    No. Not Pokemon X, Pokemon Y.
    Whenever I put my Pokemon Y cartridge into the power save and load up the program, Insert your game cartridge, no hardware found, and the pc/cartridge screen will flash. I cant figure out how to fix this problem. It doesnt do this with Mario Kart 7, so I dont know how to fix it. I seriously just bought it and taking out all of the ports, reinstalling it, and taking it out and putting it back in didnt work. Any suggestions?

    I get mine monday I'll find out but.....2 questions
    What windows are you running and do you have it (the device) connected to USB 2.0 or 3.0 (3.o has a blue stopper in the USB port) I heard windows 8/8.1 would give you trouble as well as plugging it into a 3.0 port (It's a 2.0 device)
