    So, I use an M3DS Real most of the time in my DS, rarely put anything else into slot 1. But, I like to use my G6lite with Rudolph's slot 2 backup loader to back up my retail carts. The problem is that my Passcard doesn't always work right; I have to mess around with it for a couple of minutes to get it to load. When I used an R4, before, I could use that to load the G6lite in DS mode, but I don't have that anymore. Is there anything I can use in Sakura to load the G6lite in DS mode? I used the backup loader to rip my Passcard, but it doesn't work as a rom. (I know touchpod can do it natively, but it's so ugly)

    Any help would be appreciated!
    Thanks

    If you press select well it is booting up it will load directly in GBA of slot-2
    Holding B goes into DS version

    Why don't you flash your Ds? You wouldn't need a passcard at all after that.

    Yeah that always helps too.
    WARNING!
    If you are using a DS Lite, flashing it can be risky, make sure if you do to isolate your flash too properly.
    But if you do brick your DS you do have a strong chance of fixing it by taking out the Slot-1 Card out and hold "Start and Select" when you turn on your DS. If that doesn't work hold "A+B+Y+X+Start+Select" that one normally always boots up directly.

    Wow that was random, just a bit of helpful information about flashing a ds

    Whole chance of bricking bit has put a bit of fear into me about flashing the DS, as it is a DS Lite. Besides, I can run everything I need with what I have already, seems unnecessary. Also, thanks, Cat, for telling me how to boot it in gba mode, couldn't find that anywhere, and most of the time I just leave a 3in1 in there with a game on NOR, so it's useful.

    Well there is always a chance to fixing it after it bricks, I bricked my DS 3 times already and fixed it each time, just use the key commands up there.
    And your welcome ^-^ I am always glad to help.

    Seems a perilous journey to take advice from someone who has bricked their DS 3 Times.
