Hello everyone! I just got my M3 Real today with my micro-sd card. The thing is, it doesn't work. When I plug the adapter in my computer, it asks for a driver...but I can't find it anywhere...Does anyone knows what to do? Thanks a lot!

My brother left his reader plug in for like a hour to copy over some roms and it got overheated and fried. The red light in the reader doesn't even light up anymore. Anyways don't leave it in your pc too long and just use a microsd reader if your reader breaks.

Help me! I googled for this and it brought me to this forum!

I have vista home premium 64 bit, and here's my issue.

I have an M3 Simply. It came with a use micro SD reader. Vista says that it's unable to use the device, unless it has a driver.. Is there any fix? I really, REALLY need help! I looked all around, and only come back to this post! Pleaseeee help

Well, if the included reader doesn't have a Vista X64 drivers...

And FYI, Vista X64 drivers are usually only from known manufacturer and popular products right now. The included adapter is probably from a unknown brand and only has drivers for WinXP 32bits.

i think i've done the same on my mac. it worked fine a couple of weeks. left it plugged in and then it just stopped working. dealextreme were kind enough to send a replacement of my choice.

bump, I fixed it

Put in the reader, the found new hardware wizard pops up

click locate the driver, specify location

specify this folder: C:\Windows\System32\DriverStore

Click ok, it should install correctly. If it asks for any more drivers (mine did) just keep using that folder.
woot.
