Im trying to delete that stupid 3D video it came with and i cant figure out how :(

i think you'll be able to delete them once nintendo gives us access to the data management in system setting.

because it lets you manage your software and things off of your sd card.

unfortunately, we need to wait for a system update for that.

also, just like ds games, your 3ds game saves are still stored in the cartridge, not the sd card so u dont have to worry

about space being taken up in ur sd card. i'm not sure about this particular video though. i have a feeling

it's in the 3ds system itself since it counts it as a "software." i'm pretty sure it's not in the sd

card either because i removed my sd card and i can still play the video.

For now you could always move things to the very end of the menu so you don't see them. That's what I did for things like "system warning and health".

Why would you do that?! Did you at least set it as your favourite game?

How do you move the icons on the home menu around? It was easy on the DSi where you just press up to lift it out and place it somewhere, but here, I can't figure it out.

Press yuour stylus on what you want to move and hold it there. It will wiggle then you can freely move them.

O jeez... you'd imagine a dude like me who's had a smart phone for years would've figured out a 'long press' before now... Thanks for the heads up.

According to Nintendo's website, the 3D music video will not stay there. This is quoted from Nintendo's web site, "Please note that the "White Knuckles" music video is provided for a limited time and may be deleted from your system with subsequent updates."

So Im guessing that with the next firmware update (or maybe the next major one, which will be the launching of the eshop), that 3D music video will be removed.

When you actually update the system, the first thing it says about the White Knuckles music video is that it WILL be deleted with the NEXT update.

People say video games actually cause OCD and ADHD, but the professionals say otherwise. But of course if someone not familiar with Gamespot came across this thread with a ton of gamers saying "Yeah, I have OCD too!", they're gonna get ideas. Infact, some scenario like that is probably how people even came up with the idea the video games cause OCD.

Just go into settings, then pick data management.
