    I turned on my DS a minute ago and it said it wasn't formatted in fat (which it was) so I then proceed to put it in my computer to format it again and its telling me it cant read it and nothing i try is working. I dont care about losing any of the files on it but how do I make it work again!? Im using a mac. please help.

    If possible, try formatting it in a camera or a phone.

    yea the reading part of the sd gets scratched and you cant read eventually--so save a backup every time you transfer stuff
