    I've updated my r4i gold 3DS to version 6.2. I haven't used to card before today.

    So now i've got some .3ds files i wish to put on it. But to no avail! .nds files work like a charm however!

    Any ideas?

    This is the flashcart manufacturers' fault for naming their cards like that. It's not surprising people get confused.

    If confused people went through all the trouble of actually ordering a flashcart online, why not first go through the little effort of reading the stickies to learn a little bit about what they're getting into?

    People should also read the item description that say it is used to play your NDS backups and NDS homebrew.

    I don't know, man... but I can't tell you all the threads that start with "Okay I just finished placing my order for this, is it good?"

    Both valid points. But you know how some people hate actually reading stuff :P
    It's not unreasonable for them to assume a cart plays 3DS games when it says "3DS" in the title. Especially now that the Gateway 3DS is out.

    Buy the Gateway 3DS, and you will get another R4;)

    The Gateway is the best flashcart dude.
