    Hi, recently, i received the N3DS i ordered few weeks ago but i can't open the cover (missing stuffs) so i'm trying to use microSD management feature with no success.
    If i try to use the Network task on my Windows 7 PC, i get an infinite loading screen. I also tried to use jFTP ( http://j-ftp.sourceforge.net/ ) but after connecting, i get this error:
    Someone knows how to solve?

    Try these steps:

    1. Connect your n3ds to the router, open microSD management, and register a connection. Connect to PC.
    2. Go to Start --> Computer
    3. At the top of the window, select "Map Network Drive"
    4. Select the n3ds's name from the drop down arrow on 'Folder'
    5. Click 'Finish'

    A folder with your n3ds microSD's contents should appear.

    Yes, anyway solved by inserting a thing like this in address bar on my PC: \\HostnameGivenByN3DS\. Maybe it can be helpfull if someone encounter the same issue.

    Hm that is weird. I'm just gonna suggest some more stuff in case you want to further investigate and/or for others with a similar problem.
    So, off the top of my head this could be because:
    1. Network discovery is not enabled.
    2. Your network is set to public.
    3. LLTD protocol disabled.
    4. Firewall is messing with you :P
    5. As mentioned before, 3DS and PC are in different workgroups.

    A proper screwdriver is only a few bucks, if that's really the problem here. If you want a bigger card you'll need it anyway.

    I don't need a bigger microSD card for now cause i want to use this N3DS only for developing purposes (I prefer my PSVITA to play instead of my 3DS/N3DS :P )
