    I know this probably sounds like a noob question, and I apologize in advance for that. Last I heard, a long time ago, you could move photos taken from the DSi to the computer and back, but you couldn't take a picture, say, downloaded off the internet and view it on DSi. Has that ever been hacked or fixed? Has a way ever, in all this time, been found to do so? I figure if anyone will know, it'll be you guys.

    Thanks in advance!

    Thanks for the quick reply, but that's sort of circumventing the problem. I want the DSi's menu to recognize the pictures, so I can set the top-screen pictures in the menu to something other than a really crappy DSi picture. Or at least, I'd like to know if that's doable.

    im not sure what picture format dsi supports anyway if you want to find out if youve exported a picture from your ds to your computer right click>properties.

    It just appears to be a JPG, but I've tried saving another picture as one and the DSi still didn't recognize it.

    Has a way ever been found before?

    I think you're getting a bit mixed up... I think the OP want his OWN pictures to be displayed on the top screen while on the DSi 'channel' screen - not while on a flashcard own menu screen

    That's actually EXACTLY the kind of information I was looking for, thanks, even if the actual answer isn't what I hoped for. Again, I knew it was once impossible, and all Google searches confirmed that, but it seemed impossible to find any recent information on the subject.

    Unrelated, but wasn't the DSi Common Key released at some point a few months ago? I never was able to find it. I know it's against the rules to ask for it here, so I won't, but I'm surprised no one's used that to somehow allow that...
