    I just got my m3i zero in today, and I am stumped about how to use the card reader. My microsdhc won't fit inside the blue part, and this is really frustrating me (I wanna play!!!) [​IMG]

    can anyone help me with how to use this darn thing?

    Take a look on youtube, there's some vids there which shows you the technique for this.

    okay turns out my card reader is defunct... the slot is too small for me to fit it in... I just broke my micro sdhc trying to do it ): but I'm not gonna ship it back to China just to get a new one lol so I'll just buy one from amazon.... oh and a new sdhc card

    That sucks.... the M3 MSD reader that came with mine is one I use regularly. Also note that the M3 reader: The MSD does NOT go in all the way. It's supposed to be like that.

    m3 cards always come with bad readers.
    mine had the same problem(slot being too small)
    and the one that came with my m3real messed up my microSD far enough to crash windows.

    it's always best to get a microSD reader from a well known microSD brand(usually those that come with a microSD should be good)

    the best readers were the readers that came with the M3DSS/R4DS

    yeah...those little readers(pictured below) that look like sandisk mobile mates are complete garbage, I had one and the slot broke inside so my microsd would go all the way in and it wouldn't read! A terrible design! Luckily My other m3's had come with the little black brick which work awesome so I had no need for the little bruised piece of garbage.
