    Hey all [​IMG]

    I currently have a Nintendo DSi XL. I am also thinking of buying a 3DS. Obviously
    I would want my flashcard to work. I was just wondering, will the one I bought
    for my XL work on the 3DS? Or do I have to buy another card?

    Any advice would be great. The acekard 2i says DSi compatible on the front,
    but not 3DS!

    Out of the box: NO

    After updating the flashcart: Maybe, depends on how new a system update is.

    I forgot
    Go to the Acekard site and download the latest update, put it in the root of your SD card and run it on your DSi. Once that's finished it should work with the latest update for the 3DS, showing either a Chessmaster icon or a Dorasu icon (I'm not quite sure which it is, another member here can confirm which it is.)

    NOTE: NEVER update your 3DS before making sure your card works, just come to the forums and look for the thread about the update and check and see if your card will work, if not then don't update your 3DS until the Acekard site (acekard.com) has the firmware update that will work with your 3DS version.

    It will work on all versions of the 3DS as of now. You will probably have to update your flashcard but you can do that with your current DSi. So there is no reason for it not to work.

    i am sure the acekard 2i you already bought can work on your 3DS as well,
    http://www.acekard.com/download/ak2/ak2ifw...ds21_DSi143.zip here is ak update patch for DSi V1.43 and 3DS V2.1.0--4. so you can use it to update your ak2i. by the way, you need to get a DS or DSi(should < V1.43 firmware ) console to update the card.
