    So this started happening out of no where. I'm using version 1.06. I have restarted my computer, as well as the flash card and diskwriter. But every time i try to write a game, with .3ds and .3dz, it just wont write.

    does anyone know why?

    Wow, that's new to me. Are you running disk writer in windows xp compatibility mode with administrators rights? Have you altered the roms or template files in any way? Tested a different sd card?

    First off, this use to work. I'm running it on windows 7 and im running the program as admin. I went into gateway patcher and changed the roms to a private header, then no ban no sky to patch the template, updated the template in diskwriter and the file > write > error. and I cant really test another card because its the only microsd card i have that i bought specifically for this. also, Ive tried to write the original file again, but thats not even working. Ive also tried other versions of diskwriter, but same thing

    Can you try a different USB port? I had the same issue until I switched ports. I did switch back after a couple weeks and it worked. *shrug*

    Well im trying to write to the microsd card, which requires the bigger sd card and theres only one of those slots on my macbook. How do you write on a sd card with a USB?

    It might be because you patched the roms with the gateway patcher tool. Not sure, but do you have any unpatched roms to try?

    same problem like yours, I got a branded microSD card reader 3.0 which doesnt works with sky3ds diskwriter, but when i use a cheap, very cheap microSD card reader 2.0, it works like a charm, something like this http://www.amazon.com/USB-Micro-Card-Reader-Writer/dp/B001MXON98. I use a noname 2.0 card reader and Toshiba class10 microSD.
