    No emulators detect it anymore, Snes9x, FCEUGX, VBA, they all say it wasn't detected. It still works in Nintendont and USB loader GX.

    GenplusGX also doesn't work, basically nothing works except for those two.

    It's formatted in Fat32, basically nothing was changed except that I used it as a bootable USB stick to install Windows 10 once, but after that I formatted it so it should be working.

    maybe some files corrupted during transfer?
    turning a stick into a bootable medium might have fucked with the filesystem to some degree... have you tried a different stick?

    Yes, I have tried a different one. Still the same symptoms.

    UPDATE: Tried formatting the SD card with 32kb cluster size as was recommended somewhere else but still the same situation.

    Emulators just aren't picking up my USB stick. Neither through forwarders nor through the homebrew channel.

    check whether your USB stick was formatted as GPT, most homebrews do not support this, use MBR instead
    easy way is to re-partition your USB stick (delete partition, create partition, format drive), make sure you choose MBR, and note, all data in your USB stick will be lost!

    Did you ever solved it, OP? I have the same problem and it's driving me crazy!

    EDIT: fixed it, made a thread to document :)

    Your files might of been corrupted, or you have some how damaged your USB. :unsure:
