    Today I bought a DS Lite assuming that it would work with my current M3 SD and passkey2 like it did on my original ds, however I am finding that it will not play any games released after mario kart ds. When I try to play MPH, Bleach or Lost Magic the game screen turns and stays white or a white and black combo. ANY HELP IS APPRECHIATED. The sooner you guys can help me out the better. THANKS.

    well, it should work with your ds lite - however - are you sure you're using the latest soft- and firmware for your m3? since i don't actually own one i can just point you to this thread -> http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=33135
    hope it helps [​IMG]

    Dude, I hear the passkey 2 and lite have issues with the games you mention, which is why the passcard 3 is coming (or has come) out. Either invest in one of these new "passcards" or just flash your lite. Flashing's easy, and you don't have to have some crap sticking out of your ds just to play your roms.

    my passkey2 and mini sd m3 works perfectly with all games u mentioned. is the M3 firmware e18? is the game manager 3.14v?

    all of these are same as me and work perfectly. try selecting diffferent options for trim rom, no trim, fast boot, not fastboot or watever it might just work [​IMG] becuz it did to me. stick to default and it shoul dwork fine. fast boot, 1x, no trim.

    I'm just asking, but how can you not have the tools to flashme? I thought all it required was some conductive foil wrapped on a toothpick and a screwdriver. Am I wrong on this?

    Ah, i see. Understandable, but it's not that hard to get one. Borrow one from a friend or something if you really want to flash your DS.
