    When I put my SDCard with the Micro SD into my 3DS and click it, a screen saying "Please update hardware to support latest firmware." appears.
    Today, I formatted the MicroSD and re-downloaded/copied the files onto the card. I'm not sure if I have all of the files that are needed though. Anyway, the same message appears. Also, if this helps, like last month or so, I updated my 3DS to Ver. 3.0.0-6.

    Hopefully these images can help you out in helping me:
    http://tiny.cc/m4aod -- The message that I see
    http://tiny.cc/kwkut -- The cards I have
    http://tiny.cc/9cemq -- The files on the MicroSD

    Thanks!

    is you flash card updated to the LAST fw(NOT the FW file on teh SD card)
    but the FW in the Flasf card it self

    you may need a DS/DSL the can use the card so you can run the update to make it 3.0.0-6 ready

    I don't think it is and I'm not exactly sure how to do it.
    I have a DS Lite but I'm not sure if I can do the update using the DS Lite.

    you need to run the 3DS v3.0.06 and DSI V1.4.3 Upgrade Firmware file

    on your ds/dslite

    till you do that
    the card will NOT work on your 3ds

    Gotta do it again then, apparenty you did something wrong. Alternatively try out another firmware rather than the standard kernel, for example WOOD.

    Very well, I'll try it out.

    Take the "R4i...English.rar" off your micro sd card as it is unneeded. :)

    Dude, those .rar files are archives. Yeah, you're missing two files. The "blah-bla-ba-Upgrade-Firmware" archive has files inside of it, but you need a program called "7 zip" to "extract" them. Inside you will find two files (one is a .bin file and the other is a .nds file) and both go on the root of your micro SDHC card. Then you will be able to update your flash card. :)

    By the way, to run the update you need to highlight the "R4iSDHC_Updater.nds file" and press the "A" button. Do not mess with the power until it says successful. Once it does you can press the "Power" button. Put your flashcard inside of your 3DS and it should work, if everything went correctly. If successful, delete the two files that we extracted from the "blah-bla-ba-Upgrade-Firmware" file from the first step, you no longer need them. :D

    Tell me when we have success.

    **Update** GinaYang it seems like you're having issues because you should have replied 5 minutes ago. Need help with 7 zip?

    I was just about to post xD
    Well I got everything, I'm just doing the updating part that you told me to. Thing is, I can't find the file. There's gibberish all over the bottom screen so I can't really see anything. Would you like a picture?

    Edit: I think I might've done something wrong, I'm not sure.
    I'll screenie the files and take a picture of the DS screen, hold on.

    OK you have two operating systems going on and unneeded files, SO.....
    1ST format memory card
    2nd Download Just the R4isdhc_silver v1.25 firmware and extract it using 7 zip to your freshly formatted memory card
    3rd Download the 3.0.0.6 upgrade file and extract it to the memory card also
    4th follow my instruction above about how to execute the upgrade.

    There should be NO file that has .rar at the end of it on your micro sd card before you try to update the R4isdhc card
