    It turns out that I had purchased one a few months ago. I threw away the packaging a while ago. Due to this I do not have a product key and cannot use the software. I've tried contacting Datel but I haven't received a response yet.

    Is there anything I can do without buying another device. I guess I just wasted £15

    I entered some garbage for the product key and managed to get in. The OK box is protected until you enter a certain amount of characters. The new is issue is that I get an error message, No online content available. I've tried with four games so far: Bravely Default, Zelda OoT, Mario Kart 7, Resident Evil: Revelations and no dice. I am able to back the games up however.

    I finally understand the nature of my predicament. Ultimately it requires a product key, it's probably used to indicate which server the software will connect to as there is a difference between cartridges of different regions. They probably do not share the same database and that would explain my above picture of No online content available. It makes sense that the NTSC-U servers do not hold the game code for the PAL games I have. I did manage to snag an American product key but I'm not sure if it's a one time use thing and that I was never connected in the first place

    In the end I'm going to have to buy another one :(
