    Software mod for 3DS instead of a hardware chip

    Good afternoon and thank you in advance for any direction. I have valued these forums for years, and was more than happy when I was able to mod my kids Wii to run a USB loader and store all our games on a hard drive. No more lost or scratched disks!

    This has begged the question from me. I multiple 3DS machines in the house for the kids, and like the Wii I would love to be able to load games onto the SD card instead of constantly helping to find lost or misplaced game cartridges.

    Is there a software mod that can be done to the 3DS to allow me to store rom files for games on a SD card in the machine? All I have seen on my cursory look have been these Flashcards like the Gateway 3DS.

    Thank you again, appreciate any feedback or direction.

    There has been no news of such. If it does exist, it hasn't been made public.

    If I spelled something wrong, I'll just blame it on auto-correct

    Unfortunate. That was not the answer I was hoping for. Being this the case, (and thank you again for the timely response to my question) would you have a recommendation on the hardware solution? I clicked a couple links and, to be honest, some of those places look pretty scammy.

    Thank again for any direction and help.

    It depends on what you are wanting to do and how much you're looking to spend. If you're looking to play 3DS backups I believe your only choice is Gateway.

    Buy them digitally from eShop and you can have them stored on SD Card.

    You just won't be able to move them from unit to unit. The game will be tied to that console.

    With the exception of the latest Zelda, I've not bought a 3DS cart in over a year.
