    So. I have an M3i zero. It stopped working suddenly, saying a file was corrupt, and to reformat the disk. so, I popped the flash card reader into the computer, copied my files to another folder(downloaded a new copy of Sakura too, and I think I might need new software for the actual m3i?), and reformatted. It finished, and I went to copy my files to the M3izero drive. It wasn't there. Instead there was just a drive labeled "J". I tried opening it, but it says there is no disk. I tried reformatting, but of course, it's not reading the disk, so can't do that. I tried restarting, and of course that didn't work. This m3i, card reader and card are just about a year old. What can be wrong? How can I fix this? or do I have to buy a new flash card reader and disk? (How do I do that without having to buy the whole package, anyway?)

    By M3iZero drive, do u mean ur memory stick micro? And yes if u cant access ur memory stick micro while it is in ur computer, u need to try to use the SD Formatter (found on filetrip), and if u cant format that means u got a bad micro sd card, and u need to get another one

    Yeah, I mean the Little chip (sorry, I always forget what it's called) that goes into the cartridge, and into the flash card reader. It's showing up as a drive called J, when previously it was called "M3iZero". When i click it, it says "Please insert a disk into removable drive J". Where on filetrip can I find this, and how does it work? I already formatted it, and I think that might have caused the problem.
