I have a M3Real + GBA expansion pack (of the M3Real)
Ive put all my .nds files in the folder NDS, and that folder is in the root of my microSD.
But when I click NDS game on the M3 menu, all it says is browser.nds, which is the Opera Browser I put on it.
No other roms.

How can I solve this problem?

On the game menu, tap on the little folder icon in the bottom left (might take a few times. Touch screen response is a bit rubbish). Make sure the NDS folder is set as your default folder.

Yes, you may have it set so that it's looking for roms at a different place from where you put them e.g. you set the location to the root when you want it to search /NDS/.

Chrono_Tata's suggestion would allow you to change that to the right directory.

I have a related question: can I have it sorted into folders inside the NDS folder (so it's easier to see the saves for the game) or does it have to be IN the NDS folder? What I mean is:

/NDS/game_name/game_name.nds

versus

/NDS/game_name.nds

Is the top one acceptable? Or only the bottom? And would I be correct in assuming that, whichever way it functions, GBA functionality is the same? While SNES emulators and the like ca be stored anywhere?

NDS/directory/file will probably not work, but if you press Start you can choose what folder the NDS button picks, so you can do:

NDS1/game.nds
NDS2/game.nds

It's a little hokey and I wish I could just navigate for my games like every other card, but this is OK. I guess.

I have more than one dircectory for my roms. My favorites, ones to try and all others. It has to be like this as there is a limit to the number of roms in a directory of 127 iirc. Any more than that and the games listing in the menu becomes corrupt.
