    New 3ds bricked, trying to hard mod with no success. Was able to boot with blue error screen, but pc could not see a new drive when plugged in. No format pop-up. Just showed empty drive with no media.

    Want to confirm if blue screen was displayed, does it mean cabling is OK? Just the card reader chip not compatible? Any cheap reader off eBay recommended for new 3ds? Or still a chance cabling was not good e.g. too long, even blue screen was displayed?

    Thank you

    Thanks. If the sd adapter is not put inside the card reader then no blue screen. Only has blue screen when put inside card reader. So that means cablings good?

    You won't know for sure until you make a backup, but that is a good sign. That is what's supposed to happen.

    Thanks. Any method to check the card reader chip version if not cracking the case open?

    Finally got it back. Used another card reader and the alt clk point.
    Thanks everyone.
