I have asked for this to be moved to "Misc", as Feedback is for feedback about "HUKD".

Personally, I would just try it and see.

Edit, it seems to be in the process of moving to misc.

It should come with a CD with the software on. Even though the software/firmware on your current SD card may work it would be wiser to use the one on the disc as it will be newer firmware which will work better. Then you just copy the games folder over to the new card.

Download 4.2a - http://down.gbalpha.com/GBalpha/Softwares/G6&M3DS-R_E35.zip

Put the "SYSTEM" FOLDER in Root of MicroSD

then make a a "NDS" FOLDER (not in the system folder) - Roms go here

I would never advise anyone to use the software provided on a disc. It is more than likely out of date.

You don't know how long it has sat on a shelf before dispatch.
Very few cards are shipped with CD's for this very reason.

Always download it from the manufacturers site, or a site that hosts it.

Hmm, I would usually say that Saint but having looked at the official M3 website and at their sister site - neither listed the latest firmware for the M3 Real. So I assumed that they must either be shipping with the latest firmware or include instructions with it on where to get the firmware.

Personally I would consider using firmware downloaded from say a torrent or similar would be more dodgy than using the one that came on a disk directly from the manufacturer - no matter how old.

the m3 ds didnt come with any software
it just tells me to
download version 3 software i am currently waiting for a sdhc card usb reader to arrive to try it as my micro sd usb reader will not reconize sdhc cards i got instuctions with the card that says install system v 3.0 from site m3 adter.com that then refers u to a site called called dsgogogo.com which has a whole range of software to download ie video player mp3 player cheats but im not sue which is the software i need soi can tranfer my old roms off my micro sd card onto it and they will play

I suggest you use link DelBoy100 posted - it was the only one I could find also. Obviously the manufacturers have had some sort of legal battle/warnings about hosting/including the firmware with the M3 cartridges. My Simply one I purchased a couple of years ago (maybe longer) came with a disc, I had no idea this was not the practice any more.

Here is the guide I found that included the link posted by DelBoy:

Hopes this helps you out.
