Apparently m3 dont do upgrades now but this might help http://www.m3-forums.net/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=312
basically it converts the r4 ds menu.dat to work on m3 simply (may work for m3 real) so now all you have to do is go to r4 download site and download latest version. 1.18 from here http://www.r4dscart.com/r4-software.html (select the english update) then patch ur dat file replace it back to where you took it from before patching and then copy all 4 files ( _system_ moonshi _ds_menu.dat _ds_mshl.nds) into the root of micro sd card. advise you to copy any files/games you have on your mem card then copy the games over to your newly installed firmware. oh by the way in the link i provided on how2 patch the ds_menu.dat it might be bit vague on where you put the ds_menu.dat file to patch it, all you do is drag and drop it into the PATCH app thats inside the "r4 to m3 patcher" folder. post a reply to let me know how you got on

    oh by the way i dont think you will need to copy the "_system_" or "moonshi" folders to your mem card just your (patched) _ds_menu.dat and the _ds_mshi.nds files

My nds says cant find _ds_menu.dat can you help


Hello.

If you're using an R4DS, make sure to read the web address on the front of the box it came in so you can download the proper firmware.

Insert your MicroSD card into it's converter or plug, and slot it on your computer. Browse the card. Your directories (depending on your R4 type) should look like this:

Root:
_system_
moonshl
_DS_MENU.dat
_DS_MENU.ini
_DS_MENU.sys
_DS_MSHL.nds

That is what needs to be on the MicroSD card for it to run.

You must create another folder on the card for your roms.

If this isn't your card, please tell us which card you're using, be it Acekard, CycloDS, or any others.

Downloaded kernel but still says Couldn't find DS_MENU.DAT


The file names are in some cases capital sensitive. Some card need the file name named like this _DS_MENU.dat or like this
_DS_MENU.DAT

Also try to reformat the memory card using fat32 and then put the new kerel files to memory card.

It's also better to use YSMenu, because the R4DS flash card adaptors wont get updated firmware anymore so as the support has stopped.

Or buy the Hyper-R4i card, this card has reprogrammable rom so that you can use it with a Nintendo DSi that is running on firmware v1.4 as well.

When i put my r4 into my ds its just says cant find menu?


hi it sounds like a software problem. follow the following instructions. Please can you try and reformat the 2gb micro sd card in your pc and copy firmware from the CD back onto the 2gb micro sd card following the instructions below. be warned that formating will remove even the games from the card so make sure you have a backup of the games saved to your computer. any saved games will also be erased.

To format the 2gb micro sd card
1. Insert sd card into usb stick and into usb port.
2. Close autoplay screen if it appears.
3. Right click on removeable drive. (Eg D, E, F or J etc) that appeared on screen in computer window.
4. Left click on format in menu and when format window appears, tick quick format box and select ok. This will erase all content on the sd card and remove any corrupt firmware.

To reload firmware
1. Insert cd into pc cd/dvd drive.
2. Open cd drive on screen and copy and paste the files and folders from the system/english 1.18 folder on the cd to the removeable drive that the usb and micro sd card are in. The folders that you will copy are "_system_" and "moonshl" and the files will be "menu.dat" and "mshl.nds".
3. Once copied, check removeable drive to ensure files and folders have copied over.
4. Remove usb stick from pc and insert sd card back into R4. R4 menu should appear on DS screen.
this normaly sorts this out. paul

Menu will not load


plug your usb for r4 in (with the adaptor) . go to "My Computer" , select "Removable Desk (F:)" .

when you do, look for _DS_MENU.DAT, if you cant find it, thats the reason for your R4 not working. if you found it, but your r4 is still not working, you've lost some systems for the R4, such as DS MSHL etc.

if you have, i advise you buy a new adaptor.

How to download games from pc to ds lite?


You need to get something like an M3 Real card which fits inside SLOT 1 of your DS (where the DS games go). The M3 card itself has a space for a micro SD card on which you will store the ROMS for the DS games you have on your PC. Note that downloading ROMS is ILLEGAL unless you have bought the original game. Hope this helps. I got my M3 Real from Deal Extreme - they are based in Hong Kong, but deliver promptly and have the best prices I have seen for the M3 Real.
