    And 'just a device to connect my NDS *chip* to my PC' isn't reaaaaly helping. I'm assuming it would be an N-card clone of sorts, or maybe a G6DS? Maybe you need to run something on ur DS (N-card / express card / whatever) or your card might be bricked. Tried on another computer?

    Could be a handful of things:

    1. You card reader is not functioning properly.
    2. You've got too many other processes operating on your computer at the moment when you're trying to access the reader drive and your computer won't recognize it fully. This happens to me often, and I'll have to close out other programs on my low-end PC in order to access the microSD.
    3. It could also be that your microSD card isn't sitting quite right in the reader. Try repositioning it.
