    that's right,
    please go to official support site download the firmware, unzip it,
    and copy all files to root of the memory card.

    If you copied the firmware to root of the memory card,
    maybe the card has problem

    Then it's most likely you're 3ds it's probably on an incompatible firmware.

    Way to waste money for not informing enough yourself.

    Man, this is a DS flashcard, not a 3DS one.
    You won't be playing 3DS games with it,
    nor with any flashcard if your 3DS really is on version 8.1.0-19

    Well you're not capable of running 3ds games because your 3ds needs to be 4.1-4.5 firmware... Like dude stated I believe this is a ds flash cart. You have to be really careful when buying because every place states works on latest firmware. Where did you purchase it?

    Right, that's the newest one (I have revision D cart as well).

    What type of micro sd cards do you have? What size (2GB, 4GB etc), what brand (Kingston, Sandisk etc)? If I remember correctly, the largest sd card this flashcart supports normally is 32GB. What file system have you formatted the cards with (exFat, FAT32 etc)? I think for this cart recommended format should be FAT32 (for 2GB card it should be FAT16). Can you try to properly format your sd card with this program (SD Formatter 4.0) just to see if it makes a difference (assuming you haven't done this already)? And lastly, the black screen, is it just blank screen, or does it say something like "an error has occurred"?

    It might be that your cart is just defective unfortunately. If it turns out that the cart is defective, I would contact 3ds-cart.com and ask them about it. I'm not familiar with 3ds-cart.com, but I would imagine they will replace it, give your money back, try to help you with it or something.
