    Seedminer has nothing to do with a flashcard...

    For what a flashcard? Use twilight menu++ if you want to play ds games.

    You can if you have cfw installed.

    I don't understand? Of course you need your own sd card.

    yes
    edit: i just copied the NintendDsi name on the guide and pasted that there as a new folder. I think I didn't have it because I didn't have any dsiware

    ID0-ID1-Nintendo Dsiware I don't remember very well but I'll check
    edit:

    Nintendo 3DS -> <ID0> -> <32-character-id> -> Nintendo DSiWare

    Jou probably just made the Nintendo dsi folder
    Also the 32character ID can be called ID2 i think

    I don't think you will need to touch the ID0 folder, just ID1 that's in the ID0 and the Nintendo DSI that's in the ID1
    edit: I don't think you can break anything yet you will see if it worked after a few steps
