I recently got a usb nand mod installed, and the installer was able to make two successful dumps with it that matched. The problem is, my Win8 laptop won't recognize it at all. Not even in disk management. I've also tried with a Win7 laptop and my RaspberryPi (with dd command) The RaspberryPi is a Model B+ if it makes any difference. Now, with my RaspberryPi, I did make a dump, but was 80 bytes, so I'm probably doing it wrong. I think the problem is finding it's correct location. I traced it back to /dev/bus/usb/001/005 with this tutorial Code: dd if=/dev/usb/bus/001/005 of=/home/pi/nand.img bs=1M That's the command I used to attempt to read from nand. I definitely don't want to try and write to it not knowing if it works properly. I am going to the store tomorrow to get a sdcard to usb reader because I assume the problems I'm having with the 80 bytes is because I'm using a multi-card reader. Here's the questions I have not been able to find an answer to: 1. Is there any type of driver / program I could install to help Windows recognize the 3ds? 2. Is there a technique to getting Windows to recognize it? ( I notice it's real picky ) 3. Am I using the dd command properly for this? Also I should mention that this 3DS is bricked, and I do have nand backups. I get BSOD with or without charger plugged in.
