Is it safe to switch cartridges while the system is still on?

As long as you exit the game/close the app?

I've been doing it because there doesn't seem to be a need to turn the game off and put a new game in. But I'm not doing anything risky am I?

I just got my 3DS today so I don't know much about it.

As far as I know it's perfectly fine, I've been doing it since I first got my 3DS.

The system either wouldn't allow it (the original DS and DS Lite will freeze if you remove the DS game card from the system while it is on) or would display a message if you did so (like it does if you remove your SD card while the system is running).

The manual says its fine as long as the system is off or at the main menu. (You have to fully exit the game first)

Yep, no trouble at all, just don't do it when the game is on, especially if you're saving.

Yes, as long as you're at the HOME Menu and the cartridge game isn't running.

EDIT: Wow, the "more topics from this board" at the bottom keeps leading me to old topics >_>
