    I wanted to play some old DS games on my 3ds and have a drawer full of flashcarts. I was wondering if any of them will work on the latest 3ds.

    I am fairly sure that these will not work but please correct me if I am wrong:
    Edge
    DSTT
    M3 DS Real
    Acekard 2 & AceKard 2i

    I am hoping one of these will work:
    EzFlash Vi
    R4i 3DS revolution(www.r4ids.cn) (NOT the version with RTS on the label)
    R4i 3D revolution(www.r4idsn.com)
    WiFi R4i v1.4.3 Upgrade Revolution(www.r4i-sdhc.com)

    Any advice is appreciated.

    If you have a Gateway 3DS flashcard, you can install this
    and it should unblock some of those flashcards. If not, you can downgrade your 3DS to firmware 4.x if it is on firmware 9.2 or below and if it is a regular old 3DS or an old 3DS XL using the Gateway 3DS exploit (but no flashcard is necessary to just downgrade). On firmware 4.x, most flashcards should work

    There are serveral more working: Ace3DS+, DSTWO, cards by R4isdhc.com etc.
    But one question: which revision is your R4i 3DS revolution(www.r4ids.cn) (NOT the version with RTS on the label)? The revision is a letter or number at the contacts, written on the PCB.

    There is a number 8 on the PCB all the way to the right.

    Sorry the latest FW blocks all of these carts..I bought a ndsi specifically for DS games. DS games look better on the original system.

    Okay, that's not compatible with the latest 3DS firmware.

    That's only true if you are a purist. The 3DS actually uses screen smoothing, which makes DS games look less pixelated.
