    Hi! I bought my N-card with a USB. But when i plug it in my computer,nothing happens.i think my computer can't read the USB cable.but it's just new! How can i get it to work. I want to delete some games i have and put music files instead.
    I'd really appreciate your help.

    is your ds on at the time... you should have the choice of usb mode or menu mode on the ds when your firewriter is in the ds.. usb mode for transferring data

    yup, it's turned on. but it doesn't say usb mode or menu mode. it just says game pak inserted but i can't press it. Do i need to install a software to my computer before i can use it? Coz when i bought the n-card it came with the usb cable and the game pak slot for the USB cable only.
    thanks!

    If you're running a windows version later then 98, it shouldn't need drivers as it acts as a mass storage device.

    Before starting the DS up, make sure the DSstyle Cartridge is in the first slot, the GBAstyle cartridge in the second one and that the USB cable is connected between the GBA and the PC.
    Now start the DS and click the option to start the DS game (N-Card).
    Now choose the bottom option USB Mode.
    Windows will tell you a mass storage device was found and probably ask you how to open it, choose that you want to show the files/folders on it. Or just open My Computer and choose the new drive thingy over there.
    There you can just drag&drop stuff like you normally would.

    you dont click on the 'ds option pack' you click on the 'ncard' box then there will be a 'usb mode' and 'menu' screen.
