I assume you have the correct firmware on the card?

You can't just drop it in the root without first having the correct firmware for your cart on the SD.

haha c u have both been debating it without me lol, i dont really no much about it its my mums and i kinda assumed in principle that it would be like the r4 card u can play any mp3's on it but the games are rubbish, it says as it comes on that it is not licensed sponsored or endorsed by nintendo!

so does a r4 card come with what u need 4 the games although the games on this r also all nds files but then im prob not understanding the whole thing lol

i would say this is similair to te r4 in idea exceot you can only download from the site it stipualtes (ie sample games etc)

With the r4,m3 dstt cards you have to add some software to the micro sd card,but it's easy to do and freely available.Here is a thread that might explain it better.

I would recommend you get one of the cards,save yourself a fortune,you can get them cheap from deal extreme,hope you get sorted,off to bed now,night night.:thumbsup:

basically this will only play homebrew games not actual full game roms like the ones you,ve downloaded onto it.homebrew games are ones that people have created themselves i think.
they wont be very clever.
get yourself a r4ds cart or one of the cheaper ones off deal extreme and your away.
