    I don't know about M3, but it should be like most CF slot 2 cards. 2GB will work for sure. 4GB might if you set it to use 64k clusters.

    I applaud you for having one of the very few M3 CFs on these boards.

    Hmm, natrium made an IDE mod that allowed you to hook up HDDs....I would say up to 237GB or something (FAT32 limit?)

    I have one too. And I will put up a warning to anybody using it...be careful inserting and removing the CF card from the M3 CF, as it doesn't fit perfectly snug. Due to this, it's possible to bend and break pins, and if you break a pin inside it and then insert it into your DS....

    POOF. No more DS. You'll short it out. Blown up more than 1 DS this way. ^^;;

    I thought most slot 2 flash carts only do FAT, not FAT32?

    guys do you get this clicking sound when you close the lid of the DS? When in a game, if i close the lid the ds makes a clicking noise and the power light starts flashing [​IMG]

    Put a real nds cart in slot 1. It will stop the clicking/flashing.

    I managed to pick up a 4gb Sandisk Ultra II CompactFlash card and it works perfectly with the M3.

    Just incase anyone else is thinking if asking the same question as i did.
