First before you can use the memory card on your DS lite you have to first use the DS lite to format the memory card before putting games this ensures that the game would recognise whatever games you then put on the memory card. Hope this solution has been helpful?
put the software on the sd card the ds kernal software then goto the removeble drive, open it and create a new folder, call it Games, put all of the games into this folder so it creates a new directory in the menu. Make sure you u use winrar or winzip to extract the files to the folder.
put the sd micro card into your computer with a USB reader and open to read the files, then click on games and see what games are loaded. You can download ds lite games from the internet and use drag and drop to load the load the games onto the sd card.
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
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.
Have you installed Moonshell onto the micro-SD card? It has to be there to see the games. If you have Moonshell installed, you should be able to navigate to where you stored your files. Your adapter should have come with a CD with Moonshell on it or you can download a newer version on the internet.
