So I popped in my MicroSD to update to the latest AKAIO and I can't seem to be able to add or remove any files. What do I do? I can't reformat or anything.

Are you using a MicroSD/HC -> SD adapter?
If so, many of the adapters have a lock on the side.

And I can still delete stuff on the DS... wtf's up with that? Only the computer sees it as read only?


The same thing happens when I put any SD card into my PC's SD Slot. I have to use an old USB Multi-card reader to remove files from it.

No idea why.

It really was the reader, tried the one that came with R4 just now and everything's fine. Thanks guys. I can't believe I got so worked up over this POS.
