    How do I put pictures from my computer onto my 3DS to view.
    Is there a certain software or a certain file-name that the pictures need or something.

    When you insert the memory card from the 3DS onto a PC, you'll have a folder named DCIM, just like on normal cameras, once you enter that folder you get another folder and there you can add the pictures, I think it needs to be the same format as the other 3DS pics, just look at the extensions (all pics u take in 3D with your 3DS get two copies, a 3D file which can't be seen on the PC and a .jpg or .png file, which format it is, is what I'm not sure atm, just check them when you're adding the pics to make sure they're the same format.

    File properties also come into play. For one, some images that aren't 24bit depth color-wise. also, some images just doesn't work.

    i've had webcam images and downloaded images work with only renaming, some worked while clearing out all possible tags, and some you have to strip EVERYTHING in the file properties. there's no exact image specs yet as to which file will work and which will not.
