Adjusting 3D Images
The 3D effects generated by the Nintendo 3DS
are created using the binocular disparity of the
eyes (the ability to interpret 3D images due to
the difference in position of the left and right
eye). By manipulating the 3D Screen so that
the left eye sees only the left image and the
right eye only sees the right image, vivid and
convincing 3D effects can be produced.
Left eye image
3D image
Adjusting the Strength of 3D Images
Use the 3D depth slider next to the 3D Screen to increase or decrease the 3D effect. If placing the 3D depth slider at the top (strongest 3D effect)
makes the 3D images difficult to see, move it downwards little by little until you reach a point where the 3D images are distinct and easy to see.
As you become more accustomed to the 3D feature, you may find that raising the 3D depth slider results in better effects.

Weak
t Move the 3D depth slider to the lowest point to display images in 2D.
Tilting the screen or viewing it from an angle interferes with the 3D effect, and can
cause the screen to appear dark or cause you to see a double image.
Note:
Adjusting the 3D depth slider while the 3D LED is off will not result in 3D images being displayed.
Certain types of content, including 3D videos and photos, do not allow adjustments in 3D strength. When viewing such content, adjusting the slider will
only switch between 2D and 3D images. If you find the 3D effect to be uncomfortably strong while viewing these types of content, it may help to hold
the system at a greater distance from your face. If you still find it difficult to see, then try viewing the content in 2D.
Display of 3D images can be disabled in Parental Controls (page 78).
Do not view 3D images in direct sunlight or in the direct path of other strong light sources. This may make the 3D images difficult to see.
3D images may be difficult to see depending on your surroundings (page 96).

Precautions for viewing 3D Images
How to View 3D Images Properly
Follow the steps below to ensure that 3D images appear properly.
1
32
Look directly into the 3D Screen.
2
Hold the 3D Screen 25 – 35 cm away from your eyes. Adjust
the distance until you can see the 3D images easily.
The use of the 3D feature by children aged six and under may cause vision damage. Everyone will have a different way of viewing 3D images.
If you see a double image or are unable to see 3D images even when viewing them correctly and with the proper settings, please use the
2D display only. You may need to adjust the 3D depth depending on your physical condition, the content of the images and your surrounding
environment. If you experience double vision, headaches, nausea, tired eyes or any sudden changes in your condition, stop playing immediately
and take a break.
For health and safety advice on 3D images, see page 13.

Using SD Cards
The included SD Card comes pre-inserted into the SD Card slot on your Nintendo 3DS system. You can use an SD Card to back up photo data or to
store music to play back (the type of data you can save varies between software titles).
If your SD Card is full...
To free up space on a full SD Card, delete photo, video or sound files you no longer need via Data Management in the System Settings
(page 82). Alternatively, transfer all of the data from your current SD Card to one with a larger capacity. You can save software to another
SD Card, but cannot later combine the contents of multiple SD Cards.
In order to transfer data, you will need a computer and a commercially available SD Card reader / writer and should transfer the entire
“Nintendo 3DS” folder to the target SD Card.
Note: With the exception of Nintendo DSiWare (page 64), all downloaded software is stored on the SD Card. Downloaded software (including its save data)
cannot be moved or copied individually between SD Cards.
Using MiniSD / MicroSD Cards

The closer the subject is when
you take the photo / video, the
stronger the 3D effect.
One metre is the optimal
distance for 3D photos / videos
