    hi everyone... just got my very first R4 DS for slot 1 and M3 Perfect Lite for my slot 2 stuff... i've downloaded all the latest firmware and so far everything looks great!

    i do have one question tho... is it possible to turn on the DS, the R4 boots up... then i select "Slot 2".. the M3 boots up... but when i try to play a game, it black screens...

    when i take out the R4 DS (slot 1) and boot to the M3 Slot 2, the games work fine...

    can this be done without removing the R4 DS?

    also i get errors 'save data directory not found'... what is the file structure needed for the M3 to perform without those errors? thanks!

    i love these things, thanks for your time ppl!

    There is no save list for the M3 lite.

    You need to use the game manager for the games to save properly.

    No, it autodetects and writes saves. That's why it is the best slot 1 as of right now.

    Are you trying to play GBA games using the M3 in slot 2? If that's the case you need to boot your DS in GBA mode. You either do that by not having the R4 in slot 1 or when the M3 menu comes up press "Start".

    Selecting slot 2 in the R4 menu makes it boot in DS mode which cannot start GBA games.
