    You need an audio cable in order to transfer something as large as a photo, while also doing it in a reasonable amount of time.

    You were probably using it wrong. Like Shelly said, You need an audio cable in order to transfer a photo.

    What exactly were you doing? The best way to do it without a cable is to do 300 baud, and select the mode which says "Send with ARQ". Some other tips: -Do it in a quiet room, to avoid interference. -Perform the transfer with max volume on the 3ds. This makes it more accepting to any other noises which may be present, but will also make the transfer process far less pleasant. -Put your 3ds and computer in a box, or cover it with a blanket. Low interference really is the key to a good transfer. If you chose to put the setup in a box I would try 300 baud first, and move to 600 baud if you are having good results. Hope this helped!

It was actually really close to completely sending the file, but it didn't work. Posted

    Complications are almost always due to noise interference. Try putting it in a closet, a box, or under a blanket which isn't moving. Also, did you say 600 baud? I was never able to get that to work using acoustic coupling.

  • #10 ✎ 122 amihart I had to figure out photo transfer for my Continuance game. I saved the image as a PPM (GIMP supports this format) then transferred it over audio cables with PetitModem. On the other end I wrote software to decode it and draw it to the screen (I picked PPM because it's an incredibly simple format). After that I saved the image using GSAVE so I could later load it very fast using GLOAD. In my experience PetitModem doesn't work at all through an actual microphone and speakers. You absolutely need audio cables, especially for an image as it will take quite a long time to transfer an image. Audio cables will also let you transfer audio to your game as well (that voice sample in my Ringman game was transferred over audio cables), so I'd highly recommend them. Posted

  • #12 ✎ 122 amihart I bought this splitter recommended by PetitProfessor3D and two of these Amazon Basics auxiliary cables. Seemed to work for me. Although strangely the 3DS will only sometimes recognize sound through the microphone port so I'd constantly have to unplug it and restart the software until it finally recognized it but when it did it transferred without a hitch (albeit very slowly).

    You might have some luck using a single TRRS cable between the 3DS and computer, since they both have TRRS jacks. I tried that and didn't have much luck though for some reason.

    That won't work since the mic and speaker signals need to be swapped. Otherwise the 3DS speaker output connects with the laptop speaker output, rather than the mic input like it should.

    Actually it did work.

    Like a crossover cable?
