    Hi All

    I am having serious troubles trying to get my 3DS to play Roms, any help would be much appreciated

    Here is what I have...
    • WiFi R4 RTS 3DS
    • New 3DS XL Ver. 9.7.0-25E
    • 32gb microsd HC I card
    So far I have done the following...
    • I have formatted my SD card FAT32 using SDFormatterV4.7
    • Copied over all the files of R4i-3DS V1.82b English to the root of the SD ard
    • placed 4 roms also to the root
    Then this is my issue...
    • when I load up the R4 card on my 3DS called "Touch! Bomberman Land" i get to the menu and choose the 360 controller
    • I then get a list of my games, non of which have pictures/icons on what the games actually are
    • I click and game, it creates the save file and then I am stuck on a screen that has a window in the middle with nothing in it, the name of the rom above and...
    • that is as far as i get!
    What is weird is the scrolling text at the top has now frozen but the card still seems to go into power saving mode, when i touch the screen it comes back to life but I cannot go any further than this screen

    I can press the "Power on" button but that just takes me to the shut down menu

    I have looked online over and over and according to the site it says it works perfectly on v9.8.0-25 so i thought my 9.7.0-25E would be fine,

    I am at my wits end with this spent several nights doing all these weird things people say that gets it to work like changing the date and reformatting in different ways but nothing seems to make any difference

    any help would be very much appreciated

    Regards
    -Dan

    my dad works for nintendo.
    are thoose games for DS? or 3ds roms?
    that card doesn't play 3ds roms... make sure your games are .nds (and for the DS, not 3ds.)

    are you sure you are getting the games from a good source? if they don't show the pictures usually that means they are corrupted... or bad roms...

    My real question is "360 controller"?

    Sounds like he's got his setup wrong and is trying to rename a 3ds rom as ds.

    Also. That's an R4i, with a header not supported since 7.0.0

    it does not play 3ds roms...
    only ds roms...

    if you want to play 3ds roms you have to get a sky3ds.. its your only option... (or the clone qq3ds, but i never seen it again)
