do? Latest firmware was installed and working as of yesterday.

    Well, i try taking it out and putting it back in. This typically works. If it fails, then i take then end of the pencil, where the eraser is, and rub on the contact points. This supposedly gets rid of oxidation on the contacts and i have found it to be very effective. Hope it helps [​IMG]

    I tried removing it a few more times, and that seemed to do it. If it happens again, I'll use your pencil trick. Thanks for the help!

    a common problem with over-used NDS carts.
    official, or not.


    what i do(tough i only had it with official) is simply rapidly reinsert the cart a few times.
    the contacts in the DS will then rub the cart clean.
