    =O I remember another guy said the same thing 7 months ago (around the time the eShop was released).

    They're encrypted so the exact use isn't known to the public.

    Try putting some windows commands in it and see if they work on the 3ds :lol:

    They are probably files for certain data the 3DS stores on the SD card.
    They probably aren't interesting at all.

    36*36*36 = 46656 different file extensions for a 3-character (alphanumeric) extension.

    As a result, the well-over 50000 file types must share some extensions.

    So, it is probably a different type of CMD than you are thinking.

    i.e. LST can either be a text file or a LightScribe Template file.

    I've seen some scripts and CMD files from the official SDK that got leftover in NDS ROMs accidentally. I don't have any specific examples, but the files appeared to resemble something you would find in the SDK.

    File associations aren't concrete.
