Hi guys, long time reader first time writer. I have a question about my n3ds hard-mod. first off i'm an electrical engineer, this hard-mod was very basic and i'm very confident in my soldering skills and have checked all my points(with my multimeter). I've used small gauge wire. of less then 3 inch length. soldered to dat0 & cmd on the back side of motherboard, and alt clk and ground on the top side of motherboard. I did accidentally squish my home button flex cable rendering it useless for a day(but have since repaired the flex cable and have it working again). .. Anyway onto my question. I have my hard-mod setup, and confirmed i do get blue screen when plugged into an sd reader and power it up, and unplugged n3ds works as normal. but i am having no luck getting it to detect on my pc's. IE i plug in my hard-mods sd card adapter to n3ds and to sd card reader and although i boot to blue screen i can't get windows to detect that i've plugged anything in. I have tried several sd card readers, and 3 different systems (i havnt tried a nix system yet, but could if need be and dd the nand). Is it possible that all my sd card readers are non-compatible(they are all a couple years old usb2), if so is there a brand/model currently available you can suggest. or does the problem lie elsewhere. total length of wiring is less then 6 inches, inside ds wiring is smaller(133mhz ide cable) than sd card adapter(slightly larger). The plan is i have a 9.4 launch n3ds red. never updated. i'de like to downgrade it to 9.2 but will not attempt until i get a good copy of my nand for backup purposes. any help/suggestion would be appreciated. I'de take a pick of my mod install job but i have it all back together and plugging in the 2 zif connectors on the under side of the motherboard is a pain. P.S. i have an o3ds(retro nes) and 2ds (red) neither with hard-mod, but have backed up my nand's from both consoles via gateway.(and have confirmed they are good dumps that flash back to their respective console no prob). I could hard-mod my o3ds for testing purposes if need be.
