    Hello.
    I got my DSTWO in the mail today, and I plugged it in and put all the needed software, and put it in my 3DS. However, when I went to use the USB again, it wouldn't work. Tried on 3 computers. MicroSD looks crooked in the USB.
    I am putting it in right, though, as i'm putting the SD in the same way I did before.
    Help?[​IMG]

    And the USB I have is right here.

    I second darksweet's suggestion of buying another, but not because "so what, it's cheap". It's for a technical reason.

    Look at the microSD's files again. Are some named weird names, like "USBCè", "USBN.âo¶7l³1" etc.? Does using the Check Disk tool in Windows tell you some files are corrupted? (My Computer, right-click the USB reader's drive, Tools, Check Disk)

    If so, that's why you should discontinue using this reader. At least mine did this - dunno about yours.

    Therefore I'd sooner go with a USB microSD card reader: http://www.amazon.com/Sandisk-MobileMate-SDDR-121-Bulk-Package/dp/B0012Y02CE/ref=pd_sim_e_3
    or a multi card reader: http://www.amazon.com/Transcend-Flash-Memory-Reader-TS-RDP5K/dp/B001NS828K/ref=pd_sim_sbs_e_4
    or... well, I have a slot built into my computer for cards, so I don't need those at all.

    The MicroSD readers that come with flash carts are pieces of shit and you should never use them in the first place, unless you like them randomly dying, corrupting files as they overheat, and potentially kill your MicroSD itself.

    I bought a 16 GB MicroSD with a Lexar Card Reader. Looks better then the one I had.

    Sometimes they'll work fine for a while (mine worked for like two months), but they have an alarmingly-high failure rate and should not be relied on.
