    it doesn't seem to read the Mini SD card, it just comes up with a black screen after booting.
    I place the english system file thing on the root of the card and I use the included software to add games to it but it just doesn't read the card.

    I've tried reformatting the card with FAT and FAT32 but it doesn't make any difference.

    the gba cart recognizes that a miniSD is inserted because when I remove it it says no "SD card found"

    looks like this

    Hmm, maybe only some of the pins of the MiniSD socket are functioning.

    Card Detect is only one pin of MiniSD (pinout)

    I'm gonna buy a new mini SD, smallest and cheapest I can find and see if that helps

    if not I'll get a ez flash 3in1 or ezflash IV
